Florida SouthWestern's Department of Humanities and Fine Arts is proud to announce its fourth 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 broad notion of Borders/Bordered/Borderless was chosen as our theme for 2018 in hopes that its suggestion of inclusion/exclusion, the contained and the contiguous, the native, the neighboring, and the nomadic, would offer creative freedom for presenters and generate meaningful insights. After a toxic and divisive election year, it seems more important than ever to offer an occasion for students, faculty and community members to come together and explore these dynamics through a number of formats-lectures, film screenings, panel discussions, performance art events and talking circles. Our goal is to demonstrate a range of strategies for dealing with complex questions in order to empower our community to engage socio-political issues with critical thought, civil discourse, a rigorous pursuit of the truth, and creative resistance. In this way the colloquium seeks not to provide facile answers for these questions, but to provide an introductory invitation to continued dialog.
