The purpose of this paper is to discuss and clarify the need, in the Swedish context, for a shift of perspective within the field of research. A shift, that is, from earlier studies which focused primarily on the challenges and problems that history teaching encounters in a multicultural society, to a project that examines examples of how history teachers deal with such challenges and work with students' identity in their multicultural teaching.
