About this book


This book provides a history of the Quaker educator and intercultural education pioneer Rachel Davis DuBois (1892-1993) that explores the period in which DuBois lived and the key works she created. The opening section establishes the disciplinary contexts of her work, education, and folklore, and the subsequent sections present DuBois' pedagogical methods as they were developed and exemplified by her programs. Throughout the narrative, Rosenberg includes reflections on her own experience as a practitioner of the intercultural and folklife education DuBois championed.
