Carla Callegari


University of Padua (Italy)



Carla Callegari is Associate Professor for History of Education and Comparative Education at the University of Padua, Italy. She has conducted research within the context of the epistemological and methodological renewal, which, since the 1960s, has led to the emergence of the history of education as a revitalised and broad discipline alongside the history of educational ideas. Her focus has always been on highlighting educational theories that support educational practices in particular contexts and through specific experiences. She has also developed a specific interest in the methodological aspects of research, focusing on sources as a heuristic and interpretative issue. Carla Callegari as a scholar of comparative education is one of two professors responsible for coordinating the Working Group on "Comparative Studies in Education" established within the Italian Society of Pedagogy (SIPED).
