ACTC is an international liberal arts association committed to advancing undergraduate education through the use of core texts—world classics or texts of major cultural significance. Our annual conference brings together about 300 scholars from the US and abroad to share intellectual insights and teaching strategies. (Over 20% of our members are philosophers.) If you enjoy collegial conversations about memorable texts from poetry to physics, you will enjoy the ACTC conference.
I strongly encourage you to submit a proposal for a paper. Our papers are short: five pages, double-spaced. Papers are read in panel sessions around seminar tables and allow ample time for open conversations about ideas, texts, student learning, and academic programs. Proposals are even shorter: a few sentences and an indication of a core text. They can be submitted on your registration form at:
J. Scott Lee, ACTC’s Executive Director will be glad to work with you or your colleagues on questions about proposals, papers, audience, and ACTC. Feel free to call him at 908-359-7560 or email him with any questions at email@example.com .
