The Ethics of Racial Identity: PAMLA Special Session
Polymath is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to interdisciplinarity, published in quarterly installments in an electronic format at no charge to its readers. The journal celebrates the oft-neglected connections between humanities (Language, Literature, History, Philosophy, Speech and Communication), social sciences (History, Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Social Work), physical sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics), and the arts (Dance, Theatre, Music, Visual Arts) where the disciplines can unite, collaborate, and engage with each other towards shared research-oriented and educational goals.
Changing Lives Through Literature is a nationally recognized alternative sentencing program for criminal offenders founded in 1991 on the power of literature to transform lives. CLTL sentences criminal offenders to a series of literature seminars instead of traditional probation. Studies have confirmed that program graduates are half as likely to commit additional crimes than their counterparts in the justice system.
