The Liberal Arts and Sciences Education and Core Texts in the European Context Conference will take place on Friday and Saturday, September 11-12, at Amsterdam University College, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The conference will examine the role of “core texts” within the framework of liberal arts and sciences education as a way to meet the challenge of modern higher education in a unique way. Core texts are defined as those which have or are likely to stand the test of time and that provide the foundation for shared discourse within either Western or non-Western traditions. According to the organizers, the conference welcomes papers that address “reflection on questions about the meaning of a well-rounded liberal education, the role and meaning of core texts in European higher education, pedagogical aims, teaching pedagogies, assessment techniques, the selection of texts, core texts and big questions, and so forth.”
