Liberal Arts Conference

International Conference on the Liberal Arts:

Confronting the Challenges

The Next 100 years of Liberal arts

Sept 30 - Oct 2, 2010

St. Thomas University, Fredericton, NB

An exceptional program!

Liberal Arts education has been challenged in recent years by neo-liberalism
and corporatization, cutbacks in public funding, changes in the student
population, and internationalization. Professors and administrators are
responding in diverse ways that include re-engagement with the values and
roles of the Liberal Arts, innovations in curriculum and pedagogical
approaches, creative and differential use of technology, and the practical
matters of winning public support and retaining students.

Keynote Speakers:

. Ronald Wright The Future of the Past: escaping the parochialism
of the present

. Henry Giroux Beyond Bailouts: Rethinking the Neoliberal
Subject Higher Education

. Dorothy Smith Thinking it Through - Retaining Critical Thinking
and Social Conscience

. Phil McShane Liberal Arts: the Heart of Future Science
