Call for Papers ISCHE Workshop, Beijing 19-21 August 2015

We are pleased to announce that an ISCHE Regional Workshop on “Transnational Entanglements in Education: East Asia and the “West” since the 18th century” will be held in Beijing, China 19-21 August, 2015, co-organized by the School of Education of Beijing Normal University.  The conference will take place a week before the 22 International Congresses of Historical Sciences to be held in Jinan, China.

Focusing on the period from the eighteenth century onwards, the workshop proposes to bring together East Asian historians of education and those from other continents. We invite scholars to present their current research on the connections and relationships in education between East Asia and other parts of the world. We encourage proposals that grapple with key methodological and historiographical debates in the field addressed. Local, regional, national, and inter/ transnational levels of analysis will be welcomed.

The conference proposes to build up a conversation between scholars from all over the world. It not only aims at enhancing a comparative perspective but also at creating a wider research network among scholars from East Asia and other parts of the world.  Participants from outside China will have to fund and arrange their own travel. We will try to provide free accommodation. Please send paper proposals of 300 words and a short CV by 31 December 2014 to Zhang Bin-Xian, and Eckhardt Fuchs,
