Katarzyna Dormus, The Role of Historical-Educational Magazines in Shaping the History of Education as an Independent Academic Discipline
Summary: Just like with any academic field, the development of history of education as an academic discipline featured the emergence of specialized magazines. In the 19th century, there were multiple examples of Polish educational magazines publishing articles on historical-educational issues. This phenomenon reflected the development of history of education as an independent academic discipline. However, the first specialized historical-educational magazine – “Minerwa Polska” – was established only during the Second Polish Republic. After the Second World War, three other magazines – all of which are still being published – started to come out: “Przegląd Historyczno-Oświatowy,” “Rozprawy z Dziejów Oświaty” and “Biuletyn Historii Wychowania”. These magazines fulfill an informational role; they provide insights into the trends in academic research at the time and include information on the newest publications as well as the development of the academic field and various initiatives therein. As they include various reviews, these magazines also play a substantial role in opinion formation. Furthermore, they constitute a source of reflections on the current condition of history of education as an academic discipline. Finally, such magazines help to further integrate the community of historians of education.
