Degler, W.; Juen, A.; Klinger, K.; Markert, M. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020

Beadie, Nancy – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
The economic and environmental significance of school land policy in the United States has yet to be imagined, let alone systematically studied, by scholars.

Albisetti, James C. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
The last quarter of the nineteenth century witnessed a new but rapidly spreading perspective on the link between education and nature: middle-class philanthropists joining together to provide summer vacations in the countryside for poor, sickly, urban children.

Sijpenhof, Maria Luce – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
Scholars have observed a re-emergence of biological racism in the Netherlands. I question whether this form of racism is also making a comeback in Dutch secondary schooling, by drawing on critical race theory and Bonilla-Silva's frames of colour-blind racism. Data for this study were gathered through an analysis of 200 history textbooks…

Yu, Shujuan; Sun, Yi – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020

However, the rich thought on nature education in Pre-Qin Taoism in China was little-known in Western academia.
