Professor Bermudez will present findings from her research on how history education fosters or hinders a critical understanding of political violence. She will focus on an analysis of history education resources from Spain, Colombia and the U.S. regarding nine different episodes of their violent past.  A comparative analysis identified ten “narrative keys” that describe how historical narratives represent political violence, and whether they normalize violence or foster a critical perspective on it.
