Journal Club Meets this Friday

Posted by: Anna | November 17, 2013 | No Comment |

Journal Club meets for the second-to-last time this Fall term this Friday, November 22, in Tilford 115 from 4-5:30 p.m. All are welcome. For more info, visit gonzaga.edu/journalclub.

Journal Club is an opportunity for engaging with colleagues in a context of curiosity, uncertainty, and depth. Come explore interesting and unpredictable topics that stretch your horizons! It is a place for anyone in the Gonzaga community to explore ideas and research that interests them. Journal Club effectively invites our community to say, _”This is what I am reading, this is what I am interested in, and/or this is what I am thinking.”_

All Gonzaga students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. Attendees are invited to present a journal article, book chapter, or other scholarly work to colleagues, or just show up and participate in the dialogue. The transdisciplinary nature of this endeavor is meant to offer a rich context for surprise and delight. We explore key themes in leadership studies that focus on problems, questions, and/or speculations about:

  • Influence (e.g., metaphysical, physical/biological, socio-cultural)
  • Power (e.g., historical/traditional, normative, size/scale, role/reputation)
  • Purpose (e.g., meaning, intentions, teleology)

We believe that these themes are broad enough to encourage anyone from any field to participate in our conversation. Everyone who wants a chance to present will be able to do so. At the completion of presentations we engage in conversation and dialogue.

For the rest of fall 2013, we will meet on Friday afternoons from 4-5:30 p.m. in Tilford 115 on the following dates: November 22 and December 6.
