About Our Site - The Virtual Maxine Greene Institute

Our website is maintained as a virtual community where teachers, artists and others interested in our mission congregate, exchange ideas, receive updates, and learn about programs we support. Throughout this site, we encourage your participation in the dialogue. This website is also the place where scholars will find The Maxine Greene Library, a repository for Dr. Greene's papers, speeches, articles, books and video; as well as Maxine Greene's Calendar, listing Dr. Greene's appearances


John Toth & students on-line

The Institute will establish an archive of Maxine Greene’s writing, documented lectures, and public response and will also disseminate the aesthetic education practices, research, and experience inspired by Dr. Maxine Greene. It seeks to form and strengthen alliances among arts organizations, schools, universities, and other cultural organizations, as well as individual educators, teaching artists and experts from other fields who are engaged in aesthetic education, inquiry, and developing social imagination.
