Seeking papers that explore pedagogies and practical experiences that promote the utility and value of the liberal arts in the community. In a period where the intellectual is viewed with some suspicion, and disciplines are valued according to how much they relate to a career, the study of literature and language is often dismissed as simply an esoteric endeavor. This panel will consider how the study of the language and literature make clear the immediate cultural consequences of knowledge. Papers might consider and describe how the study of rhetoric/composition or literature has been used to change perceptions about the role of language and argument-and scholarship-in our lives and communities.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: As of December 31, 2006, Americans will need a passport for all air and sea travel to and from Canada
