The Society seeks to further the study of the history of education by providing opportunities for discussion among those engaged in its study and teaching. The website provides information about the Society's aims, membership, publications, conferences, awards, prizes and bibliographical resources. It also offers links to other sites of interest to researchers in the history of education.
