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…

This paper looks at the educational project of Belgium's acclaimed socialist and modernist architect Renaat Braem (1910-2001).

Goossens, Cedric; Van Gorp, Angelo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
Since the 1970s, many western welfare states have been subject both to increased migration and to a renewed interest in progressive education. The present article addresses the question of whether these two phenomena are related and how changing notions of the welfare state shape and are shaped by this relationship. To answer the question, we…

This keynote consists of two parts. The first part offers some general observations from the past related to the power (and eventual powerlessness) of education. The aim is to create a framework with which the specific case, discussed in the second part, must be interpreted. Furthermore, it is emphasised that almost every pedagogical intervention…

Vangrunderbeek, Hans; Delheye, Pascal – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
During the 1960s and 1970s, "traditional" secondary educational systems in various Western European countries made way for comprehensive education curricula. In contrast to the reforms within the "intellectual" subjects, the field of physical education (PE) remained largely underexposed in research. This study focuses on PE…

Vanderstraeten, Raf – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
In Europe, the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are characterised not only by processes of secularisation, but also by religious reactions to the perceived secularisation of society. In the Catholic Church, the rise of active congregations constitutes a prominent part of this reaction. With their work "in the world", the members of the…

Van Ruyskensvelde, Sarah – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
Power over education and the upcoming generations has always been an important instrument in shaping religious and secular values. As a consequence, control over schools, pupils and teachers was, particularly in periods of war, an important means for bringing about acceptance of the new regime. The aim of this paper is to discuss priest-teachers'…
