George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

DATES: May 25-27, 2006

The inaugural Narrative Matters conference in 2002 drew 200 participants; the second in 2004 increased to 300. We now are calling for papers and proposals for the third conference in 2006. Our aim is to provide a forum for conversation among theorists, students, researchers, and practitioners using narrative perspectives in such diverse fields as literature, the social sciences, education, journalism, healthcare, psychology, history, and the fine arts.
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in narrative modes of thought and expression. The Narrative Turn has influenced the humanities, the social sciences, and the health sciences. The third Narrative Matters conference, to be held at Acadia in 2006, will explore current ideas about narrative - or story - in various aspects of human experience.
Proposals are invited for papers, presentations, symposia or posters on a variety of topics from narrative in fiction to narrative modes of understanding human experience. We welcome proposals for papers and panels on topics that might include (but are not limited to) the following:
* The place of story in education, literature, politics, religion and the media
* Narrative and diversity (e.g., culture, ethnicity, gender, age)
* Collecting and analyzing stories as data in qualitative research
* Narrative perspectives on memory, identity, and community
* Narratives in therapeutic processes and relationships
* Narratives of place
Proposals, and the presentations themselves, can be in either English or French. Les propositions, ainsi que les communications elles-mêmes, peuvent être en anglais ou en français.
