Wils, Kaat; Verschaffel, Tom – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012

Mayer, Christine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012

Ferrer, Alejandro Tiana – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2011
The history of popular education is a long-standing field of research.

But, using the same label, quite different lines of research have been developed. They correspond to different ideas about…

May, Josephine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2010
The 1920s was an ambivalent decade in Australia: on the one hand Australians were still reeling from the disastrous effects of the Great War and on the other they were witnessing unprecedented and exciting technological and social changes brought about by modernity. One of the most important modern technologies was the cinema, which Australians…

Juul, Ida – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2008
Taking the point of departure in three different narratives concerning training as a cabinet maker, the article shows how the choice of a particular education is ascribed different significance, depending on the period and the individual's social background. In order to grasp the intersection between factors connected to the concepts of generation…

Vick, Malcolm – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2007
Australian historiography has often portrayed Australian education as dependent and isolated. Starting from Foucault's notion of power as capillary, this paper traces two ways in which Australian teacher training in the first half of the twentieth century was tied into international networks. It documents some conspicuous links between key…

Bakker, Nelleke – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2006
In the Netherlands, as in the United States, the introduction of the concept of "mental health" in education is closely related to the development of a network of child guidance clinics. The first of these was established in Amsterdam in 1928. However, a substantial movement to actively promote mental health did not come into existence…
