The ELHN working group Workers’ Education Research Network consists of scholars from different disciplines interested in the educational efforts of the working class, in all forms and formats. Be it reading circles, self-educational projects, vocational training or works colleges – the history, didactics are political implications are discussed.



Our activities have so far consisted of organizing panels and sessions at the established conferences, but will also include workshops and joint publications.
