Proposal Topics

Arts, Humanism, and Culture

We seek to explore the connectivity of arts, humanism, and culture, within contemporary society, in order to expand on the impact each of these threads has in/on education.

We invite proposals that address or use the following questions as a point of departure for scholarly papers, panels, workshops, presentations and/or performances:

  • What is the place of arts and culture in higher education? Does it only belong in the social or entertainment realm?
  • How do we value humanism in higher education?
  • How do individuals within society express their human experience through the arts?
  • Is the advancement of humanism possible without the influence of the arts?
  • How do artist use their practice as a vehicle to extend or re-enforce the human experience?
  • Do artistic values and cultural practices impact the human experience? How?
