What Sustains Us?
Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota
22-24 September 2011
Imagining America (IA) invites higher education affiliates (faculty, students, staff, and administrators) and community partners (individuals and organizations) to participate in our twelfth annual national conference, September 22-24, 2011, in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, co-hosted by Macalester College and the University of Minnesota.
Conference Theme and Structure
Through the theme of this year’s conference, “What Sustains Us?” we will convene conversations, collaborations, and actions about a central issue of our time – sustainability. Participants will engage a broad range of questions about sustainability: environmental concerns (in both campus and community contexts), our existential and vocational condition, our social and institutional relations regarding humanities and arts practices, as well as concerns of globalization and the often-invisible labor that supports us.
