We would like to commission scholars from the twenty-eight countries that currently make up EERA to produce a small ‘essay’ or conversation piece of around 500 words on education in their country (in the largest possible sense of the word) based on the content of one or two photographs. The photographs will have been taken at any time from the late nineteenth century up to the late twentieth century.
***We especially welcome contributions that address Armenia, Belarus, Czech Republic, Iceland, Poland and Slovakia are very welcome.***
If you are interested in participating in this project can you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photographs and corresponding ‘essays’ should then be sent to the same address before March 1st 2014.
Together with the images and the text we also ask that copyright issues should be sorted. This should be done by inserting the following message in the general body of your e-mail: “I hereby do declare that all copyright issues have been sorted”. Please also note that images should be of sufficient quality (at least 300 dpi). If one of these requirements is not fulfilled, we will not be able to consider your picture for publication in the e-book.
This project fits within Network 17’s tradition of exploring and highlighting the potential for (teaching and researching) educational histories by means of underused sources such as visual images, material artefacts, built environments etc., and of innovative theories and methodologies addressing them. The e-book will be officially launched at the next ECER (European Conference for Education Research) in Porto.
In the hope that you would like to take part in this electronic/visual conversation,
We remain sincerely yours,
Helena Ribeiro de Castro (link convenor NW 17), Béatrice Haenggeli-Jenni, Catherine Burke, Geert Thyssen, Ian Grosvenor & Pieter Verstraete
