Through the study of History of Pedagogy the student will be able to achieve the following training objectives:
1) In terms of knowledge and understanding, the awareness of the epistemological foundations of the history of pedagogical ideas
2) In terms of ability to apply the acquired knowledge, the ability to critically analyze the relationship between pedagogical ideas and different educational practices;
3) In terms of autonomy of judgment, the ability to evaluate how much of the past survives in present educational contexts;
4) In terms of learning and research abilities, to increase the knowledge of the most recent cognitive pathways in the field of history of pedagogy and education;

Programme

The course will be articulated in a general part and a workshop part.
The general part will tackle, in the first semester, the main authors of the history of education of modern and contemporary age through the analysis of the principal schools of thought.
In the first semester the workshop part will be dedicated to the analysis of some specific themes of history of education in contemporary age.
The educational thought of Antonio Gramsci will be studied in-depth through the reading of a particularly relevant place concerning the prison notes, the Notebook 12, in which Gramsci outlines his idea of school and education in opposition to the model offered by Giovanni Gentile’s Reform of 1923. Still in the first semester the workshop activity will tackle, through the reading of Carmela Covato’s book “Pericoloso a dirsi”, the impact, on the history of education level, of a new frontier of research relative to the history of emotion, which has created a real revolution in the way the sources of the past are looked at. It consists of a real “enlargement” of a prospective that, already identified in the Thirties by the historiographical revolution carried out by the review «Les Annales» achieves to outline a history of sensitivity that definitively emancipates itself from a “teleological” vision of the civilization process and from a transposition of psychology into history. This new awareness, outside any intimist tendency, has subtracted emotion and feelings from a history deprived dimension. It’s exactly from the analysis of family and private contexts, intended as a labyrinth of educational relations and as a privileged space for the manifestation of coercitive identitary rules,- also through the use of a new type of documentation such as autobiographies, literary narrations, diaries, pictorial and iconographic representations,- that a transgenerational element connected to the transmission of educational codes emerges.
In the second semester the workshop activity will continue focusing especially on the educational thought of one of the major authors of the Twentieth century, John Dewey. A particularly significant work of the American pedagogist will be analysed, The School and Society, in which Dewey, putting school in relation with the social process in its entirety, outlines the idea of the formation of a new democratic citizen endowed with scientific spirit and a historical and critical sense.
