📙 A Light in Dark Times: Maxine Greene and the Unfinished Conversation by Maxine Greene, Janet L. Miller — free epub


A Light in Dark Times features a list of extraordinary contributors who have been deeply influenced by Professor Greene’s progressive philosophies. While Maxine Greene is the focus for this collection, each chapter is an encounter with her ideas by an educator concerned with his or her own works and projects. In essence, each featured author takes off from Maxine Greene and then moves forward. This unique and fascinating collection of essays will, as Maxine Greene has, influence a wide range of worlds: arts and aesthetics, literature and literacy studies, cultural studies, school change and improvement, the teaching of literacy, teacher education, philosophy of education, peace and social justice, women’s studies, and civil rights.
