“Democracy and Education: Black Mountain College and How We Think”
February 22nd.
This talk explores the role of pragmatism in shaping the philosophy of education at Black Mountain College. The reason the arts were so highly valued at BMC was not simply because the arts provided a way of seeing the world anew, but more because this emphasis on integrating experience into learning was central to pragmatic ways of thinking about how we learn.

Clark Maddux is a professor of interdisciplinary studies and Director of the Watauga Residential College at Appalachian State University. He has published one volume of Cotton Mather's Biblia Americana and written and presented on John Dewey and the role of reflection in service-learning, most recently in the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, and at the annual meeting of the Society of Early Americanists.
Description: Complimentary breakfast goods from Ugga Mugga Bakery and locally-brewed coffee from Hatchet Coffee Co. will be served. Free for members and a donation of $5 for non-members. This event is part of the Black Mountain College Semester in the College of Arts and Sciences at Appalachian State University.
