A Light in Dark Times features a list of extraordinary contributors who have been deeply influenced by Professor Greene’s progressive philosophies. While Maxine Greene is the focus for this collection, each chapter is an encounter with her ideas by an educator concerned with his or her own works and projects. In essence, each featured author takes off from Maxine Greene and then moves forward.
This unique and fascinating collection of essays will―as Maxine Greene has―influence a wide range of worlds: arts and aesthetics, literature and literacy studies, cultural studies, school change and improvement, the teaching of literacy, teacher education, philosophy of education, peace and social justice, women’s studies, and civil rights.

“Maxine Greene is the preeminent American philosopher of education today. Her work has had an enormous impact on generations of teachers, researchers, academics, and school reform activists.... This book focuses on the issues and questions raised by Maxine Greene over several decades: social imagination, the place of activism, the importance of the arts, progressive school change, the role of culture, and the meaning of freedom in the modern world. It is focused on the future, toward exploring these themes into the twenty-first century.”
