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…

Giudici, Anja; Grizelj, Sandra – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
By the end of the nineteenth century, the relationship between the state, language and schooling had become extremely close: a state was supposed to be "national," and a real nation was supposed to be monolingual. Following the literature on nation-building, it is because schooling was charged with the task of forming such nations that…

Goodman, Joyce – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
This article deconstructs some of the underlying assumptions that inform projects in Paynter and Aston's 1970 book, "Sound and Silence." Foucauldian and Deleuzian technologies of power and technologies of desire are used to frame an argument that Paynter and Aston's projects play into the fabrication of sonorous bodies and sonic selves…

Hoegaerts, Josephine – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
At the heart of the nineteenth-century educational soundscape lies a paradox. Whilst "modern" classrooms generally strived for orderly silence, the goal of its educational practices was the production of competent "citizens". Middle-class boys in particular were expected to acquire a voice fit for business, the professions, or…
