Welcome to the History of Education Society
HES seeks New Home for HEQ Journal
Dr. Ronald Butchart’s text Schooling the Freed People: Teaching, Learning and the Struggle for Black Freedom, 1861-1876 (UNC Press) is now available in paperback! Dr. Butchart’s research was recognized by HES in 2011 when he received the Outstanding Book Award. So, if you did not purchase the hard bound copy, then please purchase the paperback edition to add to your collection on the history of education. Congratulations Ronald!
Endowment Fund: Did you know that HES has an endowment fund? Well, we do. Please consider contributing to the fund. The fund subsidizes conference costs incurred by graduate students and unemployed historians. Please send your tax-deductible contributions to our Treasurer, Dr. Ralph Kidder, Vice President for Financial Affairs, Marymount University, 2807 N Glebe Rd, Arlington, VA22207. If you have any questions, email Ralph at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us support our future colleagues!
Amanda Frasier, a National Board Certified English Teacher, and an Erickson Research Fellow in the Education Policy Department at Michigan State University had her paper accepted to publish at the upcoming International Standing Committee for the History of Education (ISCHE) in Riga, Latvia. Congratulations Amanda!
