The conference, THEORY AND DATA IN CURRICULUM, HISTORY AND EDUCATIONAL STUDIES has been held yearly, rotating among Stanford University, The University of Vienna, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to faculty from these universities, there will participants from universities who will join the discussions.
The conference provides an international interchange to think historically about the problems of education, to explore the nature of its scholarship, and to encourage collaboration to think comparatively about European and North American educational systems, with also the exploration of their intersections with historical contexts. The conference has three points of reference. One is to provide PhD students with the unique forum in which to engage in a dialogue concerning theory, methods, and the substantive conclusions related to their research. Second is to provide public lectures for the general research community related to current European and comparative research of the participating faculty. Third is to provide points of mutual research interest that can be productive for further research, publication and professional conference participation.
