>The role of the humanities and arts in civic discourse.
>์Did you, too, O friend, suppose democracy was only for elections, for
>politics, and for a party name? I say democracy is only of use there that it
>may pass on and come to its flower and fruit in manners, in the highest
>forms of interaction between [people], and their beliefs ๑ in religion,
>literature, colleges and schools -- democracy in all public and private life
>. . .๎ ๑ Walt Whitman
>WE WANT YOUR IDEAS on the role of artists, writers, academics, critics,
>philosophers, and all thinkers in the current discourse taking place in
>America. Are we relevant in imagining democracy? Is there a real-world
>application for our knowledge? What is it and how do we, across disciplines,
>We are living in a ์democracy,๎ but what does that mean? Should we foster
>unity or dissent? Why are all we so AFRAID of each other? What are some ways
>we can break through the fear being fostered by the media and world events
>to create the democratic society so many people believe in? What questions
>do you have about the state of academic affairs in relation to the times we
>are living in?
>The co-chairs of the Crisis Carnival invite papers, fiction, poetry, and art
>work that further our understanding of the intersection between the idea and
