Johannes Westberg (University of Groningen) is one of Europe’s rising historians of education.
We talk about his recent paper: “What we can learn from studying the past: The wonderful usefulness of history in educational research”, and consider the benefits of thinking more critically about sources of evidence, drawing on historical comparisons, and how history provides a valuable ‘psychological distance’ from emotive debates.
