Diana MacDougall

My name is Diana McDougall and I’m head of History at Larne High School in County Antrim in Northern Ireland. I’m absolutely delighted to be involved with Parallel Histories, and in particular to work out how to best teach our shared past and our shared future in this centenary of the Partition of Ireland. In Larne High School we teach the legacy of Partition to our Year 10 students, and we also study Northern Ireland and her neighbours 1969 to 1998 in Year 12 as we follow the CCEA specification for GCSE. At A level, as part of our A2 unit we study the Partition of Ireland, so being involved with Parallel Histories will give us an incredible opportunity to debate the issues surrounding Partition, to look at how we have to share the past, but most importantly how we have to share the future. I’m really excited to be involved and my students are really excited as well, and I’m really looking forward to all the opportunities that being involved with Parallel Histories will provide for me and my students here in Larne High School.
