In his MA thesis entitled "José Martí pedagogo: Educación y modernidad," William Kearney considers José Martí's educative vision as presented in the newspaper articles and children's literature written during his New York City period (1880-1895). Particular attention is paid to the way in which Martí confronts the difficulties posed by the intersection between education and the phenomenon of modernity.
