Students will analyse causes as well as the diversity of perspectives, opinions and interpretations in history to develop their critical thinking.
113 students will analyse the historical memory of the 2nd industrialization in San Sebastian (1950-1970). From urban and landscape changes, students will review changes in the town (demography, housing, public authorities); economy (sector and gender work distribution); and society (daily life, education, rites of passage, festivities and leisure). Within the project, students will re-discover their town, visiting buildings and neighbourhoods of the time and will interview people from their community (parents, grandparents, neighbours). Students will organize a final exhibition showing the results of their research using archive and object collections.
