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…

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. Highlighting the use of works of art as a pedagogical tool, "Pictures for Schools" is contextualised within…

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…

Bentrovato, Denise; Van Nieuwenhuyse, Karel – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
Over half a century since the last wave of political decolonisation, the handling of "dark" colonial histories remains topical. Influenced by the postcolonial turn, this study aims to examine, from a novel historical and comparative perspective, evolving textbook representations of Belgian colonialism and its legacy in Belgian and…

Amsing, Hilda T. A.; Dekker, Jeroen J. H. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
Within the polarised political culture of the 1970s, in which political differences were emphasised instead of being played down, Dutch right-wing politicians frequently accused left-wing politicians and educators of indoctrination in educational settings. In this period of economic stagnation and an ongoing Cold War, peace education -- which was…

Wright, Susannah – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
The League of Nations Union (LNU) was one among the many organisations, in different countries, that promoted internationalist education among the young in the interwar years. But it was a particularly large and prominent one and appealed to a wide cross-section of teachers and pupils in English schools. LNU junior branches were established in…

Mota, Teresa Salomé – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
For some time now, images in science have been an object of study in the history of science. The multiple roles that images play in scientific practice have been recognised and discussed. However, little attention has been given to science related images in educational contexts. The case of geology is all the more relevant because it is considered…

Depaepe, Marc – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
Research into the history of colonial education in Congo has shown that, for a long time, it was dominated by the idea of gradual development of the masses. Here, the problem of selecting an intellectual elite hardly arose. It was only in the 1950s that a growing number of voices began to clamour for the Congolese to be permitted to study in…

Huang, Hsuan-Yi; Chen, Hsiao-Lan – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
History curriculum and textbooks, as a key mechanism of constructing collective memory, play a critical role in shaping national, social, and cultural imaginations of the young. This paper analyses history textbooks in Taiwan during the martial law period (1950-1987) to explore narratives about Taiwan and examines the ways in which those…

Nieminen, Marjo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
This paper focuses on teachers' written memories of Finland's comprehensive school reform in the 1970s and examines teachers' reminiscences of this major change, when elementary (primary) schools and lower secondary (grammar) schools were transformed into comprehensive schools, thereby guaranteeing nine-year basic education with a unified…

Hulstaert, Karen – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
French has played a central role in Congolese education since its independence in 1960. Its dominant position at the postcolonial school is subject to controversy on the national and international level. However, the way that pupils themselves have experienced the role of French at school has not been researched so far. This paper investigates the…

Whitehead, Kay – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
This article focuses on the work of three British Women Education Officers (WEOs) in Nigeria as the colony was preparing for independence. Well-qualified and progressive women teachers, Kathleen Player, Evelyn Clark (née Hyde), and Mary Hargrave (née Robinson), were appointed as WEOs in 1945, 1949, and 1950 respectively. I argue that the three…
