Jornadas an education for the 21st century: 2019 looks from the sciences and the arts (06/02/2019)

Framed in the program of activities of the V Conference 'An Education for the XXI century', the meeting with the author will be presented with a presentation by the Colectivo de Historia Social de Cieza on Friday, February 8 at 8 pm at the Club Watchtower.

These V Days are a year more a bet for the reflection on the current educational model and the Public School that has deteriorated progressively during the last decade.

Faced with this social model, lacking criticism, participation and contribution to build a more just and supportive society, it is urgent and vital to present other views on Education.

The Atalaya Club, collaborating entity of these days, hosts this year the presentation of the book 'The black bulldozer of General Franco' by the historian Fernando Hernández Sánchez, associate professor of the Autonomous University of Madrid and Secondary Education, Doctor in Contemporary History by the UNED, member of the Association of Historians of the Present and collaborator of the Historical Research Center of Spanish Democracy.

While other university professors have limited their activity to the attempt to transmit certain knowledge, fruit of several years of hard research, Hernández has inquired about the knowledge that lives in his students.

"The recent history of Spain is studied in schools, a fact that we all have lived and that no one can deny with too much conviction," says the professor.

The historian Fernando Hernández Sánchez deals with this lack in his new book.

The author does not intend to replace the textbooks but to problematize the past, to bring to light his complex, contradictory, multifaceted and, at times, atrocious face, without which history ceases to be what it is to become a story.

In that sense, the Collective of Social History of Cieza that started in 2017, channels a critical reflection on the subject of study of history, to situate it in society.

The ignorance of our past contributes to increase the feeling of confusion in which we live.

The collective says: "Now, more than ever, against the intentional oblivion and control of history, which is trying to impose, we must fight for our memory and rescue the life stories of those people who gave themselves in the defense of justice , freedom and equality ".

The group inserts in its papers the forgotten point of view in the history manuals, discovers through social research those stories that do not tell us, because "the history that has a lot to do with the future of the peoples, must be rigorous ", they conclude.

In this new cycle of the collective, they will bring to mind key events in recent history: from collectives that promoted society to forgotten wars.
