Education across Europe - a photographic conversation

Network 17 (Histories of Education) is preparing a special e-publication to mark the 20th anniversary in 2014 of the foundation of EERA. We would like to commission scholars from the twenty-eight countries that currently make up EERA to produce a small ‘essay’ or conversation piece of around 500 words on education in their country (in the largest possible sense of the word) based on the content of one or two photographs. The photographs will have been taken at any time from the late nineteenth century up to the late twentieth century. These small essays and the respective photographs would then be published in the form of an e-book.
