The University of Humanist Studies (Utrecht, The Netherlands) is organizing a conference about Empowering Humanity: Work in progress on 8th and 9th July 2002.
The conference aims to discuss some of the major issues addressed in the university's research programme 'Humanism, Meanings of Life, Care and Citizenship'; such as:
how can academic research be combined with a political, moral and existential programme?
what does 'humanist inspiration' imply in such research?
how can humanist studies as an academic discipline be combined with humanist practices?
They will also be discussed during the four workshops:
Workshop I: Humanism in local contexts: theories and practices.
Workshop II: ‘Humanistics as a new discipline’.
Workshop III: Equality and Diversity
Workshop IV: Quality of life and wellbeing.
The programme of the conference is diverse and will consist of keynote speaches, paperpresentations, group discussions, and plenaries.
Our site, http://www.uvh.nl , features on-line registration and more information about the programme and more details about the papers. You’ll also find some information about accommodation and paying the conference fee.
