Research Group on Historical, Theoretical and Comparative Pedagogy
The operation of the Research Group for Historical, Theoretical and Comperative Education primarily focuses on the researches relating to the science of education. These research topics can be divided into three research directions. The first one is the research of the history of science of education. The second research direction is the comparative and historical analysis of the theory of professionalization, in which we explore and compare the main trends of emergence of pedagogue professions. The third research direction is the history of alternative schooling, reform pedagogical methodologies and life reform movements. Fulfilling the research projects and disseminating the results of projects are supported by the continuous aiding of international and Hungarian research founds (NRSF, NRDIB, AÖU, TÁMOP). Thus, members of the research group are keen to publish in Hungarian and international journals relating to their specific subject. Peculiar form of the dissemination of research results is the exhibition (Rejtett történetek [Hidden stories]) in the Műcsarnok between late 2018 and early months of 2019. The exhibition complies with two main tasks, the scientific dissemination of the results for the benefit of the public and the unique form of providing a place for scientific discourses by exhibition guides for fellow-researchers and providing a place for international scientific conferences.
