EDE532 Dewey, Democracy, and Globalization

The year 2016 marks the centennial of the publication of John Dewey’s book Democracy and Education, perhaps the most significant book in the history of education not only when it was published but also now. This course aims to help students understand Dewey’s ideas for what they say about education today in a globalized world, including how to think about what and how to teach in a democratic society. Besides reading some of Dewey’s central texts, students also explore the ways in which Dewey has been interpreted and his ideas applied not only in the United States but also across other continents.
