1. PhD-COURSE: WRITING EDUCATIONAL HISTORY. DEVELOPING NEW METHODOLOGIES.
DPU/Aarhus University in Copenhagen, Denmark. 22.-24. September 2021
Informed by recent theories of affects, relations, materialities, and entanglements the field of the history of education is moving in new directions. Discipline and order used to be the object of study but this is now replaced by attention to the complex and chaotic processes of coming into being where a myriad of actors are involved and where materiality, affects and education are intertwined. The use of new theories in the field of educational history is accompanied by a methodological rethinking. It broadens the conception of what historical sources might be as well as how to comprehend, approach and include various sources in the historical study.
The aim of this doctoral course is to explore and develop new approaches to writing the history of education. This will happen through lectures, and through extended self-activity and laboratory work with new methodologies and analytical strategies. Professor Joyce Goodman and Professor Maria Tamboukou will join us and give lectures reflecting on their important contributions to their field.
The course is organized and led by Ning de Coninck-Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Lisa Rosén Rasmussen (email@example.com), DPU/Aarhus University

2. REGISTRATION OPENS JULY 1: THE 8TH NORDIC EDUCATION HISTORY CONFERENCE 2022
25-27 May 2022 in Aalborg (Denmark)
Centre for Education Policy Research and Centre for History (The research groups for Knowledge, Sustainability and Heritage (KSH)) and Conflict, Coercion and Authority in History (CCA) invites you to the 8th Nordic Education History Conference hosted by Aalborg University, Denmark.
The theme of this conference ”Global and Local Histories of Education and the States” zooms in on the role of education in this transitional history of state and power relations from both local, national and transnational perspectives.
Raising historical awareness of these developments and trajectories seems key today in a world where education is often promoted using standards, comparisons and ubiquitous technologies. Historical research in this respect offers the prospect of rewinding our understandings of education and point out all the lost possibilities and alternatives as well as providing sensitivities for understanding resilience, counter-movements and the shifting role of the local and national in a globalized world.
The conference invites papers, panels and posters on the following sub-themes and keywords:
Interactions between the transnational, national and local
Public versus private agents in education
The role of education, the social question and welfare state models
Rethinking the role of the nation state in relation to education and knowledge
Knowledge, education and state formation
Institutional and organizational history of education
Book and literacy history
Histories of numbers and science
Disease, state of exception and histories of education
The role of universities in the history of education and states.
Registration for the conference opens July 1st 2021
Abstract deadline is October 1, 2021
