Kleinau, Elke; Riettiens, Lilli – History of Education, 2020
German colonialism has long been treated as a sort of footnote in the epoch of the Empire due to its relatively short time span.

This article deals with…

Mayer, Christine – History of Education, 2020

Hof, Barbara – History of Education, 2018
After the Sputnik shock of 1957, the United States initiated education reform, based in part on the hope that technology could facilitate efficient school learning.

Eigenmann, Philipp; Geiss, Michael – History of Education, 2016
In the history of vocational education and training, apprentices seldom feature as actors. They are also rarely mentioned among those affected by economic conditions and political measures.

Gärtner, Niko – History of Education, 2014
Late nineteenth-century German-English rivalry changed attitudes in Hamburg. Previously, the once fiercely independent city and its burgeoning mercantile middle class had developed an Anglophilia that justified Hamburg being labelled a "London suburb" and "the most British town on the Continent". The affinity for all things…

Kavanagh, Matthew – History of Education, 2014
The Popular Front line made the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) a more hospitable place for "brain workers." The emphasis the line placed on mass ideological and cultural struggle against fascism meant that they became important allies to be won for the working class. As the principal transmitters of ideology and culture to the…
