This special issue is a capstone of our project, History and Moral Encounters: Exploring heoretical and empirical intersections of historical and moral consciousness from a history didaktik perspective. The project, funded by the Swedish Research Council from 2018-2021 aimed to increase knowledge and understanding about intersections of historical consciousness and moral consciousness to develop new theoretical tools for history teaching that can support education for democratic citizenship. Modern history teaching is expected to contribute to developing students’ critical thinking and commitment to democratic values and human rights; yet there was little research on how historical interconnections are interpreted by students and  linked to their moral consciousness when the project began.
