NYCEA is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for the 2018 conference will be Jonathan Zimmerman, Professor of History of Education at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. Dr. Zimmerman will speak during the conference luncheon on Saturday, October 20.
As described in his official bio, "A former Peace Corps volunteer and public school social studies teacher, Dr. Zimmerman holds a Ph.D. in history from the Johns Hopkins University. His scholarship has focused broadly on the ways that different peoples have imagined and debated education across time and space. He has authored books about sex and alcohol education, history and religion in the curriculum, Americans who taught overseas, and historical memory in public schooling. His most recent work examines campus politics in the United States, including controversies over diversity, sexual assault, and 'political correctness.'" To read more about Zimmerman, click here!
