Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life 2014 National Conference

Submission/Application Deadline: 
Tuesday, April 1, 2014 (All day)

The 2014 Imagining America conference, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, October 9–11, is animated by three keywords:Organizing. Culture. Change. These keywords represent concentrations of energy and activity across higher education and within the IA consortium—contested terrains that demand critical discourse and analysis. Conference organizers invite and challenge Imagining America consortium members, and their institutional and community partners, to sharpen our collective understanding of the nature and promise of organizing culture change; to provoke conversation and debate around the many meanings of these keywords; to explore the distinctive contributions that methodologies, concepts, theories, and knowledge from arts, humanities, and design fields make to the work of organizing culture change; and to illuminate how organizing culture change can transform higher education’s role in the work of democracy.

Imagining America is currently accepting proposals. The deadline for submission is April 1, 2014. For complete details, and to submit a propsoal, click here.
