Selected Highlights of the HES Annual Meeting: Part I--An Introduction
<h5>[Editor's Notes: This message comprises Part I of a five-part review of the HES 2003 Annual Meeting, published by H-Education the week of 8-12 March 2004. Both reviewers presented papers at the HES 2003 conference. Lewis has refrained from reviewing her own panel, while Hinitz has included hers, clearly labeled, in the following review.]</h5> <p> The following review captures some of the highlights of the panels and special forums of the <i>History of Education Society (US) 2003 Annual Meeting</i>. Two of us shared the responsibility for this review, and while our divide and conquer approach to attending and reviewing panels allowed us to cover a large number and wide range of presentations, inevitably, we missed a few. What follows is a selection of those panels that were most relevant to our personal scholarly interests. <p> Thus, in Part II of this review, Heather Lewis reviews sessions related to the history of educational inequality and movements for social justice in education; in Parts III and IV, Blythe Hinitz reviews sessions related to Chicago, early education and development and several time periods in American history. On the whole, we have attempted to contextualize the panel reviews within the current public discourse about the history of educational equity that permeates the anniversary celebrations of <cite>Brown v Board</cite>. While the themes of the conference were quite broad, most of the sessions shared a common focus that explored, either explicitly or implicitly, the diverse ways in which educational institutions and initiatives went about educating "the Other." <p> This review will be published in five parts (including this introduction) on successive days. A table of contents of the remaining parts of this review appears below. <p> *Part II: Complicating the History of <cite>Brown</cite>: Before and After (Heather Lewis)<br>--Panel: Integrating the "the Other" into American Education <br>- Panel: Preparing Teachers: Programmatic Perspectives <br>- Discussion: Needs and Opportunities in American Public School Library History <br>- Lunch With Past HES Presidents <br>- Panel: Case Studies of Education in Michigan <br>- Panel: Historical Challenges to Historically Black Colleges and Universities <br>- Friendly Critic Session: The Subordination of Popular Interests in <cite>Brown v.
