Umeå Research Centre for Social Studies Didactics (UmSOD)

Research group The Umeå Research Centre for Social Studies Didactics brings together didactic research in civics, geography, religious studies and history.

This research environment consists of a network of scholars at both the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Social Sciences. The environment is being supported by Umeå School of Education during the period 2016–2019 with a number of research appointments and funding for visiting professors. The Centre works to develop research with both short-term and long-term perspectives, and arrange joint seminars and visits by international researchers. The research concerns social studies education in preschool, compulsory school and/or upper secondary school, and comparative perspectives are encouraged.
