About this item

Focusing on the history of education in Ireland and Europe from the seventeenth century to the present, and written by scholars from a number of disciplines, this collection pursues new areas of inquiry and offers new perspectives on familiar topics. These include an investigation of the emergence of educational print prior to the establishment of the national-school system; the national-school system and the Irish language; the educational formation of the revolutionary generation; the impact of the introduction in Ireland of 'free' second-level education in the 1960s; elite transnational education in the nineteenth century; school architecture; and the experiences of second-level education in the twentieth century as revealed through the life histories of pupils. This volume also includes an extended introduction that locates the historiography of the history of education in Ireland in its international context. These are the proceedings of the eighth Seamus Heaney lectures series, delivered at St Patrick's College, DCU, in 2015. Contents include: James Kelly and Susan Hegarty (DCU), Introduction: writing the history of Irish education; James Kelly (DCU), Educational print and the emergence of mass education in Ireland, c.1650- c.1830; Nicholas Wolf (NYU), The national-school system and the Irish language in the nineteenth century; Ciaran O'Neill (TCD), Education, cosmopolitan cultural capital and European elites in the nineteenth century; David Fitzpatrick (TCD), Knowledge, belief and the Irish revolution: the impact of schooling; Catherine Burke (Cambridge U), Poetry, materialities and montage: towards new histories of twentieth-century school architecture; Judith Harford (UCD) and Tom O'Donoghue (U of Western Australia), Exploring the experience of secondary-school education in Ireland prior to the introduction of 'free' second-level education in 1967; and Audrey Bryan (DCU), (In)equality of opportunity and educational reform in Ireland in the 1960s.
