ACMHE Conference: Imagining Humane Institutions
October 5, 2018 - October 7, 2018
The ACMHE conference is an annual interdisciplinary forum for all aspects of scholarship and research on contemplative methods in higher education, with a special focus on sharing how contemplative practices can support and sustain learning communities that foster a more just, peaceful, sustainable, and compassionate world.
At the 2018 conference, Imagining Humane Institutions: Connection, Social Action and Scholarship Rooted in Contemplative Practices, we intend to look at ways to expand our community of students, faculty and staff, across disciplines, institutions, and beyond. We will investigate how contemplative pedagogy and epistemology can create greater richness and depth of knowledge. In this conference we will also aim to explore how we can transform the fear and discomfort that often arises in difficult conversations regarding privilege and oppression into greater understanding and the development of more effective strategies for addressing social justice issues.
