Abstract/Notes: À partir des archives privées essentiellement, l'article revient sur la genèse et les premières années de l'école Montessori dirigée par Michel Lanternier. Des années 1940 aux années 1960, l'établissement connaît un déménagement de Limoges à Rennes, mais aussi des difficultés financières, matérielles et institutionnelles auxquelles fait face l'équipe pédagogique. Aidés des familles de parents d'élèves, ces pédagogues ont à cœur de proposer aux enfants la pédagogie Montessori avec du matériel spécifique ainsi que les produits de recherches pédagogiques de Michel Lanternier, encouragées notamment par Mario Montessori. / This contribution, mainly based on private archives, is dedicated to the genesis and the first years of the Montessori School directed by Michel Lanternier. Between the 1940s and the 1960s, this school moved from Limoges to Rennes and faced financial, material, and institutional problems. Supported by the families of students, the teaching staff strove to offer Montessori pedagogy with specific material and the products of Michel Lanternier's educational research, encouraged by Mario Montessori.

Mothers’ Milk and Mothers’ Time: Childcare Advice and the Conceptualization of Demand Feeding in Post-1945 Britain and Italy

Available from: Cambridge University Press

Publication: The Historical Journal, vol. 67, no. 1

Pages: 102-123

Abstract/Notes: This article draws on childcare advice to investigate the shift from breastfeeding by the clock to feeding on demand in twentieth-century Britain and Italy, to demonstrate that it was not just mothers’ bodies, nor what they fed their children, but their time that was subject to political, medical, and cultural attention. The comparative approach highlights the convergences and divergences in breastfeeding advice, illuminating the interactions with political and intellectual currents, as much as social and economic patterns. ‘Scientific motherhood’ and the promotion of feeding by the clock dominated in Britain and Italy at the beginning of the century, and persisted under fascist initiatives to regulate breastfeeding. Some existing differences, however, contained the seeds of greater divergence after 1945 in the two countries. Shaped by differing intersections of medical, psychoanalytic, and feminist thinking, the uneven shift to the concept of demand feeding slowly took root in Britain in the post-war period, but in Italy only in the context of 1968 counter-cultural ideas. The 1970s brought the conversation back to a point of convergence between Britain and Italy in the feminist recognition of the complexities of balancing the ‘rights and duties’ of mothers and children when it came to feeding babies.

Abstract/Notes: Artykuł stanowi sprawozdanie z badania jakościowo – biograficznego zrealizowanego wśród dwóch grup uczestników biorących udział w kursach Montessori. Podstawowym celem badania była analiza znaczeń nadawanych zmianie. Pytanie badawcze sformułowano następująco: Jak uczestnicy kursu Montessori (6-12) tematyzują swój proces transformacji?  Artykuł podejmuje kwestię zmiany edukacyjnej w kontekście wiedzy milczącej oraz teorii osobistych a następnie opisuje procedurę gromadzenia i analizy danych z dwudziestu pięciu pogłębionych, jakościowych wywiadów indywidualnych, które następnie poddano analizie zgodnie z opisanymi przez Kvale siedmioma krokami. W rezultacie analiz udało się zidentyfikować i opisać dwie główne kategorie: radykalną transformację oraz korektę biograficzną. W końcowej części artykułu autor, w kontekście zebranego materiału zwraca uwagę na ograniczone możliwości narzucania zmiany w edukacji i – podążając za głosami uczestników badania rekomenduje pożądane warunki do zaistnienia potencjalnych zmian: tworzenie nauczycielom warunków wolności do podejmowania decyzji i tworzenia autorskich rozwiązań dydaktycznych, demokratyzacja sfery związanej z edukacją oraz wspieranie poczucia godności wśród nauczycieli.
