Parution – Olivier Marty et Ray J. Amirault, « Nicolas de Condorcet. The Revolution of French Higher Education », Springer, 2020

https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9783030435653

This Springer brief explores the contribution of Nicolas de Condorcet in French higher education, the historical development of his work and its influence on the history of the French education system.

Condorcet’s educational proposals were first devised as five Memoires, which were consolidated into the ‘Rapport et Projet de Decret sur l’Organisation Generale de l’Instruction Publique’. This report has sparked debate on the subject of education in the past and lives on as a basis for ongoing iterations of plans for education by other writers.
In developing these ideas and especially how they apply to higher education, this book bridges the gap between the 18th century French Enlightenment shift and the Revolution of higher education, with the advent of the Grandes Écoles such as École Normale Supérieure, École Polytechnique and Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers. Each of these schools was represented by a specific institutionalized educational idea rooted in the works of the philosopher.

This book offers insights to a wider audience in the educational thought of Condorcet, which at the time of his writing was overshadowed by Rousseau, and shows how his ideas of liberty and equality flourish in the French educational system and remain an important part in today’s French academic, cultural and political culture.

L’histoire de l’éducation est un domaine de recherche foisonnant, aux contours fluctuants, dont l’analyse rétrospective est susceptible de renforcer une réflexivité critique. Les contributions de ce dossier s’y emploient, en analysant les travaux et les évolutions de la discipline en France, en Espagne, en Angleterre, au Portugal et dans les pays baltes. Elles prennent appui sur une recension des ancrages institutionnels et réseaux de communications qui conditionnent et favorisent le renouvellement des connaissances. Ces dernières sont analysées via les pratiques et productions de ceux qui se reconnaissent dans ce champ. Un accent particulier est porté sur les thèses de doctorat. À partir d’un matériau comparable, les articles montrent que les thèses permettent de cerner les logiques de positionnement d’une discipline, attestant que cette étape doctorale peut tantôt être investie comme moyen pour « cadrer » le devenir d’un champ (consolider un courant, une école de pensée), tantôt constituer un espace de renouvellement. Les bilans historiographiques confirment le dynamisme du domaine mais aussi les tensions qu’il connaît. Le rythme soutenu des changements institutionnels de la péninsule ibérique témoigne ainsi de la fragmentation de la recherche historienne. Les restructurations institutionnelles et éditoriales sont également au cœur de l’étude sur la France, pour éclairer sous un nouveau jour la vitalité du domaine. Enfin, la vision panoramique sur les évolutions depuis 1960 de l’histoire de l’éducation en Grande-Bretagne permet d’allier une historicisation de ses réseaux de communications avec celle de ses contenus.

Anglais / English

History of education is a rich field of study whose outlines vary and retrospective analysis may contribute to strengthening critical thinking. The articles in this special issue work towards this by studying research in this field and its evolution in France, Spain, Britain, Portugal and the Baltic States. They build on the identification of institutional anchoring and communication networks that condition and foster a renewal of knowledge. Specific focus is given to doctoral dissertations. Working on comparable material, the articles show that dissertations help to identify the logics of positioning for a discipline. This first step in a career can sometimes be taken as a means to “framing” the future of a field (to consolidate a school of thought), or it can sometimes constitute a space for renewal. The historiographical assessments show the dynamism of the history of education as well as its tensions. Thus, the sustained pace of institutional changes in the Iberian Peninsula demonstrates the fragmentation of historical research. Institutional and editorial restructuration are also at the heart of the study of the French situation, shedding new light on the vitality of the field. Lastly, the panoramic vision of the evolution of History of Education in Britain since 1960, offers a way to link the historicization of its communication networks with its contents.

https://www.oxfordhandbooks.com/view/10.1093/oxfordhb/9780199340033.001.0001/oxfordhb-9780199340033

This handbook offers a global perspective on the historical development of educational institutions, systems of schooling, ideas about education, and educational experiences. Sections deal with questions of theory and methods, ancient and medieval education, the rise of national school systems, the development of universities in different contexts, problems of inequality and discrimination in education, and reform and institutional change. Specific chapters discuss colonialism and anticolonial struggles, indigenous education, gender issues in education, higher education systems, educational reform, urban and rural education, the education of minority groups, comparative, international, and transnational education, childhood and education, nonformal and informal education, and a range of other topics. Chapters consider changing scholarship in the field, connect nationally oriented works by comparing themes and approaches, and provide suggestions for further research and analysis. Like many other subfields of historical research and writing, the history of education has been deeply affected by international social and political upheaval occurring since the 1960s. In this regard, as chapters weigh the influence of revisionist perspectives at various points in time, they take particular note of those arising after that time. In discussing changing viewpoints, their authors consider how schooling and other educational experiences have been shaped by the larger social and political context, and how these influences have affected the experiences of students, their families, and the educators who have worked with them. Each chapter includes notes and a bibliography for readers interested in further study.

Parution – Robert Troschitz, « Higher Education and the Student. From welfare state to neoliberalism », Routledge, 2017

https://www.routledge.com/Higher-Education-and-the-Student-From-welfare-state-to-neoliberalism/Troschitz/p/book/9780367133498

As one of the pioneers and leading advocates of neoliberalism, Britain, and in particular England, has radically transformed its higher education system over the last decades. Universities have increasingly been required to act like businesses, and students are frequently referred to as customers nowadays. Higher Education and the Student investigates precisely this relation between the changing function of higher education and what we consider the term ‘student’ to stand for.

Based on a detailed analysis of government papers, reports, and speeches as well as publications by academics and students, the book explores how the student has been conceptualised within the debate on higher education from the birth of the British welfare state in the 1940s until today. It thus offers a novel assessment of the history of higher education and shows how closely the concept of the student and the way we comprehend higher education are intertwined. Higher Education and the Student opens up a new perspective that can critically inform public debate and future policy – in Britain and beyond.

The book should be of great interest to scholars, researchers, and postgraduate students in the fields of higher education; educational policy and politics; and the philosophy, sociology, and history of higher education.

Parution – Yoko Yamasaki et Hiroyuko Kuno, « Educational Progressivism, Cultural Encounters and Reform in Japan », Routledge, 2017

https://www.routledge.com/Educational-Progressivism-Cultural-Encounters-and-Reform-in-Japan/Yamasaki-Kuno/p/book/9780367133917#

Educational Progressivism, Cultural Encounters and Reform in Japan provides a critical analysis of educational initiatives, progressive ideas and developments in curriculum and pedagogy in Japan, from 1900 to the present day. Drawing on evidence of both cultural encounters and internal drivers for progressivism and reform, this book re-evaluates the history of Japanese education to help inform ongoing and future debates about education policy and practice worldwide.

With contributions from Japanese scholars specialising in the history and philosophy of education and curriculum studies, chapters consider key collaborative improvements to teacher education, as well as group learning, ‘life education’, the creative arts and writing, and education for girls and women. The book examines Western influences, including John Dewey, Carleton Washburne and A. S. Neill, as well as Japan’s own progressive exports, such as holistic Zenjin education, Children’s Villages and Lesson Study, highlighting cultural encounters and progressive initiatives at both transnational and national levels. The chapters reflect on historical and political background, motivations, influences and the impact of Japanese progressive education. They also stimulate, through argument and critical discussion, a continuing discourse concerning principles, policy, politics and practices of education in an increasingly globalised society.

A rigorous and critical study of the history of progressive education in Japan, this book will interest an international readership of academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of progressive education, comparative education, social and cultural history, history of education, Japanese studies, curriculum studies, and the history of childhood.

Parution – Edward Janak, « A Brief History of Schooling in the United States. From Pre-Colonial Times to the Present », Palgrave, 2019

https://www.palgrave.com/gp/book/9783030243968

This book presents a sweeping overview of the historical and philosophical foundations of schooling in the United States. Beginning with education among the indigenous peoples of the Americas and going on to explore European models of schooling brought into the United States by European colonists, the author carefully traces the arc of educational reform through major episodes of the nation’s history. In doing so, Janak establishes links between schools, politics, and society to help readers understand the forces impacting educational policy from its earliest conception to the modern day. Chapters focus on the philosophical, political, and social concepts that shaped schooling of dominant and subcultures in the United States in each period. Far from being merely concerned with theoretical foundations, each chapter also presents a snapshot of the “nuts and bolts” of schooling during each period, examining issues such as pedagogical devices, physical plants, curricular decisions, and funding patterns.
