Degler, W.; Juen, A.; Klinger, K.; Markert, M. – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020

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.…

Momanu, Mariana; Popa, Nicoleta Laura; Samoila, Magda-Elena – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
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…

van Gijlswijk, Dick – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2016
The declining economy of the Dutch Republic obliged city governments in the eighteenth century to take measures to undo the effects of the social deterioration. They therefore founded schools for the poor and sometimes gave full financial support. After 1795, the Batavian Revolution proclaimed that primary education was a state affair, but after a…

Räisänen, Mirka – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2014
Finnish school teachers are unlike their colleagues in many countries, for their ethos and skills have traditionally formed the basis for a profession which has been very loyal to the state and to the changing educational ideologies of the government. Critical historical periods of wars and social revolutions have, however, produced--to a small…
