I am seeking historiographical recommendations for a project that will examine religious education in the British World from 1900-1970, focusing specifically on Canada, England, Australia, and New Zealand. At this point I am casting a wide net in search of works on this topic: I am interested in questions of content, curriculum, publications, and official policy regarding religion in schools. I would appreciate recommendations of scholarly works of history (or histories of education) that speak to these topics either at the national or state/provincial level in any of these four territories, and for public or private schools during the early to mid-twentieth century. Feel free to post on this thread or contact me directly at Stephen.Jackson@usiouxfalls.edu
Thank you in advance for any recommendations you can provide, particularly for works on the history of religious education in Australia and New Zealand.
