Reverberating Echoes: Challenging Teacher Candidates to Tell and Learn From Entwined Narrations of Canadian History
The authors report on a study with teacher candidates to illustrate the importance of explicitly engaging with the ways in which students' historical subjectivity depart from dominant historical narratives of a nation-state’s development so as to potentially derive alternative meanings of shared pasts from marginalized perspectives. The authors identify several tensions involved in work with multiple perspectives that shape historical narratives: a struggle to avoid culturally reductive or stereotypical images of otherness, the taming of historical complexity for ease of communication, and something of a fraught encounter with the dissonance as a reverberating echo at the heart of historical identifications and perspectives.
