Abstract [en]

Students find ethical and moral issues central and interesting when they interpret history. History can offer explanations and references to moral values that are still valid – or not valid – in our time. At the same time moral values provide conceivable contexts that connect students to the past. Views on interrelations between the past and the present seem to interact with the students’ moral foundations, questions, interpretations, understanding or repudiation. On a societal level similar phenomena can be identified when groups of people turn to history, either to handle challenges or to apologize or heal wrongs of the past. Furthermore the National Curricula prescribe ethical dimensions in school education, not least for the subject of history.

In this pilot study Swedish 9th grade students discuss a text from Christopher Brownings’ book Ordinary Men. The students’ answers are analysed in a theoretical model including different types of historical consciousness and different aspects of moral reasoning. The aim is to study if there are patterns of interrelations and, if so, how these patterns are manifested.
