Doctoral Dissertation

American Writings on Maria Montessori: An Inquiry into Changes in the Reception and Interpretations Given to Writings on Maria Montessori and Montessori Educational Ideas 1910-1915 and 1958-1970

Available from: ProQuest - Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this dissertation will be to survey and analyze American writings on Maria Montessori and her educational system, in order to show how the idea of Montessori education has interacted with some changing American ideas and social forces. These changes in social and intellectual currents can be likened to a shift from centrifugal to centripetal force; or to the expansion and then the contraction of a universe. The central metaphor is the same. It is applicable to, and illustrative of, much about the changing social and educational scene in America. The writings on Montessori, examined against this framework, should provide a new view on certain changes in American educational thinking.

Performing Gender, Class and Nation: Rukmini Devi Arundale and the Impact of Kalakshetra

Abstract/Notes: Rukmini Devi Arundale, herself a choreographer and dancer, is considered one of the key figures in re-creating Bharatanatyam. Through her utopian arts colony, Kalakshetra, started during the movement towards Indian independence, she taught what she deemed to be a classical, religious and aesthetically pleasing form of dance. Her rejection of what she termed vulgarity and commercialism in dance reflects her Theosophical worldviews and her class position in a rapidly changing South India. The article examines the ways in which her understanding of Bharatanatyam developed in the context of contested forms of nationalism as a gender regime that contributed to creating proper middle-class, Hindu and Indian subjects. It also examines the impacts of this form of cultural heritage relating to gender, culture and nationalism in today’s globalised South Asian dance scenario.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s works discussed in this chapter are, Education for a New World (1946), To Educate the Human Potential (1948), and The Formation of Man (1955). Like many of her texts, these publications are based on transcriptions of lectures held in various settings including teacher training courses. These three books were written during and after the tragic disruptions caused by WWII and were published first in India. They are among Montessori's last texts in which she highlights cosmic education and expresses her conviction of the need for a global reconstruction that must necessarily begin with childhood.

Abstract/Notes: This section includes a selection of Maria Montessori’s key writings that reflect the broad range of her body of work and that represent ideas that are fundamental for Montessori education today. Her writings are multifaceted and sometimes challenging for today’s readers because they contain philosophical expositions, almost arcane vocabulary, and even references to biblical texts. In this section, the chapter sequence is generally organized by year of first publication to follow the evolution of Montessori’s scholarly work.
