2011- Histories of Education Summer School

Researching Histories of European Educational Spaces, Discourses and Sources

University of Birmingham, UK, 9 - 12 June 2011

This conference is for postgraduate history of education researchers registered at European universities and post-doctoral historians of education who are interested in the histories of European educational spaces and discourses and new ways of working with images, artefacts and archives. Leading international historians of education will offer advice about the research process, including publication, and there will be opportunities for students to discuss their research topics and to network.

It is again supported by the European Educational Research Association, the Paedagogica Historica Foundation and the International Standing Conference for History of Education (ISCHE). Additional support this year is offered by the journal Educational Review. The event is organised by EERA Network 17 ‘Histories of Education’ and the Universities of Birmingham, Cambridge, Leuven and Oxford.
