Abstract

This paper covers five areas. First, it examines the challenges faced when teaching history in the divided society of Northern Ireland. Second, it traces history teaching’s response through the evolution from a more traditional narrative approach to one characterised by enquiry, evidence handling and multi-perspectivity. Third, it draws on recent research to assess the strengths and limitations of the enquiry approach, particularly with regard to addressing controversial and sensitive issues in history. Fourth, it offers some thoughts on how the recent past can be handled in history lessons.
