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.

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…

Karcher, Nicola – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
During the Nazi occupation of Norway from 1940 to 1945, Norwegian society was exposed to comprehensive Nazification measures. Considered racially equal, it was intended that the "Germanic" Norwegians would be transformed into a National Socialist people's community.

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…

Indelicato, Maria Elena; Pražic, Ivana – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
In this article, we develop a genealogy of international education studies' tenets of culture shock and skills deficit. To trace their emergence, we map the discursive shifts which underpinned cultural anthropology's involvement in the administration of US colonial, domestic, and international affairs respectively in the early 1900s and 1950s.…

Indelicato, Maria Elena; Pražic, Ivana – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
In this article, we delve into the characterisation of international students as "Confucian Heritage" learners. To appreciate the implications of such iterative interpellation, we develop a genealogy of Sinology, which is here approached as the discursive effect of a colonial epistemic division of the world into free and democratic West…

From the mid-nineteenth to the…

Starting from the state of conceptual diversity, semantic ambiguity, and poor connection of family life education practices to current policies and theoretical models in Romania, our study aims at understanding the underlying meanings of these issues by recourse to the history of approaches in the field. To this purpose, we carried out a…
