Abstract
Popular educational magazines are educational aids that can make a significant contribution towards improving and enriching history teaching. Although such magazines do not provide new solutions to academic problems, they should, just like specialist studies and monographs, be characterised by scientific objectivity and accuracy. Development of the popularisation of history and its connection with the didactics of history occurred in Czechoslovakia after the Second World War. This paper focuses on popular educational historical and historio-didactic magazines, opportunities for their use in teaching, changes relating to content and graphic design, the impact of ideology during the period of communist totalitarianism, and the new flourishing and pitfalls in the popularisation of history before 1989. Attention is also devoted to selected popular educational magazines published in neighbouring countries that are now available for use in school history teaching.
Abstract (in English)
Popular educational magazines, along with popular educational literature, factual literature, historical journalism, memoir literature, fiction, feature films and documentary historical films are all important and well-established teaching aids used in history lessons. Development of popular educational historical and historio-didactic magazines occurred in Czechoslovakia after the Second World War. After 1948, however, their content was fundamentally influenced by communist ideology and the uncritical acceptance and glamorisation of Soviet historiography and didactics as a model. Today, little use can be made of the magazines Společenské nauky ve škole (Social Science in School) and Dějepis ve škole (History in School) from the historical or didactic perspective. An exception is provided by a number of topics and regular columns from the 1980s (e.g. auxiliary historical sciences, chapters in the history of art, chapters in the history of Czech historiography). They are, however, useful as a source providing testimony to the time in which they appeared. The popularisation of history in magazine form flourished once again after 1989. The renowned magazine Dějiny a současnost (History and the Present Day), published in the years 1959–1969, holds a special position in the period studied as a whole. It was later banned, and publication was only resumed in 1990.
