Gutman Library Book Talk – Hope and Joy in Education: Engaging Daisaku Ikeda Across Curriculum and Context


Thursday, October 14, 2021, 4:00pm to 5:00pm


Harvard Graduate School of Education—Online

Students, parents, and educators are increasingly frustrated, demoralized, burned out, and discontented with education and schooling today. At no time has it been more necessary to revitalize hope in the promise of education or to reestablish joy in teaching and learning. In this timely and inspirational volume, authors from diverse disciplines consider and affirm the many places across curriculum and context where hope and joy are or can be strong and vibrant.

Grounded in the life-affirming ideals of renowned education philosopher and school founder Daisaku Ikeda, Hope and Joy in Education will reenergize educational research, theory, and practice, and will remind readers that the classroom is still a magical space, brimming with the brilliant and creative energy of young people.
