The John Dewey Society would like to congratulate Jane Roland Martin.
Jane Roland Martin has been awarded a Fellowship to the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, where she will finish We Were the Lucky Ones: Remembering Progressive Education to be published by Indiana University Press. The mission of the MacDowell Colony is to “nurture the arts by offering creative individuals of the highest talent an inspiring environment in which they can produce enduring works of the imagination.” (Thornton Wilder wrote Our Town at the Macdowell Colony.)
Over the years, Jane has actively contributed to the John Dewey Society. She delivered the 1996 John Dewey Lecture, received the John Dewey Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013, and delivered the keynote lecture at the Democracy and Education Centennial conference in 2016.
