EUSTORY History Campus
Critical, young voices and diverse approaches to current issues of remembrance culture: The EUSTORY History Campus offers young authors from Europe and its neighbouring countries a public platform to make their perspectives on history and the present, society and identity visible. At EUSTORY Summits and other international EUSTORY Youth Activities, the public blog also provides a protected forum in the form of virtual classrooms in which Europemakers of tomorrow work collaboratively and across borders.
The public blog forms the heart of the EUSTORY History Campus. Here, young Europeans share their perspectives on current questions of European history and identity, using very personal approaches and starting points: What does the grandmother’s heirloom reveal about the effects of the Carnation Revolution in Portugal? Why is the monument dedicated to the Red Army in Bulgaria’s capital currently so controversial? To what extent can a semester abroad in Belgium change one’s own view of the foreign, but also the perception of national historiography? And above all: What do these questions have to do with the present and with European identity?
In various thematic categories and journalistic formats, young perspectives are given a voice on the EUSTORY History Campus Blog and promote international dialogue on history and the present in their versatility and subjectivity.
