"Schooling Desire: Modern Pedagogies and Nation-Building in Germany"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "The GIAR funding I was granted in Spring 2013 helped to offset expenses I incurred while conducting research in Germany and Austria on an anthology I am co-editing, originally entitled Schooling Desire: Modern Pedagogies and Nation-Building in Germany. These funds allowed me to access primary and secondary source materials at several libraries, archives and museums in Munich and Vienna, among them the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, the Ludwig-Maximilian Universitätsarchiv, the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek and the Albertina Museum in Vienna. Part of this material, which includes contemporary reactions to educational reform policies and pedagogies employed by German schools and universities during the turn of the last century, is shaping both the introduction and the chapter I am writing for the volume. Since educational theory during this period also engaged the then emerging field of psychology and what Freud, among others, wrote about schooling and the development of the self, my visit to the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna will now inform this project as well. I am grateful to the Research Council for supporting this endeavor, which will contribute to our broader understanding of educational institutions and classroom spaces as public sites where inward transformations central to the cultivation of national identity occur."
