Información general

Este proyecto se concretó en 2016 durante un seminario dedicado a la presencia de animales en el frente. Presentado a una audiencia de 500 estudiantes de secundaria y profesores donde el tema fue recibido con entusiasmo. Los estudiantes experimentaron por primera vez un punto de vista diferente en los estudios de la Primera Guerra Mundial, mientras que los maestros expresaron mucho interés en contar con más herramientas a su disposición para actualizar su enfoque de enseñanza de la historia.

"Los animales en la Gran Guerra" respondería a las necesidades tanto de los docentes como de los estudiantes, proporcionando las primeras referencias actualizadas para el desarrollo de las clases en el aula y el segundo con apoyo metodológico para llevar a cabo el trabajo individual en el hogar. Mirar la Primera Guerra Mundial desde el punto de vista de los animales que participaron en la guerra, gracias también a la diferente sensibilidad que nos permite considerarlos no más como simples mercancías, ofrece algunas ventajas educativas innegables:

  1. emancipar la Gran Guerra de la narrativa de libros de texto, a menudo centrada exclusivamente en los frentes europeos y las derrotas o victorias de naciones individuales;

  2. favorecer la formación interdisciplinar al mezclar distintas áreas geográficas, lingüísticas y disciplinarios porque se anima a los profesores de diferentes disciplinas (historia, literatura y lingüística) a trabajar juntos para desarrollar cursos multidisciplinarios para sus clases;

  3. Proporcionar los medios para desplazar el enfoque a las subjetividades de las temåticas fomentando una ampliación de los horizontes, no sólo del conocimiento de un solo hecho histórico, sino también de una mirada más amplia a los hechos que nos rodean.

Descripción del proyecto. Características, fortalezas y diferenciales.

"Gli animali nella Grande Guerra"/"Animals in the Great War" will be a bilingual eBook in Italian and English, and available for free download from the Se website.
The eBook will consist of an introductory section dedicated to the general theme and the study tools required for a multidisciplinary teaching approach; and a methodology section dedicated to specific topics such as “the presence of dogs in the war medical service”, “the use of cats in gas detection”, “the employment of pigeons in espionage operations”.
Main sources and suggestions on searching sources on the Web will be provided in the methodology section. A central role will be reserved for the free resources already catalogued in the “Europeana 1914-1918” database, especially photographic resources, which have an immediate impact in attracting students’ attention and could be easily used in developing lessons and aiding individual study. In addition, certain consideration will be given to the wide range of materials listed in “Europeana 1914-1918” although they are not available free of charge.

Motivación y a quién va dirigido el proyecto

The idea for this project took shape in 2016 during a seminar dedicated to the presence of animals at the front. Presented to an audience of 500 secondary school students and teachers, the topic was enthusiastically received. Students experienced for the first time a different point of view in First World War studies, while teachers expressed much interest in having more tools at their disposal to refresh their approach history teaching. The standpoint of the animals that took part in the war will be a useful tool to investigate the war and study its history. It will offer some undeniable educational advantages, especially because it will focus on subaltern subjectivities, encouraging a broadening of horizons, not only of the knowledge of a single historical event, but also in looking more widely at the facts that surround us

Objetivos de la campaña de crowdfunding

In order to produce this eBook, the calculated minimum budget ranges from €7,500.00 up to a maximum of € 10,000.,00.
€ 7,500.00 will cover the cost of the professional work required:

  • € 3,000.00 researcher,
  • € 2,500.00 translator,
  • € 2,000.00 copy-editor.
    The layout will be created using the open-source platform Booktype, so extra budgetary resources will not be required.
    Instead, a budget of € 10,000.00, will enable the annual publication for three years (2019, 2020, 2021) of new specific topics as updates to the first edition of the eBook. These will also be available for free download from the association’s website.
