Abstract [en]

Historical consciousness can be regarded as the impact of our interpretations of our past has on our understanding of the present and expectations of the future. It also defines the researchproblems this paper focuses on; that research shows how history education mainly instills a past perspective and how influential textbooks are in shaping the schools' history education. The purpose of this paper is to extrapolate from these subjects and through qualitative textual analysis examine historical consciousness in two textbooks for primary school. Historical consciousness has been operationalized around three categories in this paper:

  • Identity
  • Values
  • Narrative

The results of the analysis shows that both books centers around the perceived Swedish culture through a perspective of Swedish heritage and a thorough critique can be made on the implicitexclusion of pupils with non-Swedish heritage. The results of the analysis also points at the lackof explicit expressions with regards to the future in the textbooks.
