John Dewey with Albert Barnes

About the Series

The Dewey Dialogues Public Lecture Series continues Dewey's legacy by presenting publicly accessible talks on topics such as the importance of education, democracy and community life, and science and technology as practical arts for the public good. 

Our goal in this series is to feature not only scholars but also practitioners working in relevant areas who are living embodiments of Dewey's legacy. Some speakers may be explicitly influenced by Dewey, but others are invited because they are doing important work in fields that Dewey cared about. Through this series, we often seek to feature local figures in the southern Illinois community.
