While university administrators have many ways to assess a program’s or department’s effectiveness, student retention is one of the more controversial measures.  Particularly, retention often seems inherently at odds with our roles as college professors since—fairly or not—issues of retention are conflated with concerns over grade inflation and academic rigor.  Yet, as studies show, universities lose students over the first two years of college for a variety of reasons: financial, the absence of strong academic mentoring and peer relationships, the strains of commuting, as well as family pressures and responsibilities that threaten to derail academic pursuits.

The fool's journey has been characterized as one that opens the seeker to the "infinite but self-disclosing mystery" of the soul (Wolf-Salin 2005). Current social discourse propelling discussions and enactments of gender fluidity and feminine empowerment coupled with the ubiquitous, problematic, and potential-filled documentation of the self on social media forms a situation where the most private of enterprises (interior discovery) is rendered a perpetual public act, surveilled, critiqued, and disseminated potentially by the entire world.

The Villanova Center for Liberal Education (VCLE) at Villanova University is sponsoring a one-day conference on W. E. B. DuBois and Liberal Education. We have chosen to celebrate the work of W. E. B.

His writings encompassed and bridged philosophy, sociology, literature, political science, history, music, economics, Africana Studies, and cultural studies. He was also a journalist, editor, organizer, and political activist. 2018 is the 150th anniversary of his birth.

Action : Arrest

Performance, protest, and the law

A one-day symposium

Keynote Speaker: Jennifer Doyle (University of California, Riverside)

Join us in exploring the role of action and arrest in protest, law, and performance. Taking place during the year of the Suffragette centenary, the fifty-year anniversary of the Paris ‘68 uprisings, and a period of burgeoning civil unrest and political uncertainty in the UK and worldwide, Action: Arrest looks to assess and reassess the relationship between performance, protest, and the law. Inspired by their compelling dualities, the symposium aims to open up a new set of questions that may further complicate the relationship between these terms.

With his signature bullwhip and fedora, the familiar sounds of his orchestral anthem, and his eventful explorations into the arcana of world religions, Indiana Jones – archeologist, adventurer, and ophidiophobe – has become one of the most recognizable heroes of the silver screen.  Since his debut in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones has appeared in three sequels, and Steven Spielberg has recently announced that he will soon begin production on a fifth Indiana Jones film.  Along the way, the character has spawned a raft of children’s novels, cartoon and live-action television series, and video and role-playing games.  Despite the longevity and popularity of the Indiana Jones franchise, however, it has rarely been the focus of academic

deadline for submissions:

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.
