Xie, Hui – Education and Culture, 2020
In light of decades of formal denouncement of Deweyan ideas in China and the increasingly authoritarian practices under its current leadership, the recent revival of engagement with Dewey's work among Chinese educators and intellectuals appears extraordinary as well as paradoxical. How is it possible that a project as ardently democratic as…

Li, Weisheng – Education and Culture, 2020
In this essay, we focus on how Chinese students' experience emerged and evolved in the educational activities of the twenty-first century, one hundred years after John Dewey's visit to China. With the help of a case study, I find that (1) the individual's experience is lived and understood in combination with others' lives; (2) democratic dialogue…

Bu, Yuhua; Zu, Yuanyuan – Education and Culture, 2020
Between 1919-1920, while giving a series of speeches in China, John Dewey raised a doubt about Chinese education: Can Chinese education cultivate children with independent consciousness? Based on the sevenyear "Reciprocal Learning in Teacher Education and School Education between Canada and China" project, we have the answer to Dewey's…

Stengel, Barbara – Education and Culture, 2020
John Dewey went to China in 1919 and stayed for more than two years. He watched and learned. He wrote and spoke volumes both while he was there and after he returned. One hundred years later, we are unsurprisingly interested in whether Dewey's time in China left a trace.

Hytten, Kathy – Education and Culture, 2019
In this essay, I reflect on the need for an activist notion of hope as an antidote to the social, political, and educational challenges we face in our current times. I first discuss some of these challenges as well as emergent signs of hope based upon different ways of telling the stories of our present. I then define hope as a way of being and…

Goddard, Connie – Education and Culture, 2019
John Dewey and W.E.B. Du Bois were prominent critics of how vocational education programs were often used to restrict rather than enhance student aspirations. An overview of the Bordentown Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth (1886-1955) suggests that it met requirements both men articulated for the right kind of vocational…

Ralston, Shane J. – Education and Culture, 2019
This article explores the possibility that John Dewey's silence about which democratic means are needed to achieve democratic ends, while confusing, makes greater sense if we appreciate the notion of political technology from an anthropological perspective. Michael Eldridge relates the exchange between John Herman Randall, Jr. and Dewey in which…

Waks, Leonard J. – Education and Culture, 2019
In this paper I account for the role of guiding intuitions in teaching, focusing on the intuitions formed in the process of lesson planning. I start (in section one) by reviewing some research on lesson planning to locate the role of intuition in the process. I then turn to Wertheimer's and Kohler's gestalt psychology (section two) and Dewey's…

Mitchell, Jeff – Education and Culture, 2019
In 1932 Dewey and Tufts issued an extensively revised edition of their famous Ethics of 1908. Both versions are now available as public domain resources on the Internet, and teachers are likely to assign the second edition, since it reflects the authors' mature views. However, at least as regards Dewey's treatment of virtue, I argue that the…

Goldman, Jacqueline A.; Heddy, Benjamin C.; Laird, Susan – Education and Culture, 2018
The purpose of this theoretical exposition is to bring two fields into discussion concerning the issue of motivation, in the new monetized context of education, through an encounter between John Dewey and self-determination theory. Using Dewey's Experience and Education as well as self-determination theory's most fundamental scholarship (e.g.,…

Stengel, Barbara S. – Education and Culture, 2018
How can and will educators in any setting work with young people of all ages to enable them to develop the ability to interrogate--without denigrating--the claims of candidates, the newsmaking of media, the needs of their neighbors, and the fears of their family members? The answer I offer and defend here involves two dispositions--creative…

The following work is intended to be a closer look and commentary on the issue of gun violence and mass shootings in the United States of America. An overarching pragmatic lens will be utilized to argue that the time is now to make a change in our current trajectory of normalized gun violence in our schools, and society in general. We currently…

Vaughan, Kelly – Education and Culture, 2018
John Dewey was a progressive theorist, a pragmatist, a philosopher, and arguably the most influential American educator of the twentieth century. Yet, despite extensive documentation about John Dewey's philosophies of education and democracy, there is limited research and no consensus about Dewey's views about race and racism. I use a combination…
