David Hansen to Speak at AERA on Educational Justice

THE CALL TO TEACH Hansen argues that teachers must support young people in learning to “respond, rather than merely react” to life.
THE CALL TO TEACH Hansen argues that teachers must support young people in learning to “respond, rather than merely react” to life.
David T. Hansen, TC’s Weinberg Professor in the Historical and Philosophical Foundations of Education, will deliver the keynote lecture for the SIG/Dewey Studies meeting at this year’s meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in New York City.

Hansen, whose lecture is titled “Educational Justice and the Necessity of Our Philosophical and Civic Traditions,” will speak on Monday, April 16th, from 6:15 to 7:45 at the Parker Hotel, in the Lorica Room on the second floor.

Hansen’s books include The Call to Teach (1995 Teachers College Press) and The Teacher and the World: A Study of Cosmopolitanism, (Routledge 2011). In the latter, he argues that “education continues to happen one person at a time,” and that teachers must support young people in learning to “respond, rather than merely react” to life, in part through a willingness “to learn from rather merely tolerate others.” Such “cosmopolitanism” does not imply arriving at some universally agreed upon set of moral precepts, but instead “the human capacity to be open reflectively to the larger world, while remaining loyal reflectively to local concerns, commitments and values.”
