MARIO CARRETERO (COORDINATOR)
I am a Professor at the Faculty of Psychology at UAM and a Researcher at FLACSO (Argentina). I received a Guggenheim Fellowship to study the relationship between history teaching and national identity in Latin America. I have been Visiting Scholar at the Rockefeller Center at Harvard University and at the Stanford Humanities Centre, and have promoted interdisciplinary studies on historical culture and education. My publications (in English and Spanish) have been translated into French, Portuguese and Basque.
Mikel Asensio Brouard
I teach Psychology of Thought, Informal Learning and Psychology of Art in the Faculty of Psychology at UAM. I also teach Museology at the Universities of Barcelona and Huesca. I do research in Museums and Heritage from the users' point of view, designing exhibitions and museums, public and educational programmes, as well as inclusive projects and audience studies.
I am a Researcher at the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (National Council for Scientific and Technical Research - CONICET) in Argentina, working at FLACSO-Argentina. I am also a Professor at the University of Buenos Aires. My interests focus on the development of moral judgment and the understanding of the social world. I am specifically interested in the relationships between moral judgements about the past and the relationships between different social groups today. I think this is central to democratic coexistence and to the development of future citizens.
Ignacio Brescó de Luna
I am a Doctoral Assistant at the Faculty of Psychology at the UAM and External Researcher at Aalborg University (Denmark) where I am a member of the Niels Bohr Centre for Cultural Psychology and the Culture of Grief Centre. My interests are related to collective memory, history and national identity and I have recently focused on the role of memorials in articulating collective mourning and remembering the past.
José Antonio Castorina
I am a Consultant Professor at the University of Buenos Aires and Principal Researcher at Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (National Council for Scientific and Technical Research - CONICET), Argentina, and Director of the Master's Degree in Teacher Training at the National Pedagogical University. My interests are focused on the processes of knowledge construction, both at epistemological, educational and psychological levels. I believe that it is necessary for researchers to reflect on the values and historical-political tensions that run through and constitute our day-to-day work.

César López Rodríguez
I am an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Psychology at the UAM. My interests focus on the intersection between History, Collective Memory and Psychology, both in formal and informal educational contexts. I consider it very relevant to investigate narratives as cultural tools for thinking about the past and constructing identities.
I am a Lecturer at the National University of La Plata and a Researcher at FLACSO (Argentina). I research how students understand the transformations that occurred in the national territory as a product of historical processes. I believe that an interdisciplinary dialogue between cultural psychology, research on history teaching, and critical cartography is necessary to address this issue.
I am a Researcher at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia and Visiting Scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). Understanding the intersections between historical narratives and citizen discourses to explain social reality has been the driving force of my work. I have recently delved into the study of public history and civic commemoration and their impact on young people’s learning in different countries through virtual history teaching modules.
María Rodríguez Moneo
I am a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Psychology at UAM. I have been Director of the CNIIE (Ministry of Education - Spain) and of the IUCE of UAM. I have done research on conceptual change in history, the development of narratives, and historical thinking. I believe that now more than ever the acquisition of historical knowledge, that takes place in formal and informal contexts, is essential not only for understanding the past, but also for interpreting and acting in the present.
Floor Van Alphen
I am an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Psychology at UAM. I research how young people make the past their own, through the reproduction, resistance, and transformation of dominant narratives, which involve their identities. I am interested in individual narratives and those of discussion groups or pairs. I study both the content of narratives about the past and the way they are told. I believe that collective memory is interactive and is also transmitted in gestures and non-verbal expressions.
María Cantabrana Carassou
I am a CONICET (National Council for Scientific and Technical Research) Doctoral Fellow at FLACSO, Argentina. I have a PhD in Education, a BA in History and a MA in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies. I am interested in how different ways of representing the past intervene in our approach to history. In my doctoral project I explore the impact of dialogical representations in the approach to conflictive pasts.
I am an Educational Psychologist and Early-Stage Researcher, currently involved in several teams at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). After accumulating experience in applied fields of education, I have found that research on the teaching and learning of history is the best way to shed light on the ways to improve future societies in a competent, identitarian and humanitarian way.
I have a degree in Psychology (UBA) and teach Psychology and Genetic Epistemology at Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA). I do research in the area of educational psychology and I am a Fellow of this group. I also collaborate in UBACYT research projects directed by J. A. Castorina and A. Barreiro.
María Gutiérrez Cano
I am an Educational Psychologist and Fellow (INVESTIGO Programme of the AEI) of this group. I am interested in how historical thinking develops in formal and informal contexts, especially through ICTs and their new possibilities, as well as in understanding how national identities influence the construction of historical narratives. I believe that learning history is important to fully exercise rights and duties, and to better understand the world.
