What should they know of England? History and citizenship

posted on 05.05.2022, 15:45 by Marcus CollinsMarcus Collins
This article argues that the traditional efforts to invest moral meaning in narratives of the national past are evident both in the government-sanctioned version of British history and the critiques of it by academic historians. These historians demonstrate that the official version of the British past glosses over past wrongs, but do not sufficiently challenge the notion that histories of a nation need be geopolitically focused or morally instructive.
