Informations and abstract

Keywords: Audiovisuals; History Teaching; Sources; Contemporary History; University.

The paper discloses the results of a survey carried out through questionnaires and interviews with 201 professors of Contemporary History within Italian Universities. The aim of the survey was to highlight the variety of the educational uses of audiovisuals in order to understand the emphasis given to audiovisual sources in current historical research as well as the ways history teachers manage these sources and train students to deconstruct them. The allocation within BA, MA programs or seminars, the adequacy of classrooms, the skills and interests of teachers and students are some of the factors taken into account for drawing an essential map of audiovisual uses in the Italian academic context, weighed down by a late critical elaboration on the subject.
