  • Exchange teachers as "another link in binding the [British]
           Empire" in the interwar years

    • Authors: Kay Whitehead
      Abstract: This article focuses on “exchange teachers” from Great Britain plus Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa, these countries constituting the white settler dominions of the British Empire. Participants in the League of Empire’s exchange scheme were mostly white middle class women elementary teachers. Reports of their work in newspapers and magazines show that they used whiteness as a strategy to differentiate the lands and peoples they encountered during their year-long overseas appointment, as well as their experiences of education in government school systems that were underpinned by race thinking. At the same time, they affirmed the British Empire and white settler national identities. Ultimately, exchange teachers were implicated in a transnational politics of whiteness binding the white settler dominions to each other and to the imperial centre in the interwar years.

  • Gender and Power Constructions in Visual Political Reporting

    • Authors: Susanne Kinnebrock, Thomas Knieper
      Abstract: The analysis of visual presscoverage is still in the early stages of development, although politicalcommunication today is no longer logo-centered but mainly icon-centered. In ourpaper we first outline a method to analyze the meaning of journalistic picturesin a standardized way combining methodological insights from quantitativecontent analysis with findings from social psychology and (de-) constructivefeminist theory. In a second step we present the results of an analysis offront pages of German news magazines showing how “Cross-Sex-Typing” is appliedto mark political power or powerlessness.

  • The Autarky Francoism, Women And Physical Education

    • Authors: Gonzalo Ramírez-Macías
      Abstract: The subject of this paper consists on the ideal of women in Spain during Autarky francoism (1939-1959) and how it was transmitted through female Physical Education and sports (swimming, hockey, skiing, basketball and handball). At this time, female Physical Education and sports were directed by the Women Section, from where the ideal of women was transmitted. The research focuses on the concepts and values from different fields (political, professional, cultural, religious, etc.) which described women and determined their life during this period, and which showed through physical and sport activities specific to this gender.

  • The Comparative Physical Education in Spain (1806-1936)

    • Authors: Xavier Torrebadella Flix
      Abstract: In the academic, professional and popular institutionalization of the physical education in Europe, manifested during throughout the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century, Spain centralized a considerable attention to events beyond its borders. Spain tried to set examples and to import foreign models. The doctrinal and technical discussions about this issue caused an infinite number of allusions in the press, in specialized magazines and pedagogical and gymnastics literature. Thus during the first third of the XX century, the first studies about comparative physical education were presented. The description and interpretation of these documents enable us both to assess the impact and to understand the influence that the foreign education systems exercised in Spain.
