Congratulations to Dr. Maria Neagu for her dissertation completed at the Université Laval in 2011, Conjuguer la nation au passé. Mémoire et identité dans les manuels d’histoire moldaves, 1918-2006 (Jocelyn Létourneau, supervisor). In this well-written and extensively researched study, Dr. Neagu makes a convincing case for studying school textbooks and curriculum documents to better understand the ways in which these official curriculum materials use historical events and figures to shape identity and conceptions of ‘nation’ in the citizenry.
Congratulations to Dr. Carla Peck, Department of Elementary Education at the University of Alberta, who has been awarded the 2011 THEN/HiER Publication Award for her article, “‘It’s not like [I’m] Chinese and Canadian: I am in between’: Ethnicity and students’ conceptions of historical significance,” published in Theory and Research in Social Education (2010). This article makes a significant contribution to understanding the teaching, learning and assessment of history in Canada.
