Zhou, Ying – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
The nature of the New Policies in China (1901-1911) has been hotly debated for decades. While scholars doubt the sincerity of the Qing government in their pursuit of constitutional reform, there is a general agreement on the high quality of their educational reform. Some even consider their educational innovations as "genuine reform" but…

Kaiser, Tim; Miethe, Ingrid; Piepiorka, Alexandra; Kriele, Tobias – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
Searching for development paths and suitable educational policies, postcolonial governments often turned to the experiences of other countries and sought to adapt these to their own contexts. Research on such processes has largely neglected the resulting entanglements between postcolonial and European socialist countries, and between different…

Pruneri, Fabio – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
The term "toilet" conveys different meanings; it may be seen as an isolated place or a public service, a secluded and dirty area or a symbol of civilisation and progress. In the film "The Phantom of Liberty" (1974), Luis Buñuel presented a formally dressed social group gathering over a meal in toilets around a table, with the…

Cardenas-Herrera, John Jairo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
This article studies the invention of the classroom in a time of crisis -- the one experienced after the independence war and in the framework of the Republic of Colombia building process (1819-1830). At that time, the expectations about the future were greater than the experiences about the past and there was confidence about the role of…

Bradbury, Natalie – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
This paper focuses on "Pictures for Schools," an art patronage scheme established in postwar Britain by the artist and educationalist Nan Youngman (1906-1995) to sell affordable works of art to educational establishments.

Delivered as one of the keynote addresses at the International Standing Committee on the History of Education (ISCHE) Conference held in Porto in July 2019, this paper offers an example of a hitherto overlooked embodied space and place in the history of education. Taking the simple pocket found in children's clothing as a significant, if hidden,…

Kelly, Frances – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
Universities exert effort and expense in designing buildings to fit the current ontology and meet the perceived needs of society. This is not new -- historically, entire campuses were designed to manifest pedagogical and social ideals, like the "academical village" (Coulson, Roberts and Taylor, 2015) of Thomas Jefferson's imagination.…

Jan Ligthart and Hindericus Scheepstra collaborated closely with the painter Cornelis Jetses who provided the illustrations. The series would become classics in both text and image. In this article the symbolic educational…

Southwell, Myriam – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
The 1920s decade was extremely rich in terms of processes and problems of singular relevance and was also a prolific decade in terms of debates and generation of new proposals. The social climate of the postwar period put into crisis the most rationalist precepts installed by nineteenth-century liberalism and favoured the inclusion of forms of…

Silva Rabelo, Rafaela – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
In 1943, a report sent to the executive board of the New Education Fellowship (NEF) informed the board that, during a trip to South America in 1942, Carleton Washburne had formed sections in Colombia, Ecuador, Chile, Paraguay, and Brazil on the NEF's behalf. In some publications, Washburne mentions that it was a study trip commissioned by the US…

From the independence of Ghana in 1957 to the ouster of the socialist President Kwame Nkrumah in 1966 more than 600 Ghanaians studied at universities and professional-technical schools in the Soviet Union.

Tarradellas, Anton – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
At the time of African independence, the concept of higher education for development took hold in the programmes of the new African governments and in the aid projects of the former colonial powers, the United States, the USSR, and international organisations. All agreed on the need to place higher education at the service of Africa's development…

Marak, Andrae – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
After the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), the Mexican government sought to establish a series of frontier schools along the United States-Mexico border in an attempt to keep what officials believed were its most economically valuable citizens from migrating to the United States in search of improved economic and educational opportunities. This…
