Verstraete, Pieter – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
In this article the history of silence is looked at from an educational perspective. By closely examining the way three nineteenth-century authors--who all based their educational theories on concrete experiences with persons with disabilities--have related themselves to silence, it will be argued that silence has been educationalised. Silence has…

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…

Clark, Jennifer – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
This paper examines prime minister Robert Menzies decision to support science education in Australian schools in 1963. This was a landmark shift in policy for the federal government, but in many ways mirrors the decision of Eisenhower who brought down the National Defense Education Act (NDEA) in 1958. The paper uses a transnational approach to…

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…

Indian residential schools lasted in Canada for nearly 150 years, with the last one closing in 1996.

This essay examines the way in which nostalgia informs the 1953 painting of a school setting by the popular American artist Norman Rockwell. "The Girl with Black Eye", the cover image of the American popular magazine "The Saturday Evening Post" on 23 May 1953, draws on traditional American iconography of the disciplining of…

Dussel, Inés – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2017
There are images in the history of education that can be considered iconic, images that are, as Georges Didi-Huberman says, "full of future". In this article, I want to consider two children's films from the 1930s, "Emil und die Detektive" (Gerhard Lamprecht, Germany, 1931) and "Zéro de conduite" (Jean Vigo, France,…

When Braem was appointed interim director at the Antwerp National Higher Institute for…
