Major civilizations of the world – Indian and Greek – based their models of education on inter-relatedness of various disciplines. However, with the focus on specialization and technology, liberal arts suffered at the expense of science and technology. But recently the discipline of Liberal arts and Human sciences has attained an unprecedented popularity in various Universities all over the world. The present world of the 21st century is strongly underpinned by rapid developments in the field of science and technology and accompanied by the ever-spreading roots of a global economy. The question then arises as to what role liberal education can play in the world mired in technological innovations spawned by globalization.

Writing the Black Country

The University of Wolverhampton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing the Black Country is a blog edited by Dr Paul McDonald and R. M. Francis, from the Centre of Transnational and Transcultural Research at University of Wolverhampton in the UK. It's designed to showcase writing about England's industrial Midlands, and we are interested particularly in poetry and short prose pieces that focus on specific areas within the region.

We're less interested in writing about the region generally, but are looking for site, place or area specific work. For example, using a town, a street, a site as a point of departure or as setting for a work of fiction or poetry.

In time, this blog will transition, becoming an online, interactive literary map.
