Wendy Matlock

Artful Strategies/Necessary Risks: The Shifting Borders between Success and

April 20th and 21st on the campus of California State University, Sacramento

Definitions of failure and success are not bound by timeless, objective
criteria but ultimately lie in the eyes of the observer answering to ever
changing parameters of time and culture. Thus what accounts for success in
one context may well be construed as failure in other contexts, by other
observers, or by succeeding generations. The conference aims to lend a forum
to ideas that examine the shifting borders between success and failure in
literature, the arts, history, anthropology, sociology, law, politics,
religion and related fields.
