Chapter: Recontextualization of Historical Memories into History Secondary Education in Chilean Schools

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.37659


Chapter 7 is a concluding chapter, in which I approach the general process of recontextualization of historical memories into history secondary education in Chilean schools. In this chapter I evaluate the teaching of recent history in Chile and the role of historicizing memory from a broader perspective, as well as the openings and encapsulations of memories in relation to official and alternative memories of Chilean recent past in a pedagogical context. I conclude the chapter with a reflection regarding new research avenues and linguistic intervention possibilities in secondary history school education.
