The subject of the Thematic Report is on Pandemics and Natural Disasters as Reflected in History Teaching; therefore, experts should have relevant expertise on this subject as well as relevant experience in the field of history education. The intention is to have the report finalised around May 2022 and then published shortly afterwards. The Observatory’s annual conference 2022 shall then present the findings of the report. For the Thematic Reports, the Observatory is seeking to compose an expert group of up to three experts to draft the report.
The Regular Report will focus more generally on the State of History Teaching in Europe, with a focus on the history curricula, teaching practices and learning outcomes in the 17 member states of the Observatory. The Report shall be drafted over a longer period of time and is intended to be finalised by May 2023; it will then become the focus of the annual conference 2023. For the Regular Report, up to five experts are expected to be hired to draft the report.
Both groups of experts shall work in cooperation with the Scientific Advisory Council of the Observatory, who will approve the reports prior to their publications.
The deadline for the submission of applications for both calls is 15 September 2021 (23:59 CET).
For further information, please refer to the calls for experts for the Thematic Report and the Regular Report respectively below.
