In the ancient Greek education there was a focus on art education such as musical education and drama education. This primary art education is the rudiment of aesthetic education. It aims at leading students to be self-regulated and be able to get rid of all faults. Plato believes that students would get the habit to love the beautiful thing and integrate it with their mind unknowingly and prevent the influence from the evil, the debauchery, the contemptibility, and the obscenity. Plato thinks that the best education is music education, for music is to look for the beauty and the good in heart and the person with good music education is smart to find out which the ugly is and which the beautiful is.

Gumbo & Zydeco: Interdisciplinary Magic
Taking Flight speaks to Deleuze and Guattari’s petition to leave bounded territories and to connect and to create and to “establish a logic of the AND.” Privileging intense and transformative encounters with others, they ask us not to cling to the state apparatus that reinforces the normative or the binary machines which rigidify us (man-woman, adult-child, straight-queer etc.), but to invent more supple and fluid connections, which, in turn, create new concepts, new thought, and new experiences. This invitation for anomalous creations and diversifications across and beyond disciplines ruptures genealogies, totalities, and unifications.
The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) invites submission of abstracts for its annual conference, on any aspect of digital humanities. This includes, but is not limited to:
The question of academic success and the factors that trigger it is a constant preoccupation of researchers in the fields of education, psychology, sociology, and even neurology. Oftentimes, they have been encumbered by the ambiguity of the term and, implicitly, by the relativeness of the extant definitions. More often than not, academic success is related to academic performance displayed in the student’s ability to reproduce acquired knowledge, by means of graded examinations or in intelligence tests. However, we are faced with the obvious fact that not all students who enjoyed academic success (as it is understood judging by the two aspects mentioned above) also get to social success.
The First Galway Digital Cultures Initiative Conference
The Moore Institute, National University of Ireland, Galway, 11-12 May 2017
The University of South Florida is pleased to announce a call for presentations for its Symposium on “Re-Shaping the Future of Graduate Education in the Humanities.”
There is no shortage of experts declaring the death of the Humanities on university campuses throughout the United States. Politicians question the “value” of a humanities-based graduate education while students uneasily balance a need for professionalization with a desire for intellectual exploration. A defeatism has often hampered students and professors as they both struggle to understand the shifting dynamics of graduate education in the Humanities.
