Convocatoria: Congreso/Sesión de Trabajo XI sobre las Relationes entre

Esta será una diversa Sesión de Trabajo, por lo tanto se invitan

humanidades y las ciencias en el mundo hispánico. Favor de enviar

 A Working Conference should foment more effective dissemination and
integration of knowledge, since everyone present can actively contribute
to the creative process, leading to a dialogue between humanists and
scientists from around the world. Previous Working Conferences have been
held in the USA, in Santa Fe , New Mexico, in New Brunswick , New
Jersey , St. Petersburg, Florida, and in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico ; in
Puebla and in Mexico City , Mexico ; in San Ramón , Costa Rica ; in
Buenos Aires and Pinamar , Argentina ; in Cumaná, Venezuela .
 
The most successful papers at Ometeca Working Conferences bring together
aspects of the sciences and the humanities in such a way that they take
us beyond particular insights gained in each discipline. Papers that
juxtapose and show parallels between aspects of the sciences and the
humanities should do so in order to illuminate larger theoretical
questions or suggest theory that lead us toward a new praxis. Historical
surveys are not useful for their own sake, but should have relevance to a
particular argument or larger interdisciplinary interest. Authors are
encouraged to take chances and to explore new possibilities without
sacrificing the rigor and standards of their disciplines.
 
In order to participate in the Working Conference, a person does not need
to present a paper. The number of actual presenters will be limited,
since papers are not read before an audience. Instead, they are
distributed to participants before the working conference so that they
may be studied, and at the Working Conference they are discussed with the
participants.
