Carsten Fogh Nielsen - Participant

Celebrating the centennial of Dewey’s classic, we hereby invite scholars to meet and debate the status of pragmatism today and how pragmatism has influenced and still influences educational theory and practice. One issue is whether a pragmatic approach to education has contributed to the improvement of society, and whether a pragmatic approach to cognition and society has contributed to the improvement of education. We have invited world-leading researchers – approaching pragmatism from areas such as cognition, education and society – as key note speakers; and the conference will bring together researchers and educators who are engaged in a variety of approaches to pragmatism. Thus, the conference aims at creating an ideal setting for the exchange of ideas and research proposals. Following the democratic tradition of dialogue, we are planning an inspirational programme which will allow participants the space to exchange, discuss and share ideas, to raise agendas, and to create networks for further research.
