    • Pages: 115 - 136
      Abstract: Mussolini proposed the creation of a new man who was supposed to serve a general modernization of Italian society. To this end, fascism introduced to the masses in the political, economic, legal and, of course, cultural and educational system defended by fascist doctrine. This paper analyzes the cultural and educational policies developed by fascism in to build the new man. We study the values of this fascist man and the institutions responsible for that “creation” to show, finally, the limitations of these policies to achieve the expected results.

  • Making politics educational: the experience of the Scottish referendum on

    • Authors: Jim Crowther
      Pages: 163 - 185
      Abstract: In 2014 the issue of constitutional change in the UK brought about by an agreement between the UK and Scottish Government, for a referendum on Scottish independence, created the motivation for widespread political engagement with the formal political process. Scottish citizens – including newly enfranchised 16 and 17 year olds – were debating, discussing and disagreeing about opting out of one of the world’s richest countries. This was an unusual situation and one that nearly happened despite a hostile corporate, political and mainstream media response to the demand for independence. It would be a mistake, however, to assume that this movement for change was the result of narrow-minded nationalism. Although the Referendum result was that Scotland should remain in the UK the process also produced widespread politicization of ordinary people. The cultural politics of communities had engaged with the political culture of the state and the dialectic between the two generated educational experiences and opened up new political possibilities.

  • Of House Pension to Secondary School

    • Pages: 186 - 210
      Abstract: The historical events change the life of an educational institution. In case of the Royal Seminar of Vergara, as a consequence of numerous warlike, political, social and economic situations during almost hundred years, the establishment have lived a great number of variations in his organisation. In this work, we aim to approach a wide perspective study of this establishment. We consider that, in spite of the nominative changes or the alterations in the pedagogic profile of the Seminar, we are before the same institution from ends of the 18th century up to the half of the 19th century. To observe with major detail the evolution of this school, we have decided to centre our attention on the students, that is to say, on the principal agents of the institution. We have had the option to know the biographic paths of the students, which help us to consider if the historical changes have caused modifications in the social profile of the establishment or if, on the other hand, the Royal Seminar of Vergara continued appearing as the preferential option for the families that traditionally had sent to educate their childrens to the above mentioned institution.
