An arts and humanities summit has been set for this fall that promises to bring outrage to all involved.
The 2016 North Dakota University System Arts & Humanities "OUTRAGE" Summit will feature papers, presentations and projects aiming to engage outrage through critical thought or performance. OUTRAGE Summit organizers have called for presenters to "flaunt civility, and to reflect seriously on why outrage matters for the arts and humanities today."
Richard Rothaus, NDUS interim vice chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs, said the summit was meant to engage faculty, staff, students and members of the public in outrage and what it means both personally and academically.
"North Dakota does not need emotionless artists. We need artists who burn with love, boil with rage, lose their temper, and embrace the sublime. North Dakota needs humanities that are human," Rothaus said. "We need scholars who lose themselves in their work, decry the depths of human actions, and exalt the best we have to offer. Please join us for the 2016 NDUS Arts and Humanities Summit, and bring your OUTRAGE."
The event is scheduled for Thursday, September 29 and will take place at University of North Dakota's Memorial Union. For more information and registration details, please visit http://und.edu/academics/extended-learning/conference-services/arts-humanities-summit/.
