Origins and traditions in comparative education: Challenging some assumptions

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Comparative education is two centuries old. Many mainstream historical narratives claim that the field began with the iconic opus of Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris (1817). This article offers to re-theorise the histories of comparative education. It suggests casting a far-sighted and panoramic look at the field’s origins. An underlying assumption in these histories is the embeddedness of comparative education in ever-changing world orders. The paper concludes with a puzzle for future work on a global history of comparative education. Copyright © 2018 CESHK.
