Neue Publikation: Exhibiting the Past

Public Histories of Education


Short description 

In recent years, historians of education have moved beyond traditional publication formats and venues such as school museums to communicate their research findings to a wider public. Indeed, they have started to explore and experiment with new ways of presenting the educational past in the present, and they have reflected on how these new forms of mediation and musealisation of sources impact historical research and the (hi)stories told.By zooming in on three themes – musealisation, new ways of exhibiting, and historical storytelling –, this edited volume illustrates the vitality of the history of education as a field of study as well as its adaptability to the “changing contexts” of its public function.
