AàC – ICHRE summer conference 2020

Dear All,

We hope you are keeping well. In view of the current pandemic, ICHRE has decided to replace its planned summer conference for 2020 with an online history of education research conference on 9 July 2020. This will be organised to help maintain contacts between researchers in the history of education in the UK and in different parts of the world, and also to highlight new research and current publications and projects in the history of education.

The conference will be free to attend and open to all, and run via Blackboard Collaborate. Please see our new website for further information about the conference.  We plan to organise the day in three sections from 10.30 to 17.30 UK time to allow participation as appropriate from different time zones, with breaks envisaged. At this stage conference sessions will run (session 1) from 11.00 to 12.30, (session 2) from 14.00 to 15.30, and (session 3) from 16.30 to 17.30 UK time – we will circulate a full programme in due course. The format will be short (max 10 minutes) presentations with plenty of time for discussion. We welcome works-in-progress and contributions from researchers and research students at any stage of a project.  We welcome offers to contribute short presentations and messages suitable for the online format.
