Aims & Scope

Education’s Histories is borne out of a twin desire to look closely at learning and educative possibilities beyond the formal school as well as discuss explicitly how to find, recognize, and make sense of these possibilities through analog and digital means. While the call for a broad view of education history is not anything new, the methodological possibilities for historical inquiry in a digital environment are. Special attention will be given to these possibilities and their theoretical implications.

Orienting questions:

  • What does education look like? How do we recognize it when we sense it?
  • What processes and tools do we use to construct education histories?
