Crisis: Catalyst for Creativity and Innovation
An International Conference on Interdisciplinary Research

We are currently seeking abstracts for presentations on any topic within
the broadly conceived theme of “Crisis: Catalyst for Creativity and
Innovation.”

 

Throughout history people have faced enormous, even catastrophic crises.
The human spirit is resilient, strong and creative. What has the human race
done in the past to overcome crisis? What might the human race do in
current crises to find solutions? What events cause crises and what sorts
of literature, economic solutions, religious movements, humanitarian
efforts, political changes, educational reforms or scientific breakthroughs
have occurred in response to these crises? It is recognized that not all
solutions and movements have been positive. Have people been wise in
constructing positive solutions to crisis? The conference is
interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary and accepts papers relating to
these topics, both current and historical.

We accept papers from academic researchers and university teachers, as well
as intellectuals working outside of academia. Students are also encouraged
to apply and participate. The language of the conference is English but
papers may also be presented in Lithuanian. Presentations will be no longer
than 15 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes allocated for questions.
Papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in
the journal LCC Liberal Arts Studies.
