Plan now to join us at Universidade de Évora (, in Évora, Portugal (about an hour southeast of Lisbon) for the 2024 Conference to be held June 5th through June 7th. We are delighted that the University’s Centro de Investigação em Educação e Psicologia will host the conference.

A Call for Proposals will be available soon and will focus on the theme, “(How) Is Deweyan Pragmatism Critical?” We look forward to thinking together about Dewey scholarship and educational practice across continents!

NOTE: We’ll be coordinating our conference planning with the Central European Pragmatist Forum ( CEPF is meeting in Vienna, June 10th – 14th. Designated JDS members will be invited to participate in the weeklong CEPF gathering of 15 American and 15 European scholars at which each invitee presents a paper to the entire gathered assembly. In addition, CEPF participants who are not prior JDS members will be invited to be part of our gathering in Évora. We’ll be soliciting member interest in CPEF 2024 through the JDS Call for Proposals.
