History of Education Research in Current Periodicals (#204)

Rick Mikulski's picture


In keeping with the excellent tradition set by H-Education’s previous editor, Dr. Penny Richards, below is a list of recent (July/August 2017) articles and reviews relating to the History of Education. These articles are in periodicals OUTSIDE the usual History of Education journals (History of Education, Paedagogica Historica, so on). As always, we focus on articles relating to the History of Education (or “history of instruction”) rather than History Education (“instruction of History”). The list below is not exhaustive, and H-Education subscribers are encouraged to contact us (editorial-education@mail.h-net.msu.edu ) with works I’ve failed to include.
