The Ginsberg Center’s Dewey Series recognizes the enduring legacy of philosopher and educational reformer John Dewey, who taught at U of M in the 1890’s and, later, went on to found the New School for Social Research. Chief among Dewey’s enduring ideas were that experience is the means through which we come to understand and connect with the world around us and that universal education is the key to democracy.
This year, Ginsberg Center, is collaborating with Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum and University of Michigan Museum of Art, to host a dialogue on the intersection of community, identity, public spaces, and environmental justice. We will also offer additional opportunities to explore MBGNA including garden tours and a scavenger hunt.
We hope you can join us for a restorative and engaging event!
