CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Emerging Scholars Panel
Due: March 10, 2019
The John Dewey Society
calls for paper proposals for its panel for emerging scholars to be held at its
annual meeting in conjunction with the American Educational Research
Association meeting in Toronto in April 5-6, 2019.
Theme — Dewey in/and China: Cultural Transformation & Progressive Education in International Settings Today
2019 marks the
centennial of the start of John Dewey’s stay of two years and two months in
China. This year the John Dewey Society is exploring topics related to the
above theme, including nationalism, populism, John Dewey’s influence in China,
the intersection of pragmatism and Confucianism, and the role of culture. While
the general call for proposals has ended, the John Dewey Society has an
exciting new opportunity for those in the nascency of their academic careers.
Or, simply, emerging scholars. We call for papers, both completed and in
progress, on any topic related to John Dewey. While this call is broad, papers
must use Dewey as the central focus.
Once identified, each emerging
scholar will be paired with a senior scholar at the John Dewey Society annual
conference. There the senior scholars will workshop the paper with the emerging
scholar, offer guidance for potential publication, as well as answer any
questions the emerging scholar has. This is an excellent opportunity to: (1)
receive invaluable mentoring from established scholars and (2) make
professional and academic connections.
