Macdonald, Catriona M. M. – History of Education, 2009
Citizenship was not a straightforward concern for Scottish university students between 1884 and 1948 and tended to express itself in multiple and often competing allegiances. Despite students being empowered to elect a Rector, and their role in university governance being accorded statutory recognition through the Students' Representative…

Mattingly, Paul; Jarausch, Konrad; Craig, John; Kett, Joseph; Turner, James – History of Education, 2008
This 2005 conference dialog does not attempt to review the formidable "A History of the University in Europe, 1800-1945," edited by Walter Reggi.

Muckle, James – History of Education, 2008
The outbreak of the First World War and the emergence of Russia as Britain's "glorious ally" swiftly changed public attitudes in Britain, which had been largely, but not entirely, hostile to Russia.

Smith, David – History of Education, 2008
The building of the English new universities during the 1960s symbolized the liberating possibilities of higher education. New institutions for a new age, their campuses were arguably part of a wider "utopianist" movement for community that sought to challenge academic elitism and conservatism. This paper considers the era of university…

Gasparini, Fay; Vick, Malcolm – History of Education, 2008
Place is material, conceptual and symbolic. Physically, the Library at Townsville College of Advanced Education was central, visible and distinctive. Internally, it provided a dramatically different environment from other college buildings. It functioned as the (metaphorical) "hub" of the external studies programme and, when the college…

At the present day, in 68 countries worldwide, the…

The article discusses contributions towards female higher education made by a group of women whose views on gender roles were conservative, rather than feminist or suffragist. Four women's conservative ideals and interconnected work for women's education are reviewed in the context of late Victorian Oxford. This study is prefaced by a discussion…

Harford, Judith – History of Education, 2005
The movement for the higher education of women in Ireland in the nineteenth century has traditionally been viewed as a Protestant initiative. Scholarship suggests that the Irish campaign developed along the same lines as the English movement, gaining from and growing out of the English advances. Leading Protestant schools for girls have been…

Kraft, Alison – History of Education, 2004
What obstructions stand in the way of our universities in their endeavours to develop higher courses in Veterinary medicine cannot be realised by Parliament and the general public. These obstructions are due to the continued existence of regulations which should have been swept away long ago, and, I must add, to the most regrettable inertia of the…

Brian Simon's life work brought together a set of themes that cross the Atlantic in interesting ways: race and class, contests over education's aims and structures, equity and equality as differential measures of social justice, and the role of history in illuminating education's place in forming national identity and fostering change. The…
