Journal Club Picks Back Up Friday

Posted by: Anna | November 10, 2013 | No Comment |

Journal Club picks back up this Friday, November 15, 4-5:30 p.m. in Tilford 117 (this Friday only). Dialogue has been engaging and enlightening, so let’s keep it up! Hope to see you there. More info about Journal Club is below and at 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. on the following dates: November 15, November 22, and December 6. We will meet in Tilford 115, with the exception on November 15 when we will meet in Tilford 117.
