The next European Conference on Educational Research will be held in Dublin from 23 to 26 August 2016. The conference will be devoted to ‘Leading education: The distinct contribu- tions of educational research and researchers’. While Network 17: Histories of education is known for favouring proposals in all but the classical paper format, especially when they centre on unde- rexplored sources, new theories and methodologies, it also wel- comes submissions that directly address the conference’s overall theme. In this case, ‘Leading education’ can function as a subject of historical analysis or as a prism through which one can re ect on the diverse theories and methods that may help to advance the history of educational research in particular and the history of education in general.
