    Abstract

    POPP, Susanne. Trans-European convergences in national textbooks for history education? An approach to the comparison of image sources in schoolbooks. Yesterday today [online]. 2010, n.5, pp. 127-140. ISSN 2223-0386.

    According to findings of textbook analyses since 2004 all across Europe, students encounter a group of about 15 historical paintings and historical photographs in their history textbooks which are shown more often than average. This article will introduce this corpus and analyse those popular pictures according to historical-didactical standards. The questions of implicit historical theories as well as the proportion of national history and European education thereby seem to be especially important.

    Keywords : Iconic sources; Visual literacy in history teaching; History textbook research; International comparison of textbook developments; Historical consciousness; Transnational historical culture.
