School, educational science and educational policy in Germany during the Cold War

This research topic targets an analysis of leadership behaviours, participation structures and forms of subjectivation in schools and in pedagogical institutions in East and West Germany during the Cold War.

Educational political actors and instances, individual schools and clientele of pedagogical influence are taken into perspective at both sides of the Berlin Wall. Particular focus is placed on their dealings with and within the political blocks, as reflected by different practices. Particular attention is paid to the divided city of Berlin where the competition of systems and networkings were particularly evident.
