CALL FOR PAPERS: INTEGRAL STUDIES

2007 Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Association Conference

According to the website of the California Institute of Integral Studies, "Integral studies are a response to the
growing need to synthesize the fragmentary aspects of contemporary thought and culture into a meaningful
whole. […] In exploring the interplay of mind, body, and spirit, integral education connects the spiritual and
practical dimensions of intellectual life. The integration of the wisdom traditions presents an evolution of
consciousness that has never been more relevant and crucial than it is today" (www.ciis.edu).
