Professors Mathias Möschel and Juliana Cesario Alvim Gomes take part in a series of roundtables on censorship in history education
On November 14, CEU will host the first of four roundtables focused on “Censorship and Self-Censorship in History Education”. The roundtables are organized by Ruben Zeeman, a second-year master’s student from CEU’s Department of History. The four conversations, each based on a case study, will include academics, high-school teachers and textbook publishers addressing a set of global trends: the increasing censorship of historical teaching and the broadening scope of censorship practices. The discussions, which will take place over the next four months, will refer to case studies from the United States, Hungary, Brazil and India. They will also examine a variety of techniques being used to curtail teaching.
