About the Book

Cultural History and Education brings together an outstanding group of the leading scholars in the study of the cultural history of education. These scholars, whose work represents a variety of national contexts from throughout Europe, Latin America, and North America, contribute to a growing body of work that seeks to re-think historical studies in education.


"A diverse collection of readings by scholars from three continents, this book develops a "cultural history" of education, the term being used to denote a Foucauldian, postmodern analysis of educational phenomena as cultural practices … The authors reject prevailing explanations - historicist, neo-Marxist, among others - as simplistic." -- The Journal of Educational Thought
