The Value of Work: Exploring Critical Issues

Call for Papers
This conference aims to bring together people from a wide range of disciplines to focus
on a fundamental aspect of human life: work.

Work has pervasive influence on human life. Where we live, how we live, how we learn and
how we see the world is strongly shaped by the work we do. Since the industrial
revolution some of the expected benefits of the implementation of technology, and
contemporary management have not been realised.

2nd Global Conference
Making Sense Of: Suicide

Monday 31st October – Wednesday 2nd November 2011
Hotel Angelo, Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Papers
Suicide, the deliberate and intentional act of ending one's life, is an assault on our ideas of what living is about. Whether we believe that we have the right to end our own life because we no longer wish to live, or that suicide is never morally permissible, the fact that people can arrange their deaths and that some do, challenges us to think about the nature of life, and of death.

Service learning and internship experiences have a successful and established history in American higher education—particularly in literature and writing classrooms. John Dewey provided early theory. Vita Dutton Scudder, an early 20th-Century professor at Wellesley College implemented service learning projects in her literature and writing courses (see Julia Garbas) and the late 20th-Century work of Bruce Herzberg, Linda Adler-Kassner, Ellen Cushman, Thomas Deans, and others explores initiatives taking students beyond the walls of traditional classrooms to connect writing to community and develop civically-minded citizens.
