Marco Ambrosi De la Cadena – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2024
Colonization has traditionally been studied as a monological and definitive period. This article seeks to problematize its analysis by means of the so-called 'philosophy of desire' and 'rhizomatic thinking', enriching them, in methodological terms, by the Actor-Network-Theory. In this vein, an alternative explanation of the colonial regime is…

Filippo Sani – Hungarian Educational Research Journal, 2024
In light of the debates on the "feminisation of religion" that have animated historiography, during the Restoration one can distinguish two educational strategies towards the education of women.

Mac Gearailt, Colm – Irish Educational Studies, 2023
This article looks at the Intermediate Certificate examination on Irish history between 1926 and 1968. An investigation on how the official syllabus was examined is of equal merit, if not more important than the syllabus itself, being used as the official marker of a pupil's aptitude and awareness of Irish history. Furthermore, examination papers…

Pavel Zgaga – Center for Educational Policy Studies Journal, 2023
This article examines the concept of academic autonomy within the "Yugoslav model" of higher education as a peripheral system characterised by an eclectic mix of elements from different systems, resulting in mutations with unique features during its development. The hitherto under-researched history of this higher education model has by…

Patricia Bonnin-Arias; Juan Arturo Rubio Arostegui; Ana Colomer-Sánchez – Research in Dance Education, 2023
Academic ballet is one of the iconic manifestations of High Culture. In Nineteenth-century Spain, it failed to take root in the form of stable companies, schools, and venues. There were various social, political, and cultural reasons for this, even though conditions at the time seemed propitious. Those reasons and conditions form the subject of…
