This month we were joined by Professor Gary McCulloch and Dr. Heather Ellis to talk about the new book series, A Cultural History of Education, which is out now from Bloomsbury. Spanning thousands of years, from antiquity to present day, this ambitious new series takes a thematic approach to the cultural history of education. It traces themes such as church, religion and morality; family, community and sociability; literacies and life-histories; and teachers and teaching across different periods, cultures and societies. In our discussion, series editor Professor Gary McCulloch talks about the background to the series; how we might define the cultural history of education; and the process of developing such an ambitious project. Dr. Heather Ellis, editor of the fifth volume, A Cultural History of Education in the Age of Empire (1800 - 1920), discusses the challenges and opportunities presented by 'empire', how this developed in the volume, and how we might counter 'grand narratives'. A Cultural History of Education is available now from Bloomsbury.  You can follow the History of Education Society UK on Twitter, keep up-to-date with the latest research inThe History of Education journal, and learn more about our events, publications, and conferences on our website. 
For this month's episode we were joined by Carmen Flury and Dr. Rosalía Guerrero to talk about their research into computer education in Europe, as part of the project 'Education and the European Digital Agenda: Switzerland, Germany and Sweden after 1970', based at the University of Zurich. We explore how computer education emerged in Sweden and East Germany, and the conditions that drove and shaped it; the varying roles of the state, civic society, and teachers; the role of women in computer education; and future ideas to explore the history of computer education beyond Europe.To find out more about Education and the European Digital Agenda project, visit the project website here.You can follow the History of Education Society UK on Twitter, keep up-to-date with the latest research inThe History of Education journal, and learn more about our events, publications, and conferences on our website.

Education and historical representations on stage and screen in Germany and the USA. Our wide-ranging discussion touches on the definitions and uses of public history; transatlantic developments in the field; the relationship between public history and educational history; film as an educational tool; and the educative potential of Holocaust film, drawing on Nicholas’s research on HBO’s Conspiracy.To read access the edited volume, find out more about the Center for German-American Educational History, and follow some of the references in our conversation, follow the links below:Tim Zumhof and Nicholas K.

To kick off 2021 we're joined by Dr. Tamson Pietsch and Dr. Joel Barnes to talk about their work on the connections--and tensions--between the fields of the history of knowledge and the history of education. We discuss how the focus and methods of the history of knowledge can help us think through how knowledge is produced and legitimated; understand the role of institutions; and develop our perspectives on post-colonial and indigenous knowledges. We also mention the recent collaborative seminar, 'History of knowledge meets history of education', held jointly the Australian Centre for Public History and the Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge on 18th November 2020. The History of Education Review will publish a special issue on the history of knowledge and the history of education in 2022.Dr. Tamson Pietsch is Associate Professor in Social and Political Sciences at the University of Technology Sydney and Director of the Australian Centre for Public History. Dr. Joel Barnes is Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Queensland.You can follow the History of Education Society UK on Twitter, or learn more about our events, publications, and conferences on our website. 
To launch the History of Education Society UK's brand new podcast during this year's virtual conference, we spoke to Professor Jane Martin about the 150th anniversary of the 1870 Education Act. We talk about how and why the Act emerged; its connections to early socialist and feminist movements; the impact of the Act on working-class children and girls' education; how the Act played a role in the early development of the welfare state; and what we can learn about education provision and local democracy in the twenty-first century.You can follow the History of Education Society UK on Twitter, or learn more about our events, publications, and conferences on our website.
