John Dewey Society Achievement Awards

Dear JDS members,
Just a reminder that our Awards Committee is seeking nominations for JDS Achievement Awards. The date by which nominations should be received is February 15. A list of past JDS Award recipients is available on our website.

The Awards Committee has put together the following criteria and invites nominations for either of the awards:

John Dewey Society Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement
The Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement will be awarded to the individual who, in the judgment of the committee, exemplifies, over a lifetime of work, the Deweyan tradition of connecting theory and practice. Each year, the award will recognize: a scholar-practitioner who, in the Deweyan tradition, connects the worlds of theory and practice in promoting the development of democratic citizens; or an exceptional explicator and interpreter of Dewey?s philosophy and educational theory.

John Dewey Society Award for Outstanding Achievement
The Awards for Outstanding Achievement will be awarded to those individuals who, in the judgment of the committee, have most strongly exemplified the Deweyan tradition of connecting theory and practice. Each year, the awards will recognize significant achievements in scholarship and/or in social, cultural, or educational practice accomplished within the two previous calendar years (January ? December).

Any member may nominate a candidate for either of the JDS awards, and members are free to self-nominate. A nomination must be sent to John Covaleskie, chair of the nominating committee, at, along with a letter explaining how the candidate qualifies for such an award, taking into consideration the specified criteria. If members of the awards committee are nominated for any award, they must recuse themselves from voting for that award.
Best wishes to you all,

Call for Book Chapters –

From Linda-Hoeptner-Poling –

Dear Friends, Supporters, Colleagues of the NAEA Women’s Caucus

We have extended the deadline for receiving abstracts to our call for abstracts to OCT 1, 2015. We hope that you will submit an abstract of a chapter proposal and forward this note to colleagues to encourage proposal submissions.

CALL FOR CHAPTERS — Women’s Caucus Lobby Activism Book


EDITORS:  Karen Keifer-Boyd, Linda Hoeptner-Poling, Sheri Klein, Wanda Knight, and Adetty Pérez de Miles

ABOUT THE BOOK:  The book is based on the National Art Education Association’s Women’s Caucus Lobby themes and activism since 2008.

NOTE: Authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapters.  Beyond the NAEA Women’s Caucus sessions, meetings, and events that reside within the formal protocol of the NAEA, the Lobby Activism session serves as an informal space for personal as political discussion and action. Held the first evening of the NAEA Convention in the hotel lobby, since 2008, the one-hour open forum has evolved into a multi-modal form of engagement, including introductions, performance, artmaking, brainstorming and synthesizing ideas–as well as planning collaboratively for future action. A human microphone process used throughout the lobby amplifies our political voice in public feminist art pedagogy.

Lobby Activism book contributors might share their experiences as participants in each year’s Lobby Activism session. Contributions on lobby session influence, impact, theory, and possibilities are also encouraged. However, in each of the ten book sections we would like to extend beyond the Lobby Activism Sessions and encourage submissions that are about the themes. Therefore, authors from a range of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, and not having participated in the Women’s Caucus and Lobby Sessions are also encouraged to submit chapters.

BOOK CHAPTERS:  The 10 sections of the book are formed from the annual themes of the Lobby sessions Diversity of approaches to scholarship relative to the book sections are encouraged.

See for suggestions for writing chapters or visual essays for one or more of the ten sections of the book, briefly outlined below. as well as photos and prompts/data/inspiration for the sessions and transcripts of audio recordings from each Lobby Activism session. As noted above, authors do not need to have attended Lobby sessions to submit chapter proposals.

2018: Activism: This section will include narratives of feminist activism through art and education.

2017: Entanglement. This section of the book revisions intersectionality theory as an entanglement of social identities and circumstances that hampers one’s ability to escape, disengage, or act at will, and activism that changes.

2016: Feminist Leadership. This section will include chapters on feminist leadership in art education in which art teachers are instrumental in transforming schools and communities.

2015: How do you (re)deSIGN gender codes in your teaching, art, and life? This section of the book will include explorations that (re)deSIGN binary-based constructions of gender in research, teaching, art, and life.

2014: Speak Truth to Power. This section will include case studies of speaking truth to power through art and/or art education.

2013: What are my personal responsibilities and our collective responsibilities to end violence? This section explores ways that art educators can disrupt systemic violence through pedagogy, service, community work, activism and other forms of resistance.

2012: What Do You Believe is Critical to Lobby For? This section explores how and why feminist art educators decide where to put activist energies both in and outside of the classroom at all levels of education, in addressing competing demands posed by issues of both personal and broader social landscapes of feminist activism.

2011: A Time When … This section of educational narrative inquiries will focus on how feminist art teachers’ conceptualize their work and navigate the personal, professional, pedagogical, and political.

2010: What is the Image of a Feminist in the Field of Art Education Today? This section will explore aims of feminism and feminist pedagogy in art education for contemporary times.

2009: Enacting Change: What We Can Learn From Each Other? This section focuses on mentoring, reciprocity, dialogue, and networking.

2008: Vote: What Should an Art Educator Do?” Visual culture is omnipresent and plays a role in our everyday decisions from the products that we consume to important decisions such as presidential elections.

SUBMISSION DETAILS:  Proposal Format: Prospective contributors will submit a 400-500 word abstract with at least five references from relevant literature and a chapter title, author name, affiliation, and contact information (phone, e-mail and mailing address).
