Call for Proposals: 2019 Faculty Resource Network Symposium

2019 FRN National Symposium: Critical Conversations and the Academy

When: November 22-23, 2019
Where: Miami, Florida
Submission Deadline: April 22, 2019

Conversation has always been at the core of education. Discussion-based seminars, in which students develop their critical thinking through thoughtful dialogue, serve as a paradigm for learning in higher education. Yet today conversation is increasingly being replaced by contention. Instead of civil discourse and respectful disagreement, we are witnessing a bifurcation of opinion into isolated echo chambers fueled by social media and the 24-hour news cycle. At this critical juncture, we need to ask the following questions: What is the role of the Academy in cultivating conversations on campus and in the classroom? How can our teaching provide students with models of productive conversations?
