This Congress is organized by the international Standing Conference for the History of Education (ISCHE), the Society for the History of Children and Youth (SHCY), the Disability History Association (DHA) and the Faculty of psychology and sciences of education.
Contemporary historiography shows a renewed interest in phenomena of transfer, circulation, diffusion, flux and exchange among different spheres. Notions such as internationalization, globalization and others are used to describe these phenomena. Placing these concepts in their historical and theoretical frameworks, the aim of this Conference is to examine the processes that they designate in the field of education.
The Conference calls upon scholars to contribute by exploring the international dimensions of their areas of study. We will encourage comparative, transnational and entangled approaches to the history of education, the history of childhood and youth and to the history of disabilities. The Organizing Committee will particularly welcome contributions that theorize areas of study, and their inter-relationships, using concepts of class, gender, race and ethnicity.
