Teaching and Learning About Cross-Cultural Encounters Over the Ages Through the Story of Britain’s Migrant Past

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

Moncrieffe examines cross-cultural encounters through British History. He applies history curricula from Key Stage Two in England and Wales to gain greater insights and understandings about Britain’s migrant past. By reflecting upon his own past and through his own empirical research, he also applies an auto-ethnography concerning his identities by examining the events of the Brixton riots in London in 1981. We hear his voice, as well as his mum’s reflection, which produces some fascinating insights into the contested notions surrounding the events of 1981, which were nationwide and not centred only in Brixton. Moncrieffe then provides a comparison between Viking and Black histories and the historical content that shapes teaching and learning but also past and contemporary issues concerning cultural diversity which continues to shape historical curricula.
