History of education and pedagogy

The Department’s research in this area focuses mainly on history of education in the second half of the 20th century in the area of what is now the Czech Republic, socialist education being an underexplored and sensitive topic in this history. Our research project focusing on exploring lives of basic schools and their teachers during the so-called Normalization (1969-1989) is the first of its kind in Czech educational sciences. The project proposes an original methodology, combining oral history with archival research.
