>Educational institutions and spaces have long 
>served as overt sites where inward 
>transformations central to the cultivation of 
>national identity occur. While Enlightenment 
>thinkers such as Kant and Rousseau and 
>reformers, such as Pestalozzi advocated a 
>pedagogy of liberation and freedom, schools in 
>succeeding centuries borrowed disciplinary 
>tactics from religious, military and 
>correctional institutions, often to achieve 
>nationalistic purposes. This panel will 
>investigate the paradoxes and ideological 
>struggles inherent in the educative process and 
>welcomes papers that explore theoretical, 
>literary and visual representations of students, 
>teachers and educational spaces in 
>German-speaking contexts. Possible topics 
>include (but are not limited to): literary and 
>visual depictions of educational institutions; 
>historical pedagogies from Enlightenment, 
>Classical and Modernist concepts of "Bildung" to 
>"Reformpädagogik;" scenes of awakening and 
>self-realization; the role of education in 
>nation building; educational philosophies 
>(Leibniz, Kant, Goethe, Humboldt, Schlegel, 
>Fichte, Pestalozzi, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, 
>Freud, Marx, Habermas); physical education; 
>constructions of childhood and adolescence in
