Florida Southwestern's Department of Humanities and Fine Arts is proud to announce its third colloquium in the Education for a New Humanity series, an event designed to foster productive encounters between disciplines as they join together in discussion on challenging topics. The focus for the 2016 colloquium will be evolution/devolution/revolution. This year’s colloquium will explore these dynamics from an array of disciplinary perspectives, and through a number of formats—lectures, a talking circle, music and performance art events—in hopes of demonstrating the range of strategies for dealing with complex questions about the nature of knowledge. In this way the colloquium seeks not to provide facile answers for these questions, but to provide an introductory invitation to continued dialog.
Funding for this program was provided through a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
