Welcome to the History of Education Society
MAKE PLANS FOR THE 2013 HISTORY OF EDUCATION SOCIETY MEETING
The next meeting of the History of Education Society will soon be upon us. As you wrap up this semester and beginning for the fall remember to mark your calendars now. The 2013 HES meeting will be Thursday, October 31-Sunday, November 3, 2013 at the Nashville, Loews Vanderbilt Hotel. Yes, we are starting on Halloween!
We have received proposals for some first-rate papers and panels and the review process should be complete by early June with the program available in mid-July.
In addition to the normal range of excellent scholarly presentations we will have special sessions on the teaching of the History of Education, the relationship of the discipline to public policy, sessions for graduate students, time to remember members of our society who are no longer with us, and of course our annual presidential address by our own Adah Ward Randolph of Ohio University.
Scott Baker is making arrangements for the book display which will give everyone a chance to see—and buy—some of the latest publications in our field. Catherine Gavin Loss, Christopher Loss, and Ansley Erickson are coordinating local arrangements which will include a chance to visit some of the many universities and historic sites in the Nashville area.
Save the date and plan to join us.
