The History of Education Society’s website is being revamped to celebrate the Society’s 50th birthday in 2017. How do you want it to look? As one of the Society’s Peter Gosden Fellows, I’m looking for ideas and suggestions from current and prospective members about the new site by the end of April. If you have any thoughts on the questions below, please do get in touch with me at


  • To provide information about the Society’s aims, membership, publications, conferences, awards, prizes and bibliographical resources
  • To promote the field more generally
  • To be the first point of call for researchers in the history of education, including undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • To facilitate the development of a community of scholars with a shared interest

Are there any other aims? What is the most important function of the site?


  • Current members
  • Prospective members
  • Researchers and students in related fields

Do you think the website should be used to try to attract a more diverse audience- such as historians across the board, schools, media, public? And if so, how?


Do you have any photographs of conferences or other History of Education Society events we can use for the new website?
