Ellen Key and the Birth of a new Children’s Culture [SPECIAL ISSUE]

This special issue is the result of a two-year research project funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences) entitled "Ellen Key: Creating an European Identity ” (www.rj.se/Forskningsnyheter/Forskaren/2014/Forskrnatverk-kring-Ellen-Key/) and analyzes the ideas of Ellen Key, and their impact on the development of Childhood Pedagogy in Europe since the twentieth century. At present, the research network is working on a new edition of Barnets Århundrade [The Century of the Child], Ellen Key’s most famous book.
The articles are presented by scholars belonging to different disciplines (History of Education, Architecture, History of Literature, Women's History, History of Philosophy, History of Religion, Pedagogy, Didactics, Sociology of Education) and from different universities in Europe (Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Germany, Czech Republic and Italy).
According to an interdisciplinary perspective, articles deal with the importance of the thoughts of the famous Swedish writer who supported the centrality of children’s rights both on a micro- and macro level and in doing so foreboded The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This special issue will deepen the research on the influence of Barnets Århundrade, with particular reference to the correspondence, still unpublished, between Ellen Key and different personalities in the context of European pedagogy and culture. It appears essential to consider the perspective of this Swedish thinker for a renewal of pedagogical philosophy and educational practice in the 21st century.
