As part of its ongoing celebration of its 100th anniversary, the Bucknell University Department of Education will host a public lecture by Professor A.G. Rud of Washington State University on Monday, March 7, at 7 p.m. in Academic West 210.

Prof. Rud's talk is titled "Democracy & Education in the 21st Century: What's Love Got to Do With It?" In it, he will discuss his belief that love is central to democracy and to education, even though love is not often associated with democracy or teaching and learning in schools. He will also explore how John Dewey, one of America's foremost philosophers of education, developed these ideas, and will use Dewey's insights to comment on current educational initiatives and practices.

A distinguished professor of cultural studies and social thought in Washington State's College of Education, Rud is nationally known for his expertise in philosophical dimensions of education. His research focuses on cultural foundations of education, with an emphasis on the moral dimensions of teacher education, educational leadership and higher education. He is the author of Albert Schweitzer's Legacy for Education, has co-edited two education textbooks, and published numerous articles on human-animal interaction studies.
