On behalf of my colleagues at St. Thomas University, I'm writing to remind you about the Call for Papers for an International Conference on the Liberal Arts to take place September 30-October 2, 2010. The theme of the conference is reflected in its title: "Looking Back and Moving Forward: The Next 100 Years of Liberal Arts - Confronting the Challenges". This conference is also an exciting part of St Thomas University's 100th Anniversary celebrations.
The deadline for abstract submissions is DECEMBER 15, 2009. These can be in the form of an academic paper, experiential workshop, or poster.
The four Keynote Speakers at our Conference will be the following well known scholars: Ronald Wright, Henry Giroux, Phil McShane, and Dorothy Smith.
The Conference will be located on the St Thomas Campus with the Banquet at the Delta Hotel in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Feel free to visit our new website at www.stu.ca/libconf for further updates.
I have incluced a copy of the formal Call for Papers in both English and French. Click Here for English; Click Here for French. We would greatly appreciate it if you would pass on information concerning the conference to any individuals, groups, organizations, or distribution lists that you think may be interested in this event.
We look forward to hearing from you!
