Women in European adult education in 1860–1910s

Langue: EN

Posté par Hakan YANDIM

As its title highlights, this special issue of “Pedagogika Społeczna” focuses on women in the history of adult education. Today, similarly as in other domains of knowledge or activity, historians are returning to the past to re-visit some of its insufficiently studied areas (Duby, Perrot, Fraisse, 1994). In numerous European countries the place occupied by women in the development of adult education used to be one of research topics attracting least attention. An examination of female adult educators’ contributions will help to cast new light on the diversity of adult education as a whole, as well as on the variety of its audience, contents, methods, and purposes. Assorted recent publications reveal this topical interest and a  wide range of findings. However, such works are rarely transnational. The presented issue of “Pedagogika Społeczna” intends to accept the challenge to pursue the theme upon a European level in order to seek similarities, but also to emphasize differences determined by historical contexts, cultural backgrounds, and, naturally, social roles assigned to women. All these conditions could vary greatly depending on a  given country
