Abstract [en]

The International Encyclopaedia of Education (IEE) edited by Husén and Postlethwaite 1985 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 chapter is to provide an understanding of the re/production of encyclopaedic knowledge of international education. Issues of representativeness in what is displayed as internationally valid knowledge and knowledge of international education is discussed. The chapter draws upon a close reading of archive material consisting of meeting protocols and editorial correspondence in the Torsten Husén personal archive at The National Archives, Sweden.
