The long 20th century education reform

During 2021, the education reform-network organizes a series of seminars (one per month) engaging with central question at present concerning reform in education, including the role of nation and nationalism in education. The seminars will be held via Zoom.
The Research network Reforms in Education aims as the main theoretical result to further development of a concept of educational reform that can be applied to different national contexts, for international comparisons and the analysis of policy or knowledge transfer over time.
