Another one-off podcast episode about History of Higher Education. It is titled "First Woman's College Diploma, 1840." This short and somewhat informal episode is part of a series called "Documents that changed the world," hosted by the iSchool at University of Washington. Link here:

History of Education Research in Current Periodicals (#209)

Preface: Please excuse the short hiatus. I recently changed universities, resulting in a cross-continental move. That now finished, our regular monthly posting of recent literature in the History of Education will resume!  Thank you for your patience. Our last posting covered November and December of 2017 (https://goo.gl/vUY5BC) so this one will cover Jan, Feb, and March of 2018.

Announcement of New Book Series in Intercultural Transfer Studies with Anthem Press

We invite authors from the humanities and social sciences to submit book proposals and manuscripts for our new book series in Intercultural Transfer Studies. We seek manuscripts that highlight the interconnected nature of the modern world since the fifteenth century. Book proposals and manuscripts should focus on the processes of intercultural contacts and transfers that shaped human societies and cultures. The intercultural transfer paradigm allows us to study phenomena within the space these phenomena created, and which cuts across national spaces.
