Abstract

Georgia Southern University faculty member Robert L. Lake authored "Bridges are Made for Movement" in Constructing a Community of Thought: Letters on the Scholarship, Teaching, and Mentoring of Vera John-Steiner.

Book Summary: This book validates the prolific contribution of Dr. Vera John-Steiner to the social sciences and extends her scholarship, teaching, and mentoring to a new generation of thinkers. Compiled as a companion volume to her Selected Works, the text highlights this scholar’s gifts to psychology, education, linguistics, and the arts through a collection of letters composed by students, colleagues, collaborators, and mentees. In keeping with Dr. John-Steiner’s collaborative and innovative approach, the epistolary genre invites readers into a larger thought community through personal connections, biographical vignettes, and academic expansions of her work. In sharing her commitment to social justice, readers will find themselves compelled to join the collective initiatives established by this notable scholar during the past fifty years to achieve an equitable, enriched education for all.
