Myers, Kevin; Ramsey, Paul J.; Proctor, Helen – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
National borders and school boundaries are integral components of the history of education. Configured as sites of governance and regulation, as spaces of continuity and order, they also introduced a sedentary bias into much historical research. This article presents an argument for writing migrants, migration, and human mobility into the history…

Whitehead, Kay – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018

Well-qualified and progressive women teachers, Kathleen Player, Evelyn Clark (née Hyde), and Mary Hargrave (née Robinson), were appointed as WEOs in 1945, 1949, and 1950 respectively. I argue that the three…

Götz, Georg – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
This paper focuses on the development of history teaching in West Germany from the 1970s onwards. When in the early 1970s the relevance of history -- both as an academic discipline and as a school subject -- was challenged, this led to fierce debates as a multitude of new concepts were being developed. One of these was Annette Kuhn's revolutionary…

This article aims to present the transformations as well as the decline of the Froebelian occupation of paper folding that took place in Great Britain between 1851 and the 1920s.

Each of the seminal texts which…

This article starts from "histoire croisée" to develop a genuinely relational analysis of performances of health education in the context of open-air schools. It interrogates, through places, people, and things conceived of as being performatively entangled, the notion of an internationalisation of school hygiene. These places, people,…
