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
