History of Education




Prof. Dr. Marcelo Caruso

In all cultures, education, upbringing and socialization are controversial practices. They not only take place in a social context; they also have changeful, tense pasts that continue to determine them. In the Department of Historical Educational Research, we are interested in this history and research it. However, the journey into these pasts is motivated and critically accompanied by, among other things, our urgent questions about the present. Therefore, we would like to understand our investigations as alternative paths on which we deal with current theoretical and practical educational dilemmas and pedagogical controversies. We undertake these journeys in the form of research projects, teaching events, conferences and international collaborations.
