ICHRE Online History of Education Research Conference, Thursday 9 July 2020

We are delighted to welcome you to our virtual conference! We have organised this event to help maintain contacts between researchers in the history of education in the UK and in different parts of the world, and also to highlight new research and current publications and projects in the history of education. Owing to the large level of interest, we will be running the event on Microsoft Teams with a mix of plenary sessions and parallel sessions. We have created an interactive programme to enable delegates to access each session.

Please see the interactive programme (pdf) here and interactive programme (word) here. The full book of abstracts for each session is here. You may find the following document helpful in using Teams Technical info for delegates.

Please help ICHRE plan future sessions by completing the short conference evaluation survey. Thank you!
