A message from the John Dewey Society President

Dear Dewey Studies SIG members,

The John Dewey Society is looking forward to our 2022 annual meeting in San Diego. Our theme is Border Justice and InterAmerican Cooperation. We are meeting on Wednesday, April 20, just prior to the start of the American Educational Research Association conference.

We are pleased to welcome Christopher Tirres as our John Dewey Memorial Lecturer. Dr. Tirres will be speaking about the role that art played in the aftermath of the 2019 shootings in El Paso, Texas. In our John Dewey Symposium, we will welcome a stellar group of scholar-activists to talk about land rights in the border region, led by Wayne Yang. We are also planning a border tour with activists from the American Friends Service Committee which will help us understand, up close, the violence that has been inflicted on the land and those living on it.

We have recently extended the deadline for proposed papers to February 7. Please consider sharing a proposal with us or encouraging a doctoral student with whom you work to do so.

Finally, if you know you'd like to come, we invite you to let us know by taking this brief survey. As with all JDS events, the conference itself will be free and open to the public. This year, however, we will have a voluntary registration fee that will be part of a land tax we will use to support those who are struggling for land rights in the border region.

On behalf of the John Dewey Society, I wish you a safe and productive semester. And please do hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Kyle Greenwalt
JDS President
