The Scholarship of the International Encyclopaedia of Education 1980 – 1994: Learning how to Produce Knowledge in a Public genre
2016 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The International Encyclopaedia of Education (IEE) from 1985, and thoroughly revised in 1994, had as its ambition to be the first true international encyclopaedia of education. This meant being a comprehensive collection of all relevant educational knowledge from around the world; breaking with ethnocentrism and reaching out to educational systems in the Third World. The purpose of this paper is to provide an understanding of the re/production of encyclopaedic knowledge of international education. A special attention is given to issues of curriculum representations in the IEE and therefor 60 country system reports are compared and analyzed. The paper also draws upon a close reading of a unique archive material consisting of meeting protocols and editorial correspondence between 1980-1994.
