Résumés

Français/French : Partant du constat que les institutions religieuses et les initiatives qu’elles portent ont une place importante dans l’histoire de l’éducation, ce dossier analyse les modalités de la transmission religieuse, en particulier en milieu catholique mais non exclusivement, et en élargissant la perspective par rapport aux institutions scolaires. Sont examinés différents lieux, acteurs et événements qui concourent, en parallèle à la construction de l’école laïque et parfois en réaction à celle-ci, à maintenir et transformer le processus de transmission religieuse (savoirs, savoir-être, rituels et identités) à l’ère de la sécularisation. Les articles traitent d’une part de l’école et de son statut – privé ou public, religieux ou laïc – avec des exemples français, ainsi que l’étude d’un cas paradoxal, celui du choix par les parents d’un établissement français en Tunisie. Ils montrent que parents et institutions (État ou Églises) négocient, depuis la Révolution, pour conjuguer transmission scolaire, morale et religieuse ou areligieuse, et sont à la recherche de fragiles et provisoires compromis. D’autre part, les articles étudient des initiatives émanant des Églises pour contrecarrer la sécularisation et la laïcisation scolaire, tant en matière de réforme du catéchisme que d’événements comme les Journées mondiales de la jeunesse. Couvrant deux siècles d’histoire, ce dossier montre que la sécularisation de la société n’élimine pas la transmission religieuse, mais amène à une diversification de ses formes, avec un réinvestissement de l’espace public par les acteurs religieux.

English/Anglais : Building on the premise that religious institutions and the initiatives that they engender have an important place in the history of education, this special issue analyses the methods by which the various aspects of religious tradition and heritage are transmitted, in particular but not exclusively in Catholic milieus, by enlarging the perspective relative to educational institutions. We examine various places, actors and events that converge parallel to the construction of secular schools and sometimes in reaction to them, to maintain and transform the process of religious transmission (knowledge, soft skills and identities) in the period of secularization. The articles deal with schools and their status – private or public, religious or lay – with French examples, but also the study of a paradoxical case, in Tunisia, of parents choosing a French secular school for their children. They show that, since the Revolution, parents and institutions (state or church) have been negotiating to commingle educational, moral and religious or areligious transmission, in a search for fragile and temporary compromises. Simultaneously, the articles study initiatives emanating from churches to counter educational secularization and laicization, such as a reform of the catechism and events like the World Youth Day. Covering two centuries of history, this special issue shows that the secularization of society does not preclude religious transmission but leads to a diversification of its forms, with a renewed focus by religious actors into the public sphere.

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.

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.

Parution – Axel Hörstedt, “Latin Dissertations and Disputations in the Early Modern Swedish Gymnasium. A Study of a Latin School Tradition c. 1620-c 1820”, Göteborgs universitet, 2018

https://gupea.ub.gu.se/handle/2077/55897

This study is concerned with Latin dissertations and disputations in the early modern Swedish gymnasium in the period c. 1620 – c. 1820. Interest in early modern academic dissertations and disputations has increased during the last few decades and has generated a number of studies, while, on the other hand, gymnasial dissertations and disputations have not earned any scholarly attention at all, which makes this study the first of its kind. The aim is to give an overview of the practice of disputations in Swedish gymnasiums and also (to some extent) in primary schools. Characteristics and functions of printed gymnasial dissertations are analyzed and discussed, through consideration of typographic appearance, distribution in time, and choice of subject, as well as the role of the different participants (respondent, opponent, praeses and audience) and the question of authorship. Particular attention is paid to the social role of gymnasial dissertations by examination of paratexts (social peritexts), such as dedications, prefaces and congratulatory poetry. The primary material consists of almost 790 printed dissertations. The study contributes to our understanding of disputation culture and dissertations in general, by adding the gymnasial aspect of early modern Swedish dissertations and disputations, a previously overlooked text type. Numerous texts samples of the Neo-Latin used in gymnasial dissertations are also given. It is concluded that the act of disputation was an important didactic element in early modern Swedish education from the early seventeenth century until the beginning of the nineteenth century. Subjects of gymnasial dissertations corresponded to a high degree with the subjects of the gymnasial curriculum. The study covers a period of roughly two hundred years, meaning that it has been possible to notice diachronic changes in the material regarding choice of subjects as well as typographical features. Gymnasial dissertations in the seventeenth century were in general comprehensive, academic-like works which often included paratexts (dedications, congratulatory verses etc.). However, by the mid-eighteenth century almost all dissertations were short theses without paratexts. This study also provides a catalogue of printed gymnasial dissertations from the beginning of the 1620s to 1799.

http://uu.diva-portal.org/smash/record.jsf?pid=diva2%3A1339304&dswid=6898

This thesis study how women in 18th century Sweden used reading and writing and how these skills could be a source of income. Historians have studied how many could read during this period or how writing was taught in the parish school. How these skills were used have, however, been overlooked. The main questions are: How, and in which circumstances, did women use reading and writing? Who were these women? What type of return did reading and writing have?

To study how literacy was used is not without difficulty. The traces are often scattered in different types of source material. Several types of sources material have therefore been analyzed. Material like moving certificates, funeral sermons, personals, account books, verifications, church protocols, contracts, court records, recipes amongst others have been used.

This thesis shows that women used reading and writing in different ways. There were not a question of one type of literacy but different types of literacies – it depended on the situation. A writing ability that was limited in one situation could be sufficient in another. By focus on social practice, this thesis argues that women´s reading and writing could have different types of return depending on individual and situation.

En portant l’attention sur les lieux de production et de transmission des savoirs, en redonnant toute leur place aux acteurs locaux et aux configurations territoriales, cet ouvrage met en évidence un système d’enseignement scientifique et technique moins rigide et moins cloisonné, mais aussi plus riche et plus complexe qu’il n’y paraît au premier abord. Il conduit à se départir d’une conception encore trop mécaniste de la mise en œuvre et des effets des politiques nationales comme de l’action des élites savantes, du XVIIIe au XXe siècle. Il se veut ainsi une invitation à se saisir d’une démarche qui renouvelle le regard sur les dynamiques à l’œuvre, tant au niveau des acteurs, individuels et collectifs, que des institutions et des savoirs qui s’y enseignent et s’y apprennent.

Français

Dans une double perspective, le livre raconte l’histoire de la faculté de droit de Cagliari depuis les plans de fondation de l’université au XVIe siècle jusqu’à l’unification de l’Italie : comme lieu de formation des juristes et, en étroite corrélation, comme carrefour pour l’accès aux postes et aux professions et pour une position privilégiée au sein de la polis. D’où les questions qui concernent, d’une part, les aspects de l’enseignement (le nombre d’étudiants, les cours, la fréquentation des conférences, les manuels, les bibliothèques, les examens, du point de vue des étudiants ; le recrutement, les engagements académiques, les outils pédagogiques, les horizons scientifiques et les méthodes, du point de vue des enseignants) ; d’autre part, l’impact sur le tissu social, selon des courants culturels dont la Faculté est l’expression et qu’elle contribue à son tour à mettre en œuvre. Même en temps de crise, la Faculté a fonctionné comme un dépositaire de connaissances juridiques, a communiqué avec le monde des professions et des institutions, et a formé des élites.

Premier volume d’une histoire qui se poursuivra jusqu’à nos jours, et fruit de la collaboration de chercheurs aux compétences différentes, le livre aborde les principaux problèmes historiographiques avec de nouvelles recherches archivistiques et une approche comparative : la ferveur après la fondation, la réduction de sa fonction dans les décennies suivantes, la refondation laborieuse par Bogini, les juristes “jacobins”, la faculté de masse dans les années autour de la “fusion parfaite”. Et, tout en reconstruisant un itinéraire dont le thème dominant semble être celui de la formation du juriste de droit national, il propose également de nouvelles questions.

Italien

Sotto una duplice angolazione il libro racconta la storia della Facoltà di Giurisprudenza di Cagliari dai progetti cinquecenteschi di fondazione dell’ateneo fino all’Unità: come luogo di formazione del giurista e, in stretta correlazione, come momento di snodo per l’accesso alle cariche, alle professioni e per una collocazione privilegiata entro la polis. Da qui le domande che riguardano, da un lato, gli aspetti dell’insegnamento (il numero degli studenti, i corsi, la frequenza alle lezioni, i manuali, le biblioteche, gli esami, dal punto di vista dei discenti; il reclutamento, gli impegni accademici, gli strumenti didattici, gli orizzonti scientifici e di metodo, nell’ottica dei docenti); dall’altro gli impatti nel tessuto sociale, secondo indirizzi culturali di cui la Facoltà era espressione e che a sua volta contribuiva a implementare. Anche nei momenti di crisi, essa operava come deposito di conoscenza giuridica, dialogava con il mondo delle professioni e delle istituzioni, formava le élites.

Primo volume di una storia che arriverà fino ai giorni nostri e frutto della collaborazione di studiosi dalle competenze diverse, il libro affronta con nuove ricerche archivistiche e con sguardo comparatistico i principali problemi storiografici: il fervore dopo la fondazione, la reductio della sua funzione nei decenni successivi, la faticosa rifondazione boginiana, i giuristi “giacobini”, la Facoltà di massa negli anni a ridosso della “fusione perfetta”. E, mentre ricostruisce un itinerario in cui il tema dominante appare quello della formazione del giurista del diritto patrio, propone anche questioni nuove.

https://www.comares.com/libro/historiar-la-educacion-de-las-mujeres-en-tiempos-de-cambio-siglos-xvii-xx_129266/

Français

Ce livre vise à historiciser, à travers une pluralité de réflexions analytiques aux approches novatrices, le processus évolutif de l’éducation féminine synchronisé avec les changements idéologiques, politiques et institutionnels, affectés par la transversalité des mentalités.

L’ensemble des propositions des auteurs, avec leurs propres critères de recherche et catégories d’analyse, nous permet de tracer un itinéraire qui révèle comment les femmes ont été éduquées du XVIe siècle à la Deuxième République. Des études qui ont abordé le sujet sous différents angles et qui mettent en évidence l’incidence des changements temporels en termes de discours politiques sur la domesticité, de pédagogies adoptées et d’institutions éducatives faisant partie des systèmes chargés de l’éducation des femmes au cours des quatre siècles en question.

De même, d’une certaine manière, ils désignent l’idéologie politique sur la condition des femmes et leur accès à la connaissance, le degré d’implication – en termes de scolarisation de la population féminine – des organes gouvernementaux et du cadre institutionnel, ainsi que de la société elle-même qui a servi de cadre, comme les principales causes de la déficience séculaire de l’éducation reçue par les femmes, et des inégalités par rapport aux hommes.

De cette manière, les contributions de ce volume ont permis de construire une séquence historique pour rendre visible l’évolution de l’éducation féminine dans la période étudiée. Une histoire qui est également susceptible de devenir le point de départ d’une enquête sur le nombre de facteurs examinés qui subsistent dans les sociétés d’aujourd’hui, comme autant de vetos qui empêchent la réalisation d’une égalité effective dans l’éducation des femmes.

Espagnol

Este libro pretende historiar, mediante una pluralidad de reflexiones analíticas con planteamientos innovadores, el proceso evolutivo de la educación femenina sincrónico a los cambios ideológicos, políticos e institucionales, afectados por la transversalidad de las mentalidades.

La totalidad de las propuestas de las autoras, con sus propios criterios de investigación y categoría de análisis, permiten trazar un itinerario que desvela cómo fueron educadas las mujeres desde el Seiscientos a la Segunda República. Estudios que han abordado el tema desde varias perspectivas, y que ponen de manifiesto la incidencia de los cambios temporales en cuanto a los discursos políticos sobre las domesticidades, las pedagogías adoptadas, y las instituciones docentes que formaron parte de los sistemas que tenían a su cargo la educación de las mujeres en los cuatro siglos contemplados.
Asimismo, de alguna manera, señalan al ideario político acerca de la condición de las mujeres y su acceso al conocimiento, al grado de implicación -en cuanto a escolarización de la población femenina- de las instancias gubernativas y del entramado institucional, así como a la propia sociedad que le sirvió de marco, como causas principales de la secular educación deficiente recibida por las mujeres, y de las desigualdades con respecto a la masculina.

Con ello, las contribuciones que integran este volumen han permitido construir una secuencia histórica para visibilizar el devenir de la educación femenina en el periodo estudiado. Una historia susceptible también de constituirse en el punto de partida para indagar cuántos de aquellos factores revisados todavía permanecen en las sociedades actuales, a modo de vetos que impiden alcanzar la igualdad efectiva en la educación de las mujeres.

Parution – Vladislav Rjéoutski et Willem Frijhoff (eds.), “Language Choice in Enlightenment Europe. Education, Sociability, and Governance”, De Gruyter, 2018

This multinational collection of essays challenges the traditional image of a monolingual Ancient Regime in Enlightenment Europe, both East and West. Its archival research explores the important role played by selective language use in social life and in the educational provisions in the early constitution of modern society. A broad range of case studies show how language was viewed and used symbolically by social groups – ranging from the nobility to the peasantry – to develop, express, and mark their identities.

Parution – Adrian O’Connor, “In pursuit of politics. Education and revolution in eighteenth-century France”, Manchester UP, 2017

This book offers a new interpretation of the debates over education and politics in the early years of the French Revolution. This period witnessed a series of amazingly ambitious efforts to reform and reinvent the nation’s political institutions, cultural politics, and social order. Deputies, political commentators, and private citizens alike recognized that reinventing French politics and transforming French society would require rethinking the principles and practices of education. The book aims to recapture the dynamism of this polyvalent debate and to flesh out the ambitions and dilemmas that gave it meaning during this most turbulent of historical moments. It traces an ambivalent strain in Enlightenment thought on education, a deep tension at the point of contact between seemingly limitless philosophical possibilities and the apparent limitations imposed by political and social realities. The book analyses the debate over education amid broader concerns about the nature and efficacy of representative government and the nascent idea of “public instruction” from its emergence as a revolutionary ambition through efforts to fulfill the constitutional promise of national education. It argues for a new understanding of “public instruction” as a pedagogical and political ideal and, with that, a revised sense of education’s role in regenerating France and in working towards a representative and participatory system of government. The book also focuses on letters and proposals submitted by people affiliated or associated with the schools and related institutions. Finally, it surveys the changes the “education question” took on an explicitly republican form after September 1792.

Parution – James P. Cousins, “Horace Holley: Transylvania University and the Making of Liberal Education in the Early American Republic”, 2016

The life of Horace Holley (1781–1827) recalls a time of intellectual promise in the American republic. The New England–born, Yale-educated, Unitarian minister was an unlikely choice for the presidency of Transylvania University in Kentucky, the first college west of the Allegheny Mountains. Kentucky’s religious leaders questioned his orthodoxy; elected officials doubted his abilities; others simply found him arrogant and elitist. As president, however, Holley ushered in a period of sustained educational and cultural growth. Transylvania blossomed under his oversight and received national attention for its scientifically progressive, liberal curriculum. Lexington, Kentucky, the seat of Transylvania, benefited directly from his efforts. An influx of students and celebrated faculty lent the city a distinguished atmosphere and gave credibility to the appellation “Athens of the West.” But Holley’s story is greater than the sum of these experiences. As a young student at a rising American university, a Calvinist minister in a rural New England town, a Unitarian urbanite of national acclaim, a relocated northern Yankee in Kentucky, and president of the first and most prosperous university of the early American West, Holley symbolizes a period of rapid transformation. His experiences reflect a time when westward expansion and social progress ran against developing religious expectations and regional identities. Holley also figures prominently in the history of education in America. His innovations and missteps, successes and defeats, personal connections and bitter advisories make him an important figure not only in the evolution of an emerging state university but also in the emerging state of higher education in early America.

Parution – Walter C. Stern, “Race and Education in New Orleans: Creating the Segregated City, 1764–1960”, Louisiana Sate UP, 2018

Surveying the two centuries that preceded Jim Crow’s demise, Race and Education in New Orleans traces the course of the city’s education system from the colonial period to the start of school desegregation in 1960. Walter C. Stern’s timely historical analysis reveals that public schools in New Orleans both suffered from and maintained the racial stratification that characterized urban areas for much of the twentieth century.

By taking a long view of the interplay between education, race, and urban change, Stern underscores the fluidity of race as a social construct and the extent to which the Jim Crow system evolved through a dynamic though often improvisational process.

Parution – Jill Sperandio, “Pioneering Education for Girls across the Globe. Advocates and Entrepreneurs, 1742-1910”, Rowman & Littlefield, 2018

The mid-18th to the early 20th century saw growing interest in the education of girls from all social classes in all regions of the world. During this time period of expanding empires and international travel, pioneering girls’ schools were established by educational entrepreneurs, predominantly men, supported by dedicated women school administrators and teachers who ensured the smooth operation of the schools and well-being of the girls attending them. The schools preceded national and local interest in educating girls, and frequently encountered resistance from the communities they sought to serve for the challenge and potential disruption they threatened to the existing gendered social order.

The author examines six of these pioneering girls’ schools drawing her case studies from Britain, Colonial America, Singapore, India, Azerbaijan and Uganda. Placing each school in its geographical and historical setting, she analyses the driving forces that led their founders to undertake the oft-difficult task of funding and promoting the schools. Beliefs and gendered stereotypes regarding the roles of women in society posed further difficulties as did the conflicting educational ideologies, quality and attainment expectations to be negotiated in developing curriculum for the schools.

On the global level, the school case studies illustrate how imperial expansion, and oft-accompanying religious missionary activity, exposed previously isolated communities in very diverse environments and social contexts to new ideas and influences creating tensions between desires for change and modernization and fears of loss of ethnic community. The author concludes by considering the ongoing importance of local agency, activism and social entrepreneurship in creating awareness of the need for quality education for girls in many parts of the world today.
