>Can revolution and evolution coexist? Revolution recalls radical change
>while evolution signifies gradual transformation.  The potent political and
>scientific terms are so well-known that the mutual origins of these words
>are often forgotten. This conference seeks to address the common roots and
>fundamental disjunctions of revolution and evolution within the Arts,
>Humanities, Social Sciences and Education through a new look at
>interdisciplinary methods.
>
>
>
>This graduate conference will explore the links between world-changing
>ideologies in the Arts and Humanities, aiming to generate new perspectives
>and create fresh communication between seemingly unrelated fields.  Possible
>questions to consider include: What is the nature of cultural R/Evolution?
>Can art change the world? Can the Arts and Humanities produce radical new
>knowledge? How can the effects of material and ideological change be traced?
>How do traditional research fields or areas approach changes in research
>theory and methodology?  Can interdisciplinary methods in research better
>record innovation and change? How do R/Evolutions impact society and those
>who write about it?
>
>
