For historians of education, the notion of generations has been a powerful organising concept, sometimes engaged explicitly, often implicitly. Schools, for example, have been written about as part of the formation of new generations, and as mediating generational disruptions and continuities of educational ideas, professional norms, family expectations, new and experienced teachers – and more. For the 2020 ANZHES conference, convenors invite you to consider ‘generations and generational change’ from a multitude of historical perspectives and questions. Thematic and topic areas can encompass a focus on concepts and theorising, or a particular generation/s, or processes of generational change understood broadly – ideas, systems, networks, people and governance.
