Call for Submissions:
History of Education Society Outstanding Book Award
This award recognizes the most outstanding book on the history of education published during the previous year. This includes work on schooling as well as educational institutions and processes more broadly, concerning the U.S. and/or other locations. Only books copyrighted in 2017 are eligible for consideration for the 2018 prize.
Criteria used to evaluate the books include:
Transnational Perspectives on Black Germany
University of Toronto
Researchers and activists are invited to submit paper and/or panel proposals for this conference discussing contributions of women to politics. The historical contribution is particularly relevant as ‘her’ story in politics is still missing in academic work. In addition, it seems as if past prejudices do not differ much from the ones expressed in the present, and thus the conference also wants to tackle relations between historical representation and position of women in politics with the situation at present. How can history inform current debates?
