17 June 2010 (call for papers 1 May)
What constitutes ‘an education’? Learning? Teaching? Knowledge? 140 years ago the Elementary Education Act was passed in an attempt to provide free and universal schooling for all five to ten year olds. This workshop wants to reexamine the effects such an Act had on society as a whole. The event is hosted by Goldsmiths’ Department of History but papers are welcome from all disciplines, whether rooted in academic research or personal experience.
Abstracts or proposals of 200 words maximum by 1 May 2010 to firstname.lastname@example.org
