For 2016, the History of Education Society has appointed not one, but two Peter Gosden Fellowships! The purpose of the Peter Gosden Fellowship scheme is to establish a higher public profile for the History of Education Society, its associated publications and conferences, and other activities concerned with the study and teaching of the history of education both in the UK and abroad.

Annemarie Valdes has been appointed as the Peter Gosden Fellow with responsibility for maintaining and improving the Society’s social media presence utilising a weblog, Twitter and Facebook. Alice Kirke has been appointed as the Peter Gosden Fellow with responsibility for planning and co-ordinating the re-development of the History of Education Society website: http://www.historyofeducation.org.uk/.

Both Fellowships started on 1st January 2016 and are due to finish on 31st December 2016.

Both Fellows will receive: (1) £1,000 as an honorarium; (2) a year’s membership of the Society; and (3) free attendance at the Society’s annual conferences (i.e. the student and main conferences).
