ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this paper is to review current arguments for history education for/as citizenship education amongst scholars of history education in U.K. and U.S.A. Citizenship education was initiated in these countries as an alternative subject of traditional civics aiming at preventing pupils and younger generation from absorbing in political and social apathy in neoliberal hegemony from the beginning of this century. It influenced immediately scholars of history education who believed in presentism of historical studies. They produced plenty of articles which emphasized the role of history education as pedagogy for pupils’ practical and critical attitude towards the present political and social problems through historical inquiry of the past human experiences. In both sides of citizenship education scholars and history education ones, pupils’ ability of recognizing and interpreting the historical background and context of the present political and social problems are valued vital for them to critically think of current pathological situation and to actively participate in deliberating and direct acting for solution.
