Historiography of the Greek Education: Creation, Development, Influences, Perspectives (1824-2006)
Bouzakis, Sifis
Educational Research and Reviews, v4 n12 p596-601 Dec 2009
In this article, the presentation as well as the interpretation (in a historical framework) of the creation and development of the historiography of the Greek education from the foundation of the Modern Greek State to date was attempted. During the first decades after the liberation of Greece from the Turks, this historiography served the national ideology, emphasizing on methodological works. From the very beginning of the 20th century until 1974 (the period of the fall of the dictatorship excluded), historiography focused on event recording and undertook an educative role through a number of works which recorded events in a plenary, linear fashion. Over the last 35 years, historiography was obviously influenced by foreign trends, and it developed into new history, specifically, the interpretative history. This last change appeared in numerous works which, in addition to the description of events, attempted also to interpret them by correlating education with both the socio-political and the ideological-political conditions of the period. These works are influenced by the international trends in historiography such as the School of Annales, the Marxistic theories, the theories of reproduction, of dependence, etc. (Contains 14 footnotes.)
