The Edmund C. Short Curriculum Studies Collection: A Celebration

Abstract

This proposal is a continuation of the celebratory session at the Curriculum Studies Summer Collaborative in June, 2013, that acknowledged the creation of the William H. Schubert Curriculum Studies Collection at the Zack S. Henderson Library at Georgia Southern University. The 2013 session (“The William H. Schubert Curriculum Studies Collection: A Celebration” Curriculum Studies Summer Collaborative (CSSC) Conference, Savannah, GA, June 21) focused on contributions of William H. Schubert with commentaries by Dr. Bede Mitchell, Dean of the Library, Dr.Tom Kobala, Dean of the College of Education, and introductions of Dr. William H. Schubert (Professor Emeritus of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago) by Dr. Julie Maudlin, Associate Professor at Georgia Southern and William H. Watkins (Professor of Education, University of Illinois at Chicago). This was followed by commentary on the Collection by William Schubert.

Insofar as the overall status of the Curriculum Studies Collection includes both Collections of Dr. Schubert and Dr. Edmund C. Short, this proposal pertains to the latter. Thus, we propose a special session to acknowledge the equally substantial collection of books, monographs, journals, and documents pertaining to curriculum history that have been donated to the Zach S. Henderson Library by Edmund C. Short. We suggest that Dean Mitchell and Dean Koballa be invited to share in a similar manner to the tribute given to the William H. Schubert Collection as in 2013. This would be a late afternoon or early evening session that is not in conflict with other sessions. It would be celebratory session, with refreshments. Professor Short has held the conference dates for the event this year, and he had already scheduled travel plans during the 2013 event when he was approached about attending. We suggest that Dr. Short be introduced by Dr. Schubert and by Dr. Maudlin or Dr. Chapman, co-chairs of the CSSC Planning Council. Another possible speaker would be Dr. Andrew Kemp of Georgia Regents University in Augusta, who was one of Dr. Short’s doctoral advisees at Central Florida University.
