Hope and Fear: Interdisciplinary Conference in the Humanities

updated: 
Monday, November 7, 2016 - 10:09am
Carroll College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

Our social, political, and religious climate has been dominated recently by a mood of collective fear, regarding everything from economic anxiety, the outbreak of new and frightening diseases, mass shootings, social tension and violence between law enforcement and communities of color, environmental and technological dangers, and the threat of terrorism both foreign and domestic.  Where is there room for hope in such times of uncertainty and fear?  Indeed, what would hope look like?  What might the interplay be between hope and fear as we reflect on the past, present, and future not only of this country, but of humanity as a whole?  How might respect and compassion overcome division and mistrust in our discourse and interactions?

Composition theory has gone through many changes, from an affiliation with historical rhetoric, a shift to process, then post-process, and social consciousness. Technological advances have allowed composition theory to move more solidly into the visual realm, and courses and classrooms have adapted in exciting ways to account for this shift. As a result, both visual and digital rhetorics are more prevalent in college composition than ever before. However, academic writing in higher education, at times, stigmatizes some representations of these rhetorics, which can confuse students about when the rhetorics are acceptable and when they are not.

Liberal Education Conference

Department of General Education, Mount Royal University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 22, 2017

Many champions of liberal education defend against the reduction of education to purely instrumental purposes. An undergraduate education, they argue, is an incubator for a democratic ethos and it can, at its best, encourage a critical understanding of one's own beliefs, while taking seriously beliefs that shape the lives of others. In this way, the spine of liberal education is hortatory: a call to action that seeks to preserve what is best and to critically reflect and alter those features of our collective inheritance that fall short of our ideals. Thinking beyond one's self-interest, being an engaged citizen, and cultivating the capacities to integrate and appreciably assess data seem hallmarks of the liberally educated person.

Texts, Contexts, and Subtexts: Charlotte Perkins Gilman in Her Time

Charlotte Perkins Gilman Society CFP American Literature Association (ALA) 28th Annual Conference
May 25-28, 2017

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s articles, letters, papers, and library underscore a central quality of her diverse and prolific career: her works were deeply engaged with the social and scientific milieus of her time. An avid reader, enthusiastic learner, and active member within her own intellectual communities, Gilman often reached out to those whose work she admired – as well as to those whose work she found lacking. Through her lectures, publications, and correspondence, Gilman impacted a broad cross-section of scholarly and literary discourses.
