Yazici, Fatih; Yildirim, Tercan – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
Nation-states needed various ideological apparatuses when they wanted to eliminate traditional loyalties to the pre-modern era and establish a new superordinate identity.

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"? Therefore, we addressed the reality of the Soviet school using two research questions: (1) What teacher image was cultivated by Soviet propaganda, and what did the average teacher actually…

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.

Beauvais, Clémentine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This article pays attention to the regional embeddedness of early research on giftedness, looking principally at the works of Lewis Terman and his peers, between the 1910s and 1930s. The rhetoric, ideology, and aesthetics of giftedness in those early works were, I argue, stamped by the context and imaginary of Progressive-Era California and shaped…

Rury, John L.; Darby, Derrick – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
This paper examines the impact of war on African-American education. This question is considered in three different periods: the eras of the American Revolution, the Civil War and the Second World War.

Pruneri, Fabio – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
In 1945, Italian society was in crisis. Twenty years of fascism and the aerial bombing and military offensives of the Second World War had left the civilian population suffering and the nation in need of reinvention. In this difficult context, certain anti-fascist intellectuals devised the interesting pedagogical experiment of the 11 Convitti…

Collelldemont, Eulàlia – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
When studying any aspect of the lives of children during the Spanish Civil War, or an institution or educational model of that time, it becomes clear that many factors come into play, none of which can be considered in isolation. Children's lives are inextricably bound up with the context in which they unfold and while academic research strives…

Smaller, Harry – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2015
A number of education researchers, both in Europe and in North America, have claimed that classroom teachers in state schooling systems have suffered from a process of "de-professionalisation" and/or "de-skilling" over recent decades. This paper argues that these claims are problematic, on at least two grounds. First, for…

Ramsey, Paul J. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
This article examines the ways in which the very idea of teacher education in the United States was transplanted from foreign lands. Teacher education, particularly normal school training, was based on a model imported from despotic Prussia, a model that was popularised by French and American visitors to the northeastern German land. Although…
