This paper presents some thoughts from a reading on the history of education in Argentina based on the country’s educational press. It argues about the different ways whereby education invents society, ranging from meanings associated to notions like civilisation and nation to the rearrangement of society as a corpus of victimised subjects. In order to support such arguments, particular attention is devoted to analysing the transformation of discursive orderings that have circulated among the public within the educational world. The concepts of interpretive communities (Fish) and communities of feelings (Appadurai) are used to discuss the messages of educational press bodies related either to the State or to social institutions and movements, from the 19th century until the present time.
