Abstract

This article chronicles the history of the journal European Education since its establishment in 1969 by placing it within the larger context of geopolitical changes of the twentieth century and the historical debates on theory and method in the field of comparative education. Drawing on quantitative and qualitative content analysis of 40 journal volumes (158 journal issues and 1,176 articles), the article explains how the journal attempted to return comparative education in the United States perspective to its original geographic epicenter, Western Europe, and provided a space for cross-national comparisons on pedagogical issues like curriculum. The article also demonstrates the various geopolitical pressures on the journal within a cold war and later a postsocialist framework. It concludes by looking at the future of journal by understanding its original purpose and the contemporary debates within comparative education.
