Beyond the conference room

This blog aims to promote the actitivies of the Network 17 “Histories of Education” a branch of the EERA – European Educational Research Association . It seeks to be a virtual platform of encounters for researchers interested in history of education and related fields, a space for experimenting new forms of academic comunication and sharing projects and ideas.
The focus of the Network is the histories of European educational spaces, their national or theoretical discourses, ways that ideas about education travelled and crossed disciplinary and national borders in the past, public exhibitions, intellectual and professional networks and their associated publications, issues that directly or indirectly relate to the history of schooling and the development of associated ideas and practices, and the history of multiculturalism. The Network is especially interested in new forms of historical scholarship (for example, in images or artefacts or archives), new media (e.g. web based projects) and in under-represented areas (European regional influences, forms of colonial education, adult education and minority ethnic education).
