NEW Agora! Edition on ‘Modern History’ available now

8 Jul 22

The latest issue of Agora explores several aspects covered in the new VCE Modern History Study Design. Thema articles examine conflicts such as Ukrainian sovereignty during the Russian revolution, the rise and spread of fascism as far as Australia, myths about the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, British intelligence documents during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the secrecy involved in nuclear weapons testing in Australia. Social movements covered include a history of ‘queer’ activism, how Australian women engaged in Cold War politics, and the changing nature of work. Praktikos articles provide teachers with a guide to teaching the Holocaust, how to counter negative stereotypes about migrant communities, how to use protest music in your classroom, and a guide to resources you can use when choosing a Modern History proxy war or conflict.
