Parlevliet, Sanne – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
Historical fiction is a powerful way of transmitting national history to later generations. It emerged in the nineteenth century as a means of building identity and fostering solidarity. However, in the 1960s and 1970s, former representations of history were deconstructed. Instead of glorifying the nation, social evils were exposed. As a…

Papakosta, Konstantina – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
The reality of Greek education presents a dissension in relation to the global trends regarding the existence and use of a single textbook per school subject. This reality also influences the orientation of education research. Thus, the international trend to study how textbooks affect the uptake of knowledge by the student, which is followed by…

Dove, Jane – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
Children in Georgian and Victorian times were expected to be familiar with the geography of England and Wales. This study analyses some of the resources then available which taught children this information. John Aikin's "England Delineated" is evaluated as a geographical text and then compared with less formal games and puzzles, then on…

Griffith, Jane – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
Indian residential schools lasted in Canada for nearly 150 years, with the last one closing in 1996. Canada's recently concluded Truth and Reconciliation Commission has confirmed what Indigenous families have said all along: many Indigenous children endured abuse, prolonged separation between parent and child, and intergenerational legacies.…

van der Vlies, Tina – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article aims to contribute to the field of textbook research by exploring a new approach in textbook analysis. Inspired by Michael Rothberg's concept of multidirectional memory, this article examines multidirectional narratives in history textbooks: narratives that combine different histories, places and times in a productive way. They…

Bakker, Nelleke – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
This paper discusses the role brain disease has played in the discourse and practices of child scientists involved in the study of learning disabilities and behavioural disorders from the 1950s up to the mid-1980s, particularly in the Netherlands as part of a developing international scientific community. In the pre-ADHD era, when child sciences…

Macnab, Natasha – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
Radical political activism in the 1970s and 1980s had a huge impact on documentary photography in Britain. Community organisations and photography collectives emerged and endeavoured to democratise the arts for those who would not otherwise have come into contact with them. Community photography used the technology to break down the barriers…

Verstraete, Pieter; Söderfeldt, Yva – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
To date, the historical entanglement of disability and happiness has not been considered an object worth of historical inquiry. Nor has the intersection of disability and emotions been used as a lens to examine the history of disability. Our paper aims at filling this academic void by analysing a wide range of philosophical, anthropological,…

Flamez, E.; Vanobbergen, B. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
This research explores political-educational debates regarding the concept of women's emancipation in women and family programmes on Belgian television between 1954 and 1975. From the very beginning, the women's episodes were regarded as explicitly educational. The episodes were created to increase women's participation by means of their…

Macnab, Natasha; Grosvenor, Ian; Myers, Kevin – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2013
Over the past two decades there has been a growing interest in the exploration of "transnational history". This work has focused in general on understanding the "movement, ebb and circulation" of ideas across borders and in particular on the introduction, transmission, reception and appropriation of ideas through the process of…

Bruter, Annie – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012
Were teachers, of the early modern era not longing for the present? Most colleges of that time did not offer a history course. Still, they did teach a lot about the past since the teaching consisted in the reading of the works of ancient writers. This is because ancient science and literature were considered much more advanced than the science and…

Seixas, Peter – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012
It is possible to long for the past: we "long" for something that once was present but is no longer--nostalgia. We "hope" for something that has never been present but might be in the future--dreams: this is the core of progress in the modernist project. What can "longing for the present" mean? We desire a situation that we already have? We long…

Frijhoff, Willem – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012
The "discovery of childhood" is a tricky notion because childhood is as much a fact of a biological and psychological nature as a cultural notion that through the centuries has been the object of changing perceptions, definitions, and images. Children barely speak in history; virtually everything we know about them is mediated by adults. Then how…

Grever, Maria; de Bruijn, Pieter; van Boxtel, Carla – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012
The current heritage fascination signals the omnipresence of the Present. Recently it has spawned a distinct type of teaching and learning: "heritage education". In this article we argue that, despite its presentist connotations, heritage education offers interesting opportunities for understanding the foreignness of the past, a…

Heinze, Carsten – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2012
Recent studies on primers from the time of the Third Reich in Germany show surprisingly little evidence of ideologisation. In comparison with other textbooks, national socialist contents were found to be present to a very limited degree. Rather than presenting the ideology, the books encouraged identification of the children with the presented…
