Theme: Celebration, Commemoration and Collaboration
When: November 10-November 12, 2017
Where: Winchester, United Kingdom

Registration is now open! Details can be found on this registration form

In 2017 as the History of Education Society (UK) celebrates 50 years of scholarship and international collaboration, we look forward to welcoming colleagues, friends, and those new to the field, to historic Winchester. It is time for celebration to recognise the distance travelled in the development of ideas, theories and practice in the history of education. It is also a time for looking forward to what the next fifty years may hold. Proposals are welcome for formal papers, workshops, symposia and posters on the themes of celebration, commemoration and collaboration.

We encourage authors to think creatively within the themes and to identify new directions. Proposals may include spatial, material and sensory methodologies, international, transnational, imperial and colonial perspectives using a range of sources, interpretations and theoretical approaches.

Postgraduate students are welcome to submit full proposals on conference themes. In addition, there will be a dedicated session for students to present 10 minute work in progress papers on their current research. A limited number of bursaries will be available, more details to follow.

Proposals should address aspects of commemoration, celebration and/or collaboration in the following:

  • Education as public history
  • Mapping the field
  • Institutional histories
  • Personal and political histories of education
  • Formal and informal education
  • Archives and objects

Abstracts of 250 words should be sent to the Centre for the History of Women’s Education at the University of Winchester:

The first call for papers closes March 31st, while the second call for papers closes July 31st. Please state which strand(s) your paper addresses.
