A Letter to the Readers
Tsyrlina-Spady, Tatyana [about]

Dear friends and readers,

Welcome to this new journal issue. We are back to our traditional format with a history of education corner represented, as usual, by Professor Boguslavsky’s paper, and also with other papers united by a general topic, Young American and Russian scholars share their research. We thought it would be a good idea to introduce a few interesting studies from both sides of the ocean. Although these papers differ in research style, depth, approaches, and methods they are mostly united by the authors’ statuses – these are either young researchers, or doctoral candidates, or doctoral and graduate students.

I am also very excited to inform you that from now on we plan to provide space for short book reviews. To inaugurate this section, we have chosen a book by an Israeli Professor Marc Silverman published just a couple of months ago and devoted to the philosophy and pedagogy of Janusz Korczak, whose name and legacy are well known to our frequent readers. But if you are new to the journal, check out the previous issue, # 22, and you will find a number of publications about the ideas of this great humanist of the 20th century and also about different projects inspired by him.

Regarding Janusz Korczak’s activities and his educational legacy, I would also like to inform you that Seattle Pacific University (Seattle, WA) in cooperation with Korczak Association of the USA is planning an international conference under a working title, Education for excellence, diversity, and respect: Transformative 21st century innovations. The conference will be held on campus of Seattle Pacific University, Seattle, WA on August 22–25, 2018. Very soon I will be able to provide you with the link to the conference website but for now please email me with any questions you might have.

That’s about it for now, and I will let you start reading the journal and writing your comments at the bottom of each paper.

Looking forward to receiving your feedback.

Always yours,
Tatyana Tsyrlina-Spady
