History for Peace

History for Peace is a project of PeaceWorks—An initiative of The Seagull Foundation for the Arts

A network of educators and members of civil society in the subcontinent, the History for Peace project serves as a platform for discussion, debate and the exchange of ideas pertaining to teaching and learning of history for peace and understanding. The website also acts as a repository of resources—academic papers, talks, podcasts and teaching aids. History for Peace conducts an annual conference as well as shorter talks and workshops through the year.

Sign up as a member to access the discussion forums and contribute lesson ideas.

The objectives of the project are:

  • Exploring multi and inter disciplinary and creative approaches, with emphasis on the arts
  • Developing and collating resources
  • Addressing bias and prejudice
  • Promoting initiatives and exchange of ideas across South Asia
  • Teacher development
