Submit Your Proposal Before August 14

With the final submission deadline changed to August 14, there is still an opportunity for you to send in your AERA Dewey Studies SIG proposals. I encourage you to submit papers to the SIG and join the global conversation that the Virtual 2021 AERA conference will be. The number of paper and session allocations that our SIG will receive for the 2021 Annual Meeting is based on the total number of submissions received during the Call for Submissions.

Here is the link to the AERA 2021 website: https://www.aera.net/Events-Meetings/Annual-Meeting.

The Dewey Studies SIG is an interest group within AERA and conference submissions are submitted within AERA to this SIG or other interest groups and divisions.

This is a great opportunity to invite new people into the Dewey Studies SIG. Please share this invitation with students and colleagues

Looking Forward to 2021

Dear Dewey Studies SIG Colleagues:

AERA 2020 was the first time I have missed attending the gathering in 21 years. I know that missing this yearly connection is true for many of you as well. And, perhaps, this loss of connections makes looking forward to AERA 2021 that much more important. As the Chair of the Dewey Studies SIG I am reaching out to SIG members to encourage each of you renew your membership in SIG and to also work on behalf of the SIG to secure new members. As we prepare for the 2021 AERA conference to be held in Orlando, it is important for SIG members to focus on ensuring a strong program for the SIG. As many of you may know, the number of proposals submitted each year determines the number of sessions our SIG is allocated. With more proposals submitted we are able to advance the presence of our SIG at the annual AERA meeting and to ensure that a larger percentage of the SIG membership is accepted to present. We have been able to prepare great sessions in the past and looking forward to having another strong program in 2021.

The SIG is only as strong and viable as the membership and therefore I encourage you be active in the SIG on all levels---reviewing proposals, submitting proposals, attending SIG sessions, and providing support for SIG presenters. Equally important is attending the SIG business meeting and taking part in the activities hosted by the SIG.

The SIG exists, in large part, to continue the legacy of John Dewey, a legacy that we as SIG members are responsible for ensuring its continuance and realization in education and society. In these regards, please encourage graduate students and early career scholars to join the SIG and bring their perspectives into the SIG conversations. After all, the SIG, much the same as Dewey’s legacy, is only as strong and enduring as the SIG’s membership. I look forward to AERA 2021 and to collectively growing the Dewey Studies SIG membership, renewing and revitalizing our commitments.

Respectfully,

Margaret Macintyre Latta, SIG Chair

AERA, Dewey Studies SIG, 2020 New Arrangements


 Dear Dewey Studies SIG Members:

I ask that you join me in thanking Patrick Jenlink for his long-time commitment to the AERA Dewey Studies SIG.  Patrick steps down as Chair of the SIG as I move into this role for the 2020-22 years ahead. Carol Rodgers is our new SIG Program Chair.  Congratulations to her!  I look forward to working with Carol alongside Chetanath Gautam (Communications) and Charles Lowery (Treasurer)  to build our AERA SIG Program in 2021.  A primary goal for all of us is to increase our SIG membership, visibility, and impacts.  All ideas and assistance are appreciated.

The 2020 AERA Annual Meeting will be a virtual conference rather than a place-based event in San Francisco, due to the Novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). (See https://aera.informz.net/informzdataservice/onlineversion/ind/bWFpbGluZ2luc3RhbmNlaWQ9Mjg5Mzg4MyZzdWJzY3JpYmVyaWQ9MzgwNDY5MjM0.)

I would like to encourage Dewey Studies SIG members to join one of the three announced “Briefing and Listening Sessions” via Zoom to learn more about plans for a virtual meeting. These sessions are scheduled for Tuesday, March 10, at 4:00-5:00pm ET; Wednesday, March 11, also at 4:00-5:00pm ET; and Friday, March 13, at 12:00-1:00pm ET. Detailed instructions on how to join those discussion will be posted on the AERA website and publicized via email and social media.

Although the AERA meeting will be virtual this year rather than place-based, the Association, and its Divisions and SIGs, are working hard to devise a plan that can maximize benefits across all participants and all units.

Dewey Studies SIG – AERA 2019, Toronto
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

JOEL WESTHEIMER

Monday April 8th at 6:35-8:05pm in Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Rm 201E

Title: Public Matters: John Dewey and the Enduring Relevance of Education for Democratic Life

Abstract:

Belief in the fundamental importance of civic education for democracy has been long-standing. But if educators can agree that schools have an essential role to play in preparing students for informed engagement in civic and political life, they can’t seem to agree on what that means. The very same efforts that are applauded by some are viewed as misguided by others. The result for school children has been a mostly watered-down notion of civics that emphasizes good character and patriotism over critical thinking and engaging with multiple perspectives. At the same time, the number of young people worldwide now willing to entertain non-democratic forms of government is on the rise. For example, nearly a quarter of U.S. youth age 16-24 believe that democracy is a “bad” or “very bad” way of governing. About 70% of millennials do not think it is essential to live in a country governed by democratic rule of law.

In this address, I reconsider three common themes in John Dewey’s writing on education and the public to examine the role education must play in reclaiming a notion of a democratic public, even in a time of rising anti-democratic sentiments.
