Over the last thirty years, Walter Benjamin's writings from the Nineteen Thirties and Forties have been vigorously examined and employed within cultural studies. However, in relation to the disciplines of history and education, there has been a more distanced reception of his ideas, despite - or perhaps because of - the fact that Benjamin was obsessed with the relationship between the past and the present for both political and pedagogic reasons. Crucial to his hopes for a pedagogy based on historical materialism was the possibility that the conjunction of present experience with images of the past might lead to political praxis. It therefore seems appropriate to consider ways in which Benjamin's work might kindle afresh our own historical and educational imaginations.
