The University of Groningen and CIRSE (the Italian Centre for Research on History of Education) is organising a seminar on the rise of primary and secondary education across European regions in the last two centuries. The scientific committee encourages submissions from a broad range of disciplines that shed light on fundamental aspects of regional variation in schooling, its determinants and impact on social and economic development. These includes:

1. The spatial distribution of education (in terms of schools, enrolment levels, child-teacher ratios, absenteeism etc.)
2. Economy and the demand for schooling
3. Demography and education
4. Education reform and regional differences
5. School finance and teacher salaries
6. Gender educational inequality
7. The local history of schooling

You can send an extended abstract (c. 500 words) to gabriele.cappelli@unisi.it by September 30th, 2020. More information here
