- The aim of the symposium, which connects school museums and researchers into the history of education, is to present and explore the professional historical contribution of male and women teachers and particularly their associations to the development of schools and pedagogy, as well as to cultural and general development. Teacher associations united the teaching profession in the establishment of their (trade union) interests, had a significant influence on the development of teacher education (including their adult and continuing education) and, through teaching and educational publications of different ideological orientations, helped to shape the development of education. Teachers’ gatherings, publishing activities and the appearance of school museums were among the most important forms of activity.

- Teacher associations and their regional, national (ethnic), state and international connections went beyond the local importance of
frequently very diverse activities. They were marked in particular by individual teachers who were important for a particular village, town or wider region. Through changes that took place over time, we can also discern the differing importance attributed to the teaching profession, which is why we also encourage comparative analyses of the role of teachers and their associations. Contributions offering an overview of a wider region or even a whole country are particularly welcome, as are presentations and analyses of archive and museum material and, above all, insights into our museums through an analysis of exhibitions on this subject.

- The theme of teachers, teacher associations and their work and other connections in education is directed at specialists working in museums both large and small and in other collections related to school and education, as well as at researchers and lecturers who are involved in the history of education at universities, institutes and in archives.

-The presentation of museological news of the family of education / school museums and successful museum projects regards to the history of education are welcome.

- The working language of the conference is English. Paper presentations should last between 15-20 minutes, including 3-5 minutes
discussions after presentation atplenary sessions and 90-minute parallel sections.

- The “Babel Section”: Only one 90-minute session of the parallel sections (each with a maximum of 4 to 5 presentations) will take place in three groups for participants from the Germanic, Romance and Slavic language areas in one of these languages.

Please note that the ‘Babel Section’ is designed first of all for the colleagues who work at small school museums without earlier
experiences with English, the lingua franca of the modern era.
