Abstract : Inaugurated in 2013, this collective research programme aims to construct an international mapping of the history of education that accounts for recent devel-opments in the field. Our goal is to create a current and retrospective assessment of the discipline's institutional grounding and of the knowledge produced by its practitioners, stretching across national and cultural borders. Ultimately, the pro-gramme will help to increase interactions among scholars and facilitate the crea-tion of collaborative research agendas, thereby augmenting the standing and visibility of the discipline. This text will briefly introduce the programme's conceptual basis, explaining the methodological steps taken to ensure the comparability of data gathered and the transnational and transcontinental character of the study's design. In the second section, we will zoom in on doctoral students' dissertations, which are the opti-mal way to study a discipline's development and potential. Doctoral students and recent graduates are part of a tradition, a school of thought, and yet they constitute that tradition's replacement and renewal. Therefore, as graduate stu-dents carry forth the disciplinary torch, they hold the future of the field in their hands.
