“Cultivating the Just and Peaceable Self: Understanding Transformation and Transforming Understanding in Research and Practice”

October 15-17, 2015, in Harrisonburg, Virginia, USA

James Madison University

Taking place in the heart of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley during its fall foliage season, the 2015 PJSA conference is part of a three-year initiative (link is external) entitled Cultivating the Globally Sustainable Self: Summit Series on Transformative Teaching, Training, and Learning in Research and Practice.

Highly consistent with the mission and values of PJSA, as well as the overarching goals of the summit series, Cultivating the Just and Peaceable Self will bring together key stakeholders in pursuit of two interrelated goals: (1) Understanding the Content and Process of Transformation; (2) Transforming Understanding into Research and Practice. To date, we've received a large number of high quality proposals, and also are delighted to announce a stellar line-up of keynote speakers, which thus far includes: Catherine Barnes (link is external); David Cortright (link is external); John Dirkx (link is external); and Emily Welty (link is external).

(for more details about this year's theme, please read the full call for proposals HERE)
