Apart from a large number of presentations and a workshop on academic writing organized by Kathy Charmaz we had a session related to the 150 anniversary of George Herbert Mead’s birth that included the participants joining in the singing of the Mead House March, an event organized by Eugene Halton.

ImageOn the Saturday night at the traditional Banquet the award presentation concluded our 2013 conference. Please see below a few images of the award presentation to Joel Best who was presented with the George Herbert Mead Lifetime Achievement Award.

  1. Uhm, I know, I am overly critical, but blurry pictures that look like bad cell-phone pics, really?….. I think I saw Bakker taking several with his camera, his usually turn out pretty good, ask him.

      Thanks, Alexander. Point taken. I have contacted Hans. Hopefully, he will have better pictures to share here. So far this is the best I’ve got. Next Year, we will need a photographer. Dirk

  2. I pay a visit daily a few blogs and websites to read posts, however this website offers feature based content.
