John Dewey Society Emerging Scholars Panel – Call for Proposals

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.

John Dewey Society Panel on Dewey and Philosophy
CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The John Dewey Society calls for paper proposals for its panel on Dewey and Philosophy to be held at its annual meeting in conjunction with the American Educational Research Association meeting in Toronto in April 2019.  For information about the JDS, go to (http://www.johndeweysociety.org)

2019 marks the centennial of the start of John Dewey’s stay of two years and two months in China. He arrived in China at a time of cultural transformation and upheaval. There was the spread of a new vernacular called Paihua that signaled a ferment of thought. The New Culture movement and the May Fourth (1919) student uprising focused on Western science amidst a new found nationalism and populism.

Today, Dewey’s influence in China is broad and deep, though it underwent a number of shifts since that time. His early influence peaked in the decade following his visit, and he was later savagely criticized by the Communist regime shortly after his death in 1952. For many scholars, this criticism indicated the depth that Dewey’s influence still had on Chinese culture. At present there is a resurgence of Dewey in China, evidenced in part by the recent translation of the collected works of Dewey into Chinese, published in 2015, and the work of the Dewey Center at Fudan University (see the research note in the spring 2018 issue of Dewey Studies).

One of the main reasons that Dewey had such a profound influence on China was due to his pragmatism and its relation to Confucianism, which emphasizes thought for its usefulness in social situations and for living a good and proper life. Dewey’s philosophy fit with traditional Chinese culture, even though Confucianism was under attack as an old tradition during the New Culture movement at that time in China.

However, the 20th century was a time when Chinese culture changed dramatically with the influence of Marxism and Communism. Dewey had warned against a wholesale acceptance of Marxism and Communism, and later was condemned for this way of thinking. Dewey did not call for the general rejection of Chinese culture or complete adaptation of Western culture, but for a new culture that would come about through a careful evaluation and reflection upon both cultures. He asks in his critical review of Bertrand Russell’s The Problem of China: “…what is to win in the present turmoil of change: the harsh and destructive impact of the West, or the internal recreation of Chinese culture inspired by intercourse with the West” (MW 15:218).

We call for papers that not only may take up an explicit study of Dewey in/and China, but that also deal with the themes of cultural transformation and progressive education more broadly in other worldwide contexts and in other countries, including North America. In considering Dewey together with Chinese and other cultures, we can ask a number of questions that are specific to Dewey in/and China but can be extended to other contexts elsewhere, such as:

  • How has Chinese or other cultures been changed or transformed by Deweyan influence?
  • Was Dewey’s philosophy affected by his stay in China?
  • What are current manifestations of Deweyan philosophy in China, and other countries? How is it demonstrated in pedagogy, curriculum, and school planning and leadership?
This list is in no way exhaustive regarding Dewey in/and China, and Dewey’s influence more broadly in the world. Accepted submissions will also be considered for publication in one of the journals sponsored by the John Dewey Society, including Education & Culture, Journal of School and Society, andDewey Studies.

HOW TO SUBMIT
Submit all proposals (prepared per instructions below) for individual papers via email with an attachment as a Word document. All proposals are due by midnight Eastern time November 30, 2018, via email to Sarah Stitzlein, John Dewey Society President-Elect, Professor, University of Cincinnati, Sarah.Stitzlein@uc.edu; Any questions – contact Sarah Stitzlein directly via email.

Proposals accepted for presentation in this panel of the John Dewey Society will be notified by January 15, 2019. Full papers of up to 5000 words (excluding references) will be due no later than March 15, 2019 for the discussant to prepare remarks.

Society of Professors of Education 2018 Call for Proposals

Speak the Truth and Expose Lies: The Responsibility of Professors of Education in Hard Times

SPE 2018 Call for Proposals (Due 1/13/18)

As Spiderman’s Uncle Ben told us, “With great power comes great responsibility.” While it’s arguable whether his advice applies to professors of education, the Society’s conference theme for this year draws on Noam Chomsky’s reminder that even our limited power as intellectuals does come with responsibility. We invite you to join the conversation about what those responsibilities might entail in these difficult times.

What does it mean to be a professor of education in the current climate? How can we nurture in our students and ourselves the bravery that will allow us to face today’s challenges? What is the value of work in education as contrasted (or in collaboration) with other disciplines? How can scholars work more closely with teachers and other educational practitioners? How can we build bridges to other communities? What are our responsibilities for advocacy?

The Society of Professors of Education (SPE) invites proposals for presentations at its annual meeting, to be held during the 2018 AERA Annual Conference in New York City from April 13th to 17th. We are especially interested in presentations that are focused on the theme of “Speak the Truth and Expose Lies: The Responsibilities of Professors of Education in Hard Times.” Proposals not related to the theme but focused on the goals of the Society (below) are also welcome.

Founded in 1902, the Society of Professors of Education is a professional and academic association open to all persons engaged in teacher preparation, curriculum studies, educational foundations, and related activities. The Society’s primary goal is to provide a forum for consideration of major issues, tasks, problems, and challenges confronting professional educators. SPE is an interdisciplinary organization. Its members include both scholars and practitioners in education.

All presenters must be members of the Society of Professors of Education in order to be included in the conference program. We encourage you to join the Society at your earliest convenience. You will find a membership form at the Society of Professors of Education web page at:

http://societyofprofessorsofeducation.com

Please visit the Society of Professors of Education Facebook Group page (and join us!) at the following URL address:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Society.of.Professors.of.Education/

Proposals must be submitted electronically to the Program Chair Jason Lukasik no later than January 13, 2018. The proposal must be sent as a Word document attachment in an e-mail addressed to SPEsubmissions@gmail.com. The subject line of the e-mail message must read: “SPE 2018 Proposal.”

Cover Sheet: Each proposal should have a separate cover sheet that lists: 1) title of the paper; 2) names, affiliations and relevant backgrounds of all participants; 3) address, telephone number, and e-mail address of the person submitting the proposal and addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of all participants. The cover sheet will not be sent to proposal reviewers. Except for the cover sheet, the proposal must not contain any information that identifies participant(s).

Length: Proposals should be between 350-500 words. The proposal should restate the title of the presentation, its contents, its format of the presentation (e.g., paper session, roundtable, or symposium), and its significance. The proposal should NOT identify the presenters.

Call for Reviewers:

In addition to submitting your work, another way that you can participate in the Society is to volunteer as a proposal reviewer. The review process will take place soon after the deadline. Please contact Program Chair Jason Lukasik at lukasik@augsburg.edu if you are interested in reviewing proposals for the 2018 meeting.

Looking forward to seeing you at AERA in New York!
