John Dewey Society at AERA

Here are two messages from the Society.  The first concerns corrected information about room locations.  The second provides information about the meeting and includes a PDF with the schedule of JDS events.  — Edprof
Hi, Friends,

Just a heads up. What we have been calling Room 5 at the Gonzalez Center, based on information from AERA, is really Riverwalk 005.  You will find this room just off of the West Lobby along the River.

Please tell everyone you know.

Rob, as soon s you get this, please send an urgent message by email to all of our members.

Hello Members and Friends of the John Dewey Society,

We invite you all to attend the JDS annual meeting taking place April 27 and 28 during the AERA conference in San Antonio, TX at the Henry Gonzalez Convention Center.

The theme of this years’s conference is:
Creative Democracy – The Task Before Us in the Era of Clinton v. Trump

Please see the attached program and know that all events are free and open to the public, so bring your colleagues and students along.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be relevant insights into how we may reclaim democratic life and public education in the age of Donald Trump.

Looking forward,
Robert Karaba–JDS Director of Communications

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 jcovales@ou.edu, 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,

Kyle
