Colonial education in the Congo – a question of “uncritical pedagogy” until the bitter end?

Prof. Marc Depaepe , KULeuven@Kulak, Belgium

Our approach is a historical, and not a theoretical or a philosophical one. But such an approach might help in understanding the complexities and ambiguities of the pedagogical mentalities in the course of the twentieth century. As is usually the case in historical research, the groundwork must
precede the formulation of hypotheses, let alone theories, about the nature of pedagogical practices.

Therefore, since the 1990s, “we” (as a team) have been busy studying the history of education in the former Belgian Congo. Of course, since then we have not only closely monitored the theoretical and methodological developments in the field of colonial historiography, but have ourselves
also contributed to that history. This article tries to give an overview of some of our analyses, concentrating on the question of to what extent the Belgian offensive of colonial (i.e. mainly
