1. CfP: EXPLORING THE HISTORY OF KNOWLEDGE(S) AND EDUCATION
Special issue of the Nordic Journal of Educational History, to be published in 2022. The history of education has traditionally focused on formal schooling and compulsory education, but in recent years the field has broadened its scope to the study of other institutions and less formal arenas of education. Meanwhile, the history of knowledge has emerged as a new and vital scholarly field examining the production, mediation, circulation and contestation of different forms of knowledge in society. From a disciplinary perspective, the history of knowledge has primarily developed in relation to the history of science and ideas, but issues concerning the distribution of different forms of knowledge, as well as the institutions and actors that shape knowledge, are also at the heart of the history of education.

For this special issue of the Nordic Journal of Educational History, we invite contributions that explore the historical relationship between knowledge and education in different periods and social contexts. By bringing researchers from these expanding subfields of historical inquiry together, our aim is to develop new perspectives that may enhance our understanding of knowledge and education in the past. We seek submissions that discuss empirical cases or address new theoretical and methodological approaches to the historical study of knowledge and education. While Northern Europe is the geographical focus of the journal, contributions may deal with any period or geographical area. Contributions may address one or more of the following themes:
• the relationship between knowledge and power in the history of education
• the agency of children, youth and other marginalized or disempowered groups in the history of education
• the connection between the production and mediation of knowledge in the history of education
• educational spaces and geographical settings involved in the circulation of knowledge
• practices involved in the circulation of knowledge in various educational settings
• the circulation of knowledge between formal and informal or extra-curricular activities

Deadline for 250 word abstracts: 31 December 2020. Deadline for 1–2 page outline: April 2021; manuscripts due September 2021; planned publication: 2022. This special issue will be edited by Björn Lundberg, Ph.D., Department of History, Lund University. Please e-mail abstracts and questions to: bjorn.lundberg@hist.lu.se.

4. FORSKARUTBILDNINGSKURS: PEDAGOGIKENS UTOPIER, 7,5 hp, SU
På Institutionen för pedagogik och didaktik vid SU kommer forskarutbildningskursen Pedagogikens utopier (7,5hp) att ges på halvfart med början 3/11 och slut den 15/1 (kursen ges varannan vecka, ojämna veckor).

Kursens innehåll
Pedagogik och utbildning har under lång tid varit viktiga inslag inom den västerländska utopiska traditionen. I människans sökande efter ett idealsamhälle finns därför ofta föreställningar om lärande och fostran nedtecknade. Kursen behandlar sådana edutopier både som historiska fenomen och i vår egen samtid. Centrala frågor i kursen är vilka återkommande teman av pedagogisk och utbildningsrelaterad art som går att identifiera inom den utopiska traditionen, men också vilka inslag som har minskat i betydelse i samband med det moderna utbildningssamhällets framväxt.

Denna termin ges kursen helt digitalt. För frågor om kursen (schema, kursplan, litteratur), hänvisas till Daniel.lovheim@edu.su.se.

2. CfP: THE RISE OF EDUCATION ACROSS EUROPEAN REGIONS IN THE LAST TWO CENTURIES

Place: University of Groningen (further details will be communicated in due time)

When: January 20th – 21st, 2021

Deadline for submitting a 500-word abstract: September 15th, 2020

As W. E. Marsden (1977) noted in his seminal paper on geography and the history of education, the diffusion of education is unevenly distributed in space and thus marked by local and regional inequalities. Economic historians have increasingly taken advantage of such variation across places to examine (i) the impact of education on economic development, (ii) the determinants of schooling and human capital – while raising important questions regarding the role of religion, landownership and political voice, industrialization and institutional reforms. In other contexts, historians and historians of education have explored regional variations in schooling through analyses of national politics of standardization and homogenization, and in studies of the local and regional contexts of education, shedding further lights on the complex settings that enabled the rise of mass schooling.

Although scholars in each field have taken important steps forward, there remains a lack of true interdisciplinary work on the local and regional variations of schooling. The aim of this workshop is to promote such work, and to provide a platform where quantitative and qualitative contributions may inform each other.

The main focus of the workshop will be the rise of primary and secondary education across European regions in the last two centuries, even though we also welcome contributions on different historical periods and world regions. More specifically, we encourage submissions from a broad range of disciplines that shed light on fundamental aspects of regional variation in schooling, its determinants and impact on social and economic development. These includes:

1. The spatial distribution of education (in terms of schools, enrolment levels, child-teacher ratios, absenteeism etc.)

2. Economy and the demand for schooling

3. Demography and education

4. Education reform and regional differences

5. School finance and teacher salaries

6. Gender educational inequality

7. The local history of schooling

6. CfP: HOW COMPUTERS ENTERED THE CLASSROOM, 1960 – 2000

In historical research, there are now numerous studies devoted to digital change in Europe. The term “digital change” is used to cover all the structural adjustment processes – political, economic, social and cultural – that society is undergoing both as a result of and in response to the progressive introduction of digital technology to our everyday lives. As computers became gradually smaller, more affordable and easier to use, they spread from universities and research institutions to offices, small companies, libraries, private homes and classrooms. Today they are not only used by scientists and engineers, but also by the general public. Digital technologies have gradually permeated everyday tasks and interactions at home, work, education and leisure. This development is often associated with the notion of an emerging “digital society”.

However, in research on the history of education, the question of how computers conquered the classroom, has so far been totally neglected. Almost 20 years ago, in his groundbreaking study on the implementation of new information technologies in Silicon Valley schools, Larry Cuban impressively demonstrated the importance of a historical perspective for understanding the digital present. But only recently did historians take up this challenge. Research projects and historical publications are beginning to address the role of education and training in the emergence of a “digital society”. However, comparative or transnational studies are still rare in recent research and it is almost impossible to obtain an overview of the different regional and national developments. Whilst studies in the USA are now available, the introduction of computers in European schools has not yet been comprehensively analysed. We would like to address this research gap with an edited volume that deals with the introduction of various microchip-based technologies in schools and universities in Europe. National case studies on developments in the north, south, east and west of Europe will be invited, as well as historical studies of transnational entanglements related to the introduction of new technologies in the classroom.

The individual contributions will focus on the driving forces behind the introduction of computers and other microchip-based technologies in education. In a heuristic approximation, government agencies, computer hardware and software producers, telecommunication companies, interested teachers, computer enthusiasts, students, publishers of teaching materials, professional and business associations, can all be included as influential actors or interest groups. Studies on public schools, universities and vocational schools should be considered as they are likely to play a special role in the introduction of computers. Individual historical case studies should not only focus on the purchase and implementation of digital hardware, but also on the acquisition and development of specialized software for educational purposes. However, the history of the introduction of computers in the classroom cannot be told without considering the didactic discussions about the teaching of computer literacy and IT competence.

We invite you to submit a proposal (~500 words) for a case study on how computers entered the classroom in at least one European country. Papers which also consider transnational entanglements are particularly welcome.

Please send your proposals to cflury@ife.uzh.ch and mgeiss@ife.uzh.ch by 18th September 2020.

On the basis of the proposals, an invitation will be issued to write a draft of the paper (~20’000 characters) by Spring 2021. This will then be discussed in an authors’ workshop (possibly online). Afterwards, all contributors will have the opportunity to revise and extend their draft papers. It is expected that this will be a multi-stage process. The aim is to publish this edited volume in an English-speaking publishing house with a broad reach. We hope to be able to hand over the finished manuscript to the publisher by the end of 2021.

1. CfP: THE HISTORY OF KNOWLEDGE AND THE HISTORY OF EDUCATION
History of Education Review special issue: the history of knowledge and the history of education

In recent years, the history of knowledge has developed into a thriving and dynamic subfield of historical studies, with its own specialist journals, book series and research centres, bringing together the study of a diverse range of periods, disciplines and approaches. Two programs of historical investigation in particular have emerged: first, an examination of the production, circulation and translation of knowledges outside of formal institutional structures, sometimes with a focus on historically devalued knowledges such as craft and trade knowledges; and second, an attempt to integrate histories of the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, sometimes conceived of as an expansion of the history of science. As a field, the “history of knowledge” thus connects and overlaps with the history of science and technology, the similarly nascent field of the history of humanities, and intellectual history and the history of ideas in their various manifestations. However, less attention has to date been paid to the connections the new field might have with the history of education.

History of Education Review (Scimago 1) seeks submissions for a special issue, to be co-edited by Tamson Pietsch (UTS) and Joel Barnes (UTS), that will explore the relations and interconnections between the history of knowledge and the history of education. Submissions may examine empirical cases, focusing on any period and geographical region, or take theoretical or historiographical approaches. Authors may wish to consider questions such as:

What are the implications of centring forms of knowledge for established questions and problems in the history of education?

How does bringing the history of science and of other forms of learning into dialogue with the institutional histories of schooling, universities and technical education reframe our understandings of these institutions?

What might a focus on informal or extra-institutional knowledges bring to a field that has conventionally focused on the practices and institutions shaping formal, official knowledges? What are the relations between informal and formal knowledges, and how might attention to excluded knowledges reframe understandings of those that have historically been included within education systems?

What are the possibilities for history of knowledge methods to bring historically devalued Indigenous and non-Western knowledges more fully into the history of education?

How does thinking about the circulation of knowledge bring new perspectives to the traditional subjects of the history of education?

We seek submission of abstracts of 300 words proposing articles for consideration for publication, with full manuscripts to follow. Acceptance of an abstract does not mean acceptance of a paper and submitted papers will proceed through History of Education Review’s usual peer-review process.

Send abstracts and all queries to: joel.barnes@uts.edu.au
Abstracts due: 1 October 2020
Full manuscripts due: 1 April 2021
Planned publication: Issue 1, 2022

2. CfP: SCHOOL FINANCE REFORMS: GENESIS, PURPOSES, AND EFFECTS: FRANCE AND SWEDEN (19TH-21ST CENTURIES)
Call for a special issue to be published in French in Histoire de l’éducation, and in English or the Nordic languages in the Nordic Journal of Educational History.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, European societies generally followed, with variations in timing, rhythm and scale, trajectories of mass enrolment in primary, secondary – general as well as vocational, and higher education. At the same time, the funding schemes of these different types of education have been reshaped over the years, with changes affecting both the respective share of public and private funding, the use or exclusion of market mechanisms in the allocation of resources, and the centralization or decentralization of fiscal resources allocated to education.

Drawing on quantitative methodologies, economists and political scientists have attempted to assess the various effects of these funding schemes on the pace of development of national school systems, on the overall level of educational expenditure, and also on the level of redistribution among social classes. This research shows that these funding schemes are not neutral technical mechanisms. On the contrary, funding schemes contribute to the explanation of different features of past and present educational policies. Moreover, they represent a substantial part of the redistributive mechanisms at work in democratic societies. As such, the history of the funding schemes of education systems feeds into the ongoing reflection on the dynamics of socio-economic inequalities in European societies: an unprecedented level of inequality in the 19th century, a significant reduction in income and wealth inequalities starting after the First World War, and their resurgence since the 1980s.

In this call for papers, we encourage researchers to explore transformations in school funding schemes, their genesis, their social, economic, and political purposes, as well as their effects. This special issue will focus on two countries: France and Sweden. The aim is to fill the gaps in the respective national historiographies, but also to reveal, through comparison, the diversity of possible solutions in the management of similar challenges, such as the unequal cost of schooling in rural and urban areas, the need to balance national objectives and local socio-economic specificities, or the quest for a better use of public resources.
Among the reforms that need further examination, we would like to point out the following (this list is not exhaustive):

For the French case:
-the State taking charge of the remuneration of primary school teachers (1889) and of secondary school teachers (for the “collèges” in 1925)
-the reform of the apprenticeship tax in 1971
-the nationalization of secondary schools between the years 1950 to 1970
-the financial dimensions of school decentralization from 1982 onwards, etc.
For Sweden:
-The centralization of the remuneration of primary school teachers (1910-1930)
-The reform of the student subsidy system (1900-1950)
-The introduction of comprehensive schools in the 1950s and the comprehensive school reform of 1962 (grundskolereformen)
-The decentralization of the Swedish primary school system 1989-91 (the so-called municipalization, kommunaliseringen)
-The introduction of school vouchers (1992)

We invite the authors to be attentive to the plurality of factors that may inform the adoption of a particular reform. The reform may institutionalize previously existing financial flows that may have grown outside any clearly defined legal framework. It may also open the way to new or increased financial flows. In both cases, it is necessary to appreciate the weight of ideological and political models in the reform process. These models provide the justifications for changes in the distribution of the burdens falling on the various funders: competing conceptions of what equality implies (between individuals, gender, social classes, urban and rural territories); or alternative visions of the characteristics of “efficient” organization. Finally, the authors should, as far as possible, endeavor to assess the short-, medium-, and long-term effects of the reforms studied, without prejudging the conformity of these effects with the objectives initially pursued.

Guidelines for the authors
Proposals will include the name of the author, his/her email and institutional affiliation; a title and an abstract in French, English, or a Nordic language (700-800 words), and a bibliography.
Proposals will be sent jointly to Clémence Cardon-Quint (clemence.cardon-quint@u-bordeaux.fr) and Johannes Westberg (b.a.j.westberg@rug.nl).

Scientific committee
Articles will be submitted to a double-blind peer review. The scientific committees of Histoire de l’éducation and of the Nordic Journal of Educational History will supervise the process.

3. ISCHE 42: UPPSKJUTEN TILL AUGUSTI 2021
Eftersom en ISCHE-konferens både styrs av stadgarna för den stiftelse som har ansvaret för konferensen, och varje ISCHE-konferens påverkar nästkommande konferens då den är årlig, har det inte varit ett lätt beslut att fatta. Men det är nu klart att ISCHE 42, som skulle ha hållits i Örebro detta år, skjuts upp ett år. Exakt datum är inte fastställt, men konferensen kommer att organiseras i augusti 2021, i Örebro.

Detta innebär att antagna papers och sessioner förblir antagna. För dem som inte kan delta, kommer möjligheter att finnas att dra tillbaks sin anmälan när vår Conftool öppnar igen i januari 2021. För mer information, se https://www.ische.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Guidelines-for-ISCHE-2021.pdf

1. POST-DOC: ”KVINDERNES UNIVERSITET. AARHUS UNIVERSITET 1928-2015”
Ved Afdelingen for pædagogisk sociologi, DPU på Aarhus Universitet, opslås en toårig post.doc.-stilling.

Post.doc. ansættelsen er tilknyttet til forskningsprojektet ”Kvindernes Universitet. Aarhus Universitet 1928-2015”.

Projektet er finansieret af Aarhus Universitets Forskningsfond og undersøger kvindernes veje ind i de videregående uddannelser gennem et særligt fokus på grænsefladerne mellem køn, profession og universitet.

Ansættelsen er på fuld tid i to år med start 1. august 2020 eller snarest derefter.

Ansættelsessted er DPU, Aarhus Universitet, Campus Emdrup, Tuborgvej 164, 2400 København NV.

Om projektet
Ændringen i danske kvinders uddannelsesmønster har været massiv. Fra at de for 30 år siden fik mindst uddannelse, til at de i dag får mest. Det er bl.a. sket gennem en akademisering af professionsuddannelserne, herunder oprettelsen af professionsrettede kandidatuddannelser på universiteterne. Dette har haft stor indflydelse på uddannelsesinstitutionerne, der har skullet tilpasse uddannelser og institutionelle rammer til den ændrede sammensætning blandt de studerende. Samtidig har professionaliseringen af uddannelser som f.eks. lærer og sygeplejerske betydet, at forholdet mellem praksis og teori har ændret sig.

Forskningsprojektet ”Kvindernes Universitet” henter sin teoretiske og metodiske inspiration fra affektive læsninger af kvinders uddannelseshistorie. Intentionen er at flyttet blikket på dansk universitetshistorie fra jubilæumsfejringer i retning af, hvordan universitetet gøres af mennesker, placeret i hverdagens mange og skiftende, ofte konfliktfyldte situationer, hvor akademiske og faglige forventninger og identiteter brydes, mens grænser og forståelser rykker sig og de samfundsmæssige kontekster ændres.

Deadline: 5 april, 2020

3. CfP: UNIVERSITIES IN EUROPE: COMMON CONTEXTS AND LOCAL PECULIARITIES (WORKSHOP)

X Héloïse Workshop – European Network on Digital Academic History
Bologna 3-5 September 2020
Universities in Europe: common contexts and local peculiarities through source analysis
(origins – twentieth century)

For ten years now, the Héloïse project has brought together scholars working in areas of research on the History of Universities employing information technologies to collect and analyze data. This year, the workshop proposes conducting a general survey of the progress made by the ongoing research, calling on the scientific community for papers that will represent the main theme of the workshop, which is to place emphasis on the variety of sources employed, institutional and non, as well as papers presenting new projects and potential cross-boundary research collaborations.

Pursuing a common pathway within the university system by employing information tools typical to the Héloïse group would not be possible without a clear awareness of what brings together and what differentiates the various European experiences. Until now, the different research groups have addressed these experiences individually, and a fundamental step in the research process is to analyze both the sources currently employed as well as potential sources. The structuring of a common research project requires a preliminary step to identify a clear and, as far as possible, defined subject of enquiry. A panorama of the history of European universities spanning a long period, like that undertaken by the Héloïse research network, includes moments of continuity and rupture, common elements and local peculiarities. Universities were born in Europe and they represent a common and distinctive feature of a continent particularly fragmented during the medieval and modern periods. They are also characterized by temporal and spatial features, changes due to the exchange of people, ideas, knowledges, and institutional profiles, as well as cultural content and functions.

Taking these considerations into account, we propose dedicating the X Héloïse workshop to new materials and methods for the study of academic prosopography from the Middle Ages to the present day. To achieve this aim, we suggest certain themes we believe to be important in light of the considerations outlined above:

• databases and historiography:
• databases and computer languages:
• sources for the History of Universities:

Scholars wishing to participate at the workshop are required to submit an abstract on their proposed theme (1,000-1,500 characters) no later than 31 March 2020 to the Scientific Committee sending an email to: cisui.redazione@unibo.it (Dr. Ilaria Maggiulli).

By 15 May 2020, an initial draft of the workshop calendar will be presented and participants will be sent a relative form to arrange their travel and stay (arrival, departure, overnight stays, meals).

5. CfP: WAR AND EDUCATION
Eds.: Bernhard Hemetsberger (University of Vienna, Austria), Frank Jacob (Nord University, Norway), Sebastian Engelmann (University of Tübingen, Germany)

Wars are disruptions in social life and usually determine changes in many different ways. Education on the other hand, at least since the age of Enlightenment, has been in charge of addressing, even solving social problems for a better future. Both of these elements of human history are, however, closes interconnected. Education is here understood comprehensively as an intergenerational socially directed activity, found in different non-/institutionalized settings and periods, reflected upon in paradigmatic and ordinary categories. Bodies as well as minds are addressed in educative settings alike. The planned anthology to be published in 2021 by Schöningh/Brill as a contribution to the series War (Hi) Stories will highlight educational issues in their respective relation to war, not only from a historical, but especially from a cultural perspective.

Therefore, papers should address questions related to one of the following main categories of interest:

1. education for war: The ‘production’ of able bodies and ‘ready’ minds to win a possible conflict is recurrently seen in pre-war periods. Public discourse and political propaganda that address education are of special interest for its materialization and sedimentation.
2. wartime education: In order to compensate, maintain or (re)direct social order, as resembled by signs of deterioration and resistance, wars are evoked and still penetrate educative settings and demand a reconsideration of pedagogical aims and values.
3. post-war periods: Chapters in this section could analyze the social handling of victory or defeat in educational settings, including inter alia reform programs, reeducation programs or pedagogical innovations

The volume will address these three main categories, although proposals can be sent for theoretical and methodical approaches alike, as well as for all possible historical periods and geographical contexts.

The deadline for submitting a proposal (short paper-abstract, max. 500 words with a reference to at least one of the three categories, and a short bio) is May 1, 2020. Proposals should be sent to Dr. Sebastian Engelmann:
sebastian.engelmann@uni-tuebingen.de

A first response about acceptance will be sent by May 15, 2020. Final papers, ranging between 6,000 and 8,500 words should be submitted by August 31, 2020.

4. NY CENTRUMBILDNING: CENTRUM FÖR KUNSKAPSHISTORIA VID HISTORISKA INSTITUTIONEN I LUND
Den 1 mars 2020 inrättas Centrum för kunskapshistoria vid Historiska institutionen i Lund. Det engelska namnet är Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge och förkortningen lyder LUCK. Föreståndare blir Johan Östling och biträdande föreståndare Anna Nilsson Hammar och David Larsson Heidenblad.

Centrumbildningen kommer primärt att vara ett forum för den kunskapshistoriska forskning som bedrivs i Lund och samla de pågående aktiviteterna: det kunskapshistoriska seminariet, de kunskapshistoriska forskningsprojekten, det kunskapshistoriska gästforskarprogrammet, de nordiska och internationella nätverken, den digitala plattformen (newhistoryofknowledge.com) etc. Centrum för kunskapshistoria kommer härutöver att ha till uppgift att stimulera och möjliggöra kunskapshistoriska samarbeten över ämnes- och institutionsgränser i Lund.

För oss innebär inrättandet av Centrum för kunskapshistoria en organisatorisk formalisering av något som på många sätt redan finns. Samtidigt ser vi det som ett erkännande av det arbete som vi har bedrivit sedan 2014 för att lansera, utveckla och konsolidera kunskapshistoria som ett nytt fält. Vi vill därför rikta vårt varma tack till alla som på olika sätt har visat intresse för vår verksamhet och uppmuntrat oss.

Invigning av Centrum för kunskapshistoria äger rum den 4 mars kl. 14.15–16.00 (i LUX:C126) under festliga former. Det kommer att ske samtidigt som vi lanserar vår nya bok, Forms of Knowledge, en antologi som samlar ett tjugotal forskare med kunskapshistoriska intressen. Varmt välkomna!

Under våren 2020 har vi ett flertal andra aktiviteter på gång. Det kunskapshistoriska seminariet bjuder på ett antal intressanta punkter; till exempel kommer Peter Burke hit i slutet av april (se det bifogade programmet). Utöver dessa seminarier kommer flera forskare med kunskapshistoriskt relevanta ämnen att vara gäster på det högre seminariet i historia (se nedan).

I den första utlysningen till det kunskapshistoriska gästforskarprogrammet fick vi glädjande nog många goda ansökningar. Under maj månad kommer tre forskare att vara gästforskare inom ramen för programmet: Marina Bezzi (Brasilia), Joshua Ehrlich (Macao) och Thomas Ruoss (Leuven). En ny utlysning kommer i april.

3. CfP: UDDANNELSESHISTORIE 2020: LÆRERKULTURER OG LÆRERUDDANNELSE
Der indbydes fortsat til artikler til Uddannelseshistorie 2020, udgivet af Selskabet for skole- og uddannelseshistorie.
Bemærk at deadline for indlevering af artikler er udsat til 15. januar 2020.

Lærerne står i dagens samfund under et krydspres. På den ene side er der eksterne krav og også ofte interne ønsker om professionalisering gennem mere specialiserede uddannelser og en forhøjet status som vidensbaseret profession. På den anden side er der siden arbejdskonflikten i 2013 tale om en ”normalisering” af arbejdsvilkårene, hvor den enkelte lærer oplever en højere grad af detailstyring fra den umiddelbare ledelse og pålagt anvendelse af denne eller hin læringsteori fra skolebestyrelsernes side. Tilsvarende tendenser gør sig også gældende i de andre nordiske lande.

Lærernes samfundsmæssige position har igennem de sidste over 200 år været genstand for stadige fluktuationer. Fra den underordnede degn til den nøjsomme seminarist, senere til den mere selvhævdende folkelærer, enhedslæreren som lønarbejder og endelig den professionaliserede lærer. Vi efterspørger artikler om lærernes socialhistorie, rekrutteringen til seminarieuddannelserne, kønsfordelingen i uddannelserne og i skellet imellem land og by.

Også læreruddannelserne og deres vidensbasering er et omdiskuteret emne for tiden. Hvad har været argumenterne for ”videnskabeligheden” over for de ”praktiske evner” hos den enkelte lærer? Der kan spørges til de historiske grunde til, at Danmark nu er det eneste land i Europa (?), som ikke har lagt sine læreruddannelsesinstitutioner sammen med deres forskningsinstitutioner og/eller universiteter? Hvilke samfundsmæssige virkninger og konsekvenser af dominerende lærerkulturer kan iagttages over tid, og ikke mindst set i lyset af udviklinger i vores nabolande?

Redaktionen af Uddannelseshistorie 2020 inviterer til bredere analyser af sammenhængene imellem alle disse temaer, såvel som mere fokuserede undersøgelser af enkelte aspekter.

Artiklerne skal være forfattet på dansk eller et andet skandinavisk sprog og have en længde på 15-18 sider à 2400 anslag.

Forslag til artikler med kort abstract bedes sendt til redaktionen på mreh@kp.dk senest 15. januar 2020. Der kan forventes tilbagesvar senest 1. februar 2020. Deadline for indlevering af artikel er 1. juli 2020. Uddannelseshistorie 2020 udkommer i december 2020. Ansvarlige for dette nummer er Maria Rejkjær Holmen og Jesper Eckhardt Larsen.
Alle artikler bedømmes i dobbelt peer review. Uddannelseshistorie er anerkendt i BFI med ét point.

4. SKOLDIREKTÖR SVEN ÅKE JOHANSSONS ARKIV, SE/RA/721529
Ett nytt spännande personarkiv har tillgängliggjorts vid Riksarkivet. Sven Åke Johansson (1932-2010) började sin bana inom skolans värld som adjunkt vid Kalmar högre allmänna läroverk 1960. Mellan åren 1970 och 1975 var han huvudsekreterare i utredningen om Skolans inre arbete (SIA) och knöts därefter till utbildningsdepartementet som sakkunnig och departementsråd. Han hade stor del i tillkomsten av 1980 års läroplan för grundskolan (Lgr 80). År 1982 utnämndes Sven Åke Johansson till överdirektör vid Skolöverstyrelsen och var sedan under perioden 1985-1997 skoldirektör i Stockholm.

Sven Åke Johansson har efterlämnat ett arkiv från sin gärning på skolans område, med främst handlingar från arbetet med utredningen om SIA och utarbetandet av Lgr 80. En inblick i hans insikter i denna process, ges av hans kapitel i Utbildningshistoria 1998, se http://www.tam-arkiv.se/node/1883

5. DOKTORANDTJÄNST – UNIVERSITETET I SØRØST-NORGE
Dagens læremiddellandskap gir læreren muligheter til sette sammen ulike former for læringsressurser fra mange ulike kilder og plattformer. Læreren står derfor overfor valg som krever faglig og didaktisk kunnskap, og det kan hevdes at dagens mediesituasjon krever at læreren overtar oppgaver som tradisjonelt har ligget hos forlagsredaktører i læremiddelforlagene. Det er derfor behov for kunnskap som sikrer at læreren foretar læremiddeldidaktiske og faglige valg i en profesjonssammenheng.

Dette prosjektet skal bidra til å utvikle kunnskap om lærerens rolle som læremiddelredaktør innen fagområdet historie/samfunnsfag. Prosjektet kan ha ulike former for kvalitative metoder som utgangspunkt. Vi ønsker at den som søker, skisserer sin egen problemstilling, knyttet til hvordan læreren operasjonaliserer sin faglige kunnskap gjennom fagdidaktiske avgjørelser knyttet til læremiddeldidaktiske anliggender. Et eksempel på noe som kan undersøkes, kan være hvilke begrunnelser og prioriteringer som ligger til grunn for lærerens valg og tilpasning av læremidler, og hvordan disse begrunnelsene og prioriteringene reflekterer lærerens faglige bakgrunn. Vi er imidlertid også åpne for andre problemstillinger som kan belyse læreres ulike valgmuligheter hva gjelder læremidler.

Den som ansettes vil bli tilknyttet USNs satsingsområde, Læremiddelanalyse og læremiddeldidaktikk samt forskergruppen for læremiddelforskning.
Vi er særlig interessert i kandidater som kan gjøre komparative undersøkelser av læremiddelredaktørrollen i de nordiske land. Det teller også som positivt at søkeren har egen erfaring som lærer.

Tilsetting skjer for en periode på tre år. Det vil ikke bli lagt undervisningsplikt til stillingen

1. NIO DOKTORANDPLATSER I FORSKARSKOLAN I TILLÄMPAD UTBILDNINGSHISTORIA
Sprid gärna informationen till potentiella sökanden!

Under hösten 2020 startar den nationella forskarskolan ”Perspektiv på dagens skola: Forskarskola i tillämpad utbildningshistoria (PEDASK)”. Forskarskolan, som finansieras av Vetenskapsrådet, är en unik satsning på utbildningshistorisk forskning som syftar till att ge ett grundläggande bidrag till det internationella utbildningshistoriska forskningsfältet genom att utveckla forskningsinriktningen ”tillämpad utbildningshistoria.” Inriktningen avser forskning om utbildningens och undervisningens historia som på olika sätt bidrar till en ökad förståelse för brännande utbildningspolitiska frågor i vår samtid. Det är alltså en forskarskola för den som vill förstå varför vårt skolväsende ser ut som det gör idag, vill nyansera bilden av ”skolan förr” som saluförs i media, eller visa på de konflikter och orättvisor som kännetecknat utbildningens historia. För mer information, se För mer information, se https://appliedhistoryofeducation.school.blog/

Forskarskolan fokuserar på tre teman som är grundläggande i en tid präglad av globalisering, intensifierat reformtryck och debatt kring skolans ideologiska innehåll: Skola i debatt och historieskrivning, Skolväsendets och skolreformernas historia, och Skola i internationellt och transnationellt perspektiv. Inom ramen för denna allmänna inriktning ryms alltså en lång rad aktuella ämnen för den som är intresserad, inklusive exempelvis studier av lärares förändrade status och arbetsmiljö, inkludering, digitalisering, privata skolor, skolbolag och friskoleväsendets utveckling, internationella organisationers roll och den utbildningsvetenskapliga forskningens formering, pedagogiska idéers genomslag under efterkrigstiden, förändringar i ämnesundervisningen, minoriteters skolgång, skolväsendets regionala utveckling, skoldisciplinens och skolkrisernas historia. Av stort intresse för denna forskarskola är också studier ur elevperspektiv, frågor om skolans vardagsliv och materialitet. Såväl den lilla historien – mikrohistorien om en elev, en lärare eller politiker – som makrohistorien är av intresse för denna forskarskola.

Forskarskolan PEDASK är en mångdisciplinär och sammanhållen forskarskola på internationell grund, där doktorander med bakgrund i många olika discipliner kommer att kunna känna sig hemma. Med nio doktorander placerad vid fyra av Sveriges främsta utbildningshistoriska forskningsmiljöer (Umeå, Uppsala, Stockholm och Örebro) kommer forskarskolans doktorander att få de bästa förutsättningarna för att bidra till den internationella forskningsfronten, där internationella internat, doktorandkurser, ventileringsseminarier och skrivbordsbyten kommer att spela en viktig roll.

Forskarskolans föreståndare är huvudsökande Johannes Westberg, och dess styrgrupp består av Joakim Landahl, Anna Larsson, Esbjörn Larsson och Daniel Lindmark. Forskarskolans doktorander kommer att antas under våren 2020, och dess verksamhet kommer att lanseras under ISCHE 19-22 augusti 2020 i Örebro. Frågor om kommande utlysningar riktas med fördel till forskarskolans föreståndare eller till medlemmarna av styrgruppen. Forskarskolans utlysningar beräknas öppna 1 februari 2020.

2. SYMPOSIUM: 1820 ÅRS SKOLORDNING 200 ÅR
Vi vill härmed inbjuda till utbildningshistoriskt symposium å Blåsenhus i Uppsala fredag 13 mars 2020 för att uppmärksamma att det är tvåhundra år sedan 1820 års skolordning utfärdades.

1820 års skolordning utgör tröskeln mellan det tidigmoderna och det moderna. Syftet med symposiet är att belysa denna och tidigare skolordningar från 1561/71 och framåt ur en rad perspektiv, där 1820 kan utgöra både utgångspunkt och slutmål.

Det övergripande temat är hur vi skall förstå de svenska skolordningarna. Föredragen kan därför med fördel behandla någon av följande aspekter:

•Tillkomstkritik
•Innehåll
•Skolordningarnas implementering
•Ett skolämne i en särskild skolordning
•Skolämnenas utveckling
•Specifika teman

Omfattningen på föredragen skall vara trettio minuter (20 minuter föredrag samt 10 minuter till frågor och diskussion).

Symposiet arrangeras av utbildningshistoriska forskargruppen vid Institutionen för pedagogik, didaktik och utbildningsstudier å Uppsala universitet.

O S A för dem som är intresserade att delta senast fredag 17 januari 2020 till axel.horstedt@edu.uu.se eller germund.larssson@edu.uu.se
De som vill delta med ett föredrag är välkomna att skicka in titel och kort abstract.

3. REMINDER CfP: 11th HISTORY OF EDUCATION DOCTORAL SUMMER SCHOOL
University of Lyon, France (École normale supérieure de Lyon), 11–14 June 2020

This conference invites applications from postgraduate students in the history of education with an interest in the histories of educational spaces and discourses and new ways of working with images, artefacts, and archives. Leading international historians of education will give lectures and workshops, and offer advice concerning the research process. There will be opportunities for students to discuss their dissertation projects with fellow doctoral candidates and receive comments from prominent scholars in the field.

The summer school started as an EERA pilot project and is the eleventh conference in a series of successful events that started in Ghent in 2010 and was followed by meetings in Birmingham 2011, Lisbon 2012, Hamburg 2013, Umeå 2014, Luxembourg 2015, Groningen 2016, Porto Conte 2017, Riga 2018 and Liverpool 2019.

4. CfP: UNIVERSITY ANNIVERSARIES BETWEEN HISTORY, PRESENT, AND FUTURE
Research into the history of universities and colleges is often associated with founding anniversaries. Since the history of universities and other colleges is written mostly from within the respective institution, it reflects an expression of the institutional self-image at the time of the anniversary, and is suitable for examining both deliberate and unaware self-attributions. At the same time, the study of past university anniversaries makes it possible not only to put in perspective the universities’ past, but also their past future expectations, and the role that history should play in them.

Anniversaries prove to be a site of conflict concerning both their past and their future. Conflicts might arise within a university when different founding narratives and references to traditions compete with each other, and they may emerge between different universities disputing each other’s anniversary celebrations, and eventually jubilees fail. In addition, anniversaries reveal further processes of negotiation. The (non-)selection of anniversary protagonists, i.e. actors in a position to discuss historical matters, is also an issue of power, as is evident from students’ countermemorial publications, not only in the context of ”1968”. Moreover, the allocation of funds associated with anniversaries can trigger power struggles, and knowledge interests of the historians in charge might clash with the goals of university management or press departments.

Indeed, anniversaries play a central role for university communication. This opens up another field of investigation. Anniversaries allow universities to distinguish themselves by claiming societal relevance and thus entangling tradition and innovation, past and future. The modes of ascribing future importance are shaped by the institutional self-image of a university, for example, as regards the applicability of knowledge. Contradictions arise not only between different types of institutions (e.g., between universities and institutes of technology), but also between departments and disciplines shaped by different academic cultures. Despite their disparate contents, such attributions of relevance are formulated against the background of conscious and unconscious assumptions about the future.

Finally, anniversaries are used to create institutional gravitas, regularly in the form of commemorative volumes that are often compiled in an all-institutional effort by dozens of authors. Such contributions, however, are not the only ”type of history” produced by anniversaries; the range of doing anniversary history comprises exhibitions, plays, orwebsites, the solemn reception of public authorities, commemorative ceremonies, or parties of student associations and groups. The various historiographic methods address individual and collective identities and (re-)produce affiliations to (imagined) communities. Thus, performative social practices of various protagonists emerge from the anniversary, forming new ensembles through adaptation and alteration.

Contributions to the workshop, which will take place from June 19 to 20, 2020 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, are expected to discuss the above questions or similar ones in the context of universities, polytechnic institutes and technical colleges, teacher seminars and pedagogical colleges, military academies, universities of applied sciences, special schools and academies, and privately sponsored colleges. The period of investigation is between 1750 and the present. Particularly welcome are approaches that discuss ”past futures”, connect different types of institutions, pursue a diachronic approach, or examine the roles of those university members involved in anniversaries who were paid less scholarly attention so far (e.g., technical and administrative staff). Critical reflections on current or planned university anniversaries are also welcome.

Against the background of a mostly segregated research landscape, which often separates the history of universities from the one of other institutions of higher education, the workshop aims at encouraging an integrated historiography of academia. The workshop thus ties in with the Karlsruhe lecture series ”Technische Hochschulen. Perspektiven der Universitätsgeschichte” (Technical Universities. Perspectives of University History) of the summer of 2018.

Proposals (max. 2,500 characters, including spaces) along with a short biographical note should be handed in via e-mail to anton.guhl@kit.edu and gisela.huerlimann@kit.edu until January 31, 2020. The length of presentations will be 20 minutes. The decision on the papers selected will be communicated by February 29, 2020. Conference languages will be German and English. We will try to cover travel and accommodation expenses for all speakers, but researchers without institutional ties or travel funds will be given preference. The aim is to publish selected contributions e.g., as the special issue of a (peer-reviewed) journal. Participation in the workshop is also possible without a publishing commitment; conversely, paper acceptance does not guarantee publication.
