Ogren, Christine A. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
Histories of teachers' experiences in the United States between the 1880s and the 1930s argue that teaching restrained and often debilitated teachers' bodies. The emerging theory of constraint is limited, however, because the historiography of American teachers focuses for the most part only on the months when school was in session. This…

Kestere, Iveta; Kalke, Baiba – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
The ideal of the Soviet teacher can be revealed in Soviet mass media, but historians are challenged by the question "what was the actual reality"?

Scholz, Joachim; Berdelmann, Kathrin – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
The outbreak of the First World War had a powerful impact on German schools. Undoubtedly, schools were institutions of socialisation that did offer support to the war.

Collelldemont, Eulàlia – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014

Graphic verisimilitude is not only to be found in these images; it…
