6th ANNUAL MIDWESTERN GRADUATE LIBERAL STUDIES CONFERENCE
The Graduate Liberal Studies programs of Indiana University invite you to participate in the sixth annual Midwestern Graduate Liberal Studies Conference.
This Year's Theme Information
The theme of this year’s conference is Fleeting Time, Enduring Issues. Our goal is to inspire thought and discussion about the contrast and tension between the rush of events and the scholarly need to be careful and patient. That care is partly a devotion to the deeper, lasting issues. We try as scholars to be responsible through our factual accuracy and considered judgment, but we are sometimes motivated by the heat of current events. Ultimately, we are often trying to capture and define fleeting events because of the enduring issues they seem to embody or express.
We seek papers and presentations on a wide range of topics. All presentations, though, should comment, at least in small part, on the issue of Fleeting Time, Enduring Issues. In other words, even in a paper that investigates a specific question, we would expect the presenter to (re)frame the presentation with some brief introductory or concluding reflections on how that topic might be considered in light of our conference theme of temporality.
Students from graduate liberal studies programs in the Midwest region are invited to present their work at the MGLSC. All types of work will be considered: empirical research, literature reviews, case studies, works of fiction, multimedia works, etc.
Please contact one of the members of the MGLSC organizing committee if you have any questions.
