Podcast: The History of Knowledge and the History of Education

Tamson Pietsch and Joel Barnes have participated in the History of Education Society UK Podcast to talk about their work on the connections—and tensions—between the fields of the history of knowledge and the history of education. They discuss how the focus and methods of the history of knowledge can help us think through how knowledge is produced and legitimated; understand the role of institutions; and develop our perspectives on post-colonial and indigenous knowledges. 

They also mention the recent collaborative seminar, “History of knowledge meets history of education”, held jointly the Australian Centre for Public History and LUCK, on 18 November 2020. The History of Education Review will publish a special issue on the history of knowledge and the history of education in 2022.

Dr. Tamson Pietsch is Associate Professor in Social and Political Sciences at the University of Technology Sydney and Director of the Australian Centre for Public History. Dr. Joel Barnes is Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Queensland.
