Call for Abstracts: 'Re-enchanting the Academy' Conference

The organisers of the conference 'Re-Enchanting the Academy' at Canterbury Christ Church University have put out a second call for abstracts

The new deadline for submitting proposals is: Friday May 29th. The panel will respond by Friday June 26th.


This conference addresses how (or indeed why) modern universities might reclaim this sense of universal value through cultivating imagination and intuition as modes of practice, learning, and enchantment. Can we create a poetics of learning that touches human souls, in both sciences and arts? Can we understand studying and learning as sacred activities, which allow individuals to reflect on meanings in their lives? Does such a quest step beyond the personal and entail a social and cultural
critique?
