Hoegaerts, Josephine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
At the heart of the nineteenth-century educational soundscape lies a paradox. Whilst "modern" classrooms generally strived for orderly silence, the goal of its educational practices was the production of competent "citizens". Middle-class boys in particular were expected to acquire a voice fit for business, the professions, or…

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. Indeed, research has shown that a specific "war pedagogy" made an aggressive propaganda possible in the classroom. This research usually emphasises the enthusiasm for war…

Greveling, Linda; Amsing, Hilda T. A.; Dekker, Jeroen J. H. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
In the Netherlands, crossing borders to study comprehensive schools was an important strategy in the 1970s, a decisive period for the start and the end of the innovation. According to policy-borrowing theory, actors that engage in debating educational issues are framing foreign examples of comprehensive schooling to convince their audiences.…

Rockwell, Elsie; Vera, Eugenia Roldan – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
ISCHE 33 was convened in San Luis Potosi to re-examine a relationship--that between society, education and the state--that had been largely taken for granted in official histories of education of modern nations. This theme was inspired by the bicentenary celebrations of the relatively early nineteenth-century movements (from 1804 to 1824) that…
