Zhou, Ying – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
The nature of the New Policies in China (1901-1911) has been hotly debated for decades.

Some even consider their educational innovations as "genuine reform" but…

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…

Giudici, Anja; Ruoss, Thomas – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2020
Despite its image as an antifascist stronghold, interwar-Switzerland hosted several fascist movements. So far, research has not remarked upon the extraordinarily strong involvement of educators in these groups. Exploiting Switzerland's particular situation in this period, this paper aims to shed new light on the relationship between authoritarian…

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. With the establishment of the so-called new order on 25 September 1940,…

Caruso, Marcelo – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
Calligraphic culture in education had a long tradition in the Hispanic World. This entailed the cultivation of specific forms of script to the detriment of others. Since the late eighteenth century, discussions about the shape of letters and the differences between different alphabets were associated with national characters. The "letra…

Veiga, Cynthia – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
In this article, I discuss the paradoxes of the body's civilising processes in dialogue with Norbert Elias's sociological theory. As a premise, I contend that modernity's civilising rationality has taken the body, the senses, and emotions in such a fragmented manner that we sometimes lose sight of the dimension that body and person are…

Collelldemont, Eulàlia; Vilanou, Conrad – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
Revisions of textual and audio-visual materials reveal the educational vision of Spanish anarchists. Through research, we have discovered the importance of aesthetical education and art in general for this protest political party. By studying the three key historical moments of the movement (1868-1939/1901-1910/1910-1936-1939) we have traced the…

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…
