Abstract [en]

This article reports on the opening up of a new, rich seam of interdisciplinaryresearch that brings together historians of education with historians of art andarchitecture to examine the meaning and incidence of“The Decorated School”.It examines the origins of the idea of art as educator in the nineteenth centuryand discusses how ideas about the education of taste accompanied theestablishment of mass education in industrialised nations during the early part ofthe twentieth century. Some examples of Decorated Schools in Britain andEurope are discussed with reference to the nature of the international andinterdisciplinary interpretation made possible by the research network. Finally,some of the challenges of interdisciplinary research in this area are presented, aswell as rich opportunities for further exploration. The article concludes that inorder to come closer to a realisation of how pupils might have experienced TheDecorated School in the past, we need to incorporate histories of children’splay-worlds in our project.
