Educational History Articles in Current Periodicals (#197)

Penny Richards's picture



Our usual caveats and ground rules:  These articles are in periodicals OUTSIDE the usual History of Education journals (HEQ, Paed. Hist., etc.). Many were found at online Table of Contents sites maintained by journal publishers--if those sites give no page numbers, none are given here. Alternatively, some were submitted by network members. Your definitions of history and education may exclude some of these and include others. It's not always easy to tell from titles what an article is about, but most of these are pretty clearly on topic.  Only journals from 2016-17 were scanned for inclusion. Contributions, from the most recent two calendar years only, are always welcome--please send them to me OFF-LIST --and they'll be added to the next batch for posting.
