The Social History of the Classroom


Ian Grosvenor, Martin Lawn and Kate Rousmaniere

This collection of essays is drawn from a series of international seminars in which participants explored different methodologies for writing the social history of the classroom. Essays in the collection address questions of research methodology and approach in writing the history of education, drawing on oral history, photographs, architecture, letters, and diaries. The authors explore the different ways in which historians might use different methodologies and sources. In so doing they raise different questions about history and historical practice.
