History of Education Research in Current Periodicals (#232)

Rick Mikulski's picture


Below is a list of recent publications relating to the History of Education. As always, we focus on studies relating to the History of Education (“the history of instruction”) rather than History Education (“the instruction of History”). The list is not exhaustive, and H-Education subscribers are encouraged to contact editorial-education@mail.h-net.org with works I’ve failed to include. Many thanks to H-Education subscribers who suggested material for inclusion. An archive of previous bibliographies can be found here: https://goo.gl/Zucs95
