Myers, Kevin; Ramsey, Paul J.; Proctor, Helen – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
National borders and school boundaries are integral components of the history of education. Configured as sites of governance and regulation, as spaces of continuity and order, they also introduced a sedentary bias into much historical research.

Esteves, Olivier – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
The history of forced dispersal of immigrant children in England, which affected mostly non-Anglophone Asian pupils in areas such as Southall (West London) and Bradford (West Yorkshire) in the 1960s and 1970s has only very recently elicited the interest of historians.

Whitehead, Kay – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
This article focuses on the work of three British Women Education Officers (WEOs) in Nigeria as the colony was preparing for independence. Well-qualified and progressive women teachers, Kathleen Player, Evelyn Clark (née Hyde), and Mary Hargrave (née Robinson), were appointed as WEOs in 1945, 1949, and 1950 respectively. I argue that the three…

Götz, Georg – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
This paper focuses on the development of history teaching in West Germany from the 1970s onwards. When in the early 1970s the relevance of history -- both as an academic discipline and as a school subject -- was challenged, this led to fierce debates as a multitude of new concepts were being developed. One of these was Annette Kuhn's revolutionary…

Friedman, Michael – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018

Harford, Judith – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
Examining the historiography of women's education, the issue which dominates is understandably that of access. Access, or lack thereof, is a transnational construct which forms an over-arching framework through which the issue of historical gender equality in higher education can be interpreted and interrogated. Each of the seminal texts which…

This article starts from "histoire croisée" to develop a genuinely relational analysis of performances of health education in the context of open-air schools. It interrogates, through places, people, and things conceived of as being performatively entangled, the notion of an internationalisation of school hygiene. These places, people,…

Parlevliet, Sanne – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
Historical fiction is a powerful way of transmitting national history to later generations. It emerged in the nineteenth century as a means of building identity and fostering solidarity. However, in the 1960s and 1970s, former representations of history were deconstructed. Instead of glorifying the nation, social evils were exposed. As a…
