Abstract

<p>Abstract:</p><p>This paper explores the reception of Dewey&apos;s ideas on democracy and education in Latin America from the beginning of the twentieth century through the "long 1960s" (1958–1974). The analysis is framed by a dynamic interplay between the local, regional, and supranational. To bring empirical specificity to Dewey&apos;s "translations," the author discusses Dewey&apos;s uptake in two political settings, in 1920s Chile and post-revolutionary Mexico, and two cases of Christian adaptation of Dewey&apos;s theories. The long 1960s signaled an epistemic shift in conceptions of education and social transformation. Dewey was not embraced while Paulo Freire and Ivan Illich became the referents.</p>
