deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2023

Henri Bergson was a French philosopher and winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in 1927. Bergson’s lectures were popular with not only academia, but public audiences as well. Bergson influenced the literary work of authors like Borges, Proust, and Woolf as well as the philosophical work of Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and Deleuze. In addition, Bergson, a talented mathematician, debated Einstein on the nature of relativity. Bergson’s work has had instrumental influence in the virtual reality gaming industry. Considering Bergson’s influence in art and science, this panel offers unbounded opportunities to explore and unpack his narratives as they relate to any number of themes related to shifting perspectives.

Since people with certain deformities have been part and parcel of mankind then why they should be ignored, oppressed, and marginalized. They have even outshined in every field including literature, science, music, dance, sports, and politics. Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, George Washington, Hellen Keller, Franklin D Roosevelt, Frida Kahlo, Ludwig Van Beethovan, Walt Disney, Sudha Chandran, Ravindra Jain, Arunima Sinha are a few names who never allowed their physical weakness to take over their spirit. They successfully created their own history.
