Historical Research in Educational Settings Summary


Historical Research in Educational Settings by Gary McCulloch

* What is historical research in education?

* How can researchers get started in this area?

* Why does this field offer a common project for historians, educationists, and researchers across the social sciences?

This book explores how to set about historical research in education. The first general guide of its kind for fifty years, the book locates this field in relation to changes in educational research, historical research, and a wide range of social sciences. It offers a theoretical guide to the rationales and problems of the field as well as to current opportunities for research. It also gives practical advice for getting started and for suitable research methods in different kinds of projects, and in doing so draws critically on extensive international literature. It includes detailed case studies on the following topics in historical research: Curriculum and Classrooms, Foucauldian Interpretations, the 'Alternative Road', Literacy in the Nineteenth Century, and the University History Curriculum.
