Miriam Sénécheau

Miriam Sénécheau is research associate at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. She studied Prehistorical Archaeology, Medieval and Modern History at the universities of Tübingen, Aix-en-Provence and Freiburg and she completed her PhD at Freiburg University in 2006. Her research interests are the modes and problems of the mediation and reception of history and archaeology. For the project History in Popular Cultures of Knowledge she is currently doing research on representations of Celts, Romans and Germanic peoples in French and German media of institutionalized conveyance of history ("Popular Constructions of Ancient Lifeworlds"). One central aspect of the project is the question how the different historical and social contexts of France and Germany shape the representation of certain topics. Her latest publications concerning the workshop’s main topic are "Living History als Gegenstand Historischen Lernens. Begriffe – Problemfelder – Materialien,“ Stuttgart: Kohlhammer 2015, together with Stefanie Samida or „Archäologie im Schulbuch. Themen der Ur- und Frühgeschichte im Spannungsfeld zwischen Lehrplanforderungen, Fachdiskussion und populären Geschichtsvorstellungen. Schulbücher, Unterrichtsfilme, Kinder- und Jugendliteratur,“ Freiburg 2008 (Univ. Diss. Freiburg 2006).
