Daniel Kontowski, “Liberal Arts and Sciences in Europe”

For a long time, liberal arts and sciences education was 'Distinctively American', yet the last three decades saw other parts of the world introducing a range of educational innovations all alighting upon some version of this name. In this talk, I will argue that we do not really know what 'liberal arts' means today, but we have ample resources for inspiration if we find this an attractive direction for this identity, paying particular attention to the European liberal arts scene (www.liberal-arts.eu).

The first part of the talk briefly reviews the organizational, conceptual, and historical landscape of liberal arts outside the US showing three-dimensional diversity that some could call chaos.

The second part provides an overview of the visions of eight educational pioneers from eight European countries who were first to introduce liberal arts innovations in their countries after the symbolic censure of 1989.

In conclusion, I will make the case for seeing liberal arts as a countermovement to traditional structure and pedagogical approach of a research university, and ask how the tenets of ontological complexity, transformative pedagogy, and organizational alternative can be translated into educational innovation in diverse higher education institutions — including yours.

Майкл Шапира — профессор SAS, получивший степень PhD по философии образования в Колумбийском университете (США). Он работает на стыке философии и образования и исследует теоретические и исторические основания современного университета.

Mike Shapira, “Experiments in Excellence in Public Universities: The University of California Example”

The lesson will involve a short lecture and a group exercise to think deeply about Greenfield Projects within the context of existing institutions and in relation to existing historical trajectories for higher education. The lesson will begin with a short lecture on the development of the University of California system in the United States in the 1960s. I will place the University of California in the general context of post-war development to describe what is often referred to as the "Golden Age of Higher Education" in the United States. The best policy example of this is the California Master Plan, which showed that excellence in higher education could be achieved through public, and not just private funding. Right in the middle of this Golden Age the University of California introduced two new universities – The University of California at Santa Cruz and the University of California at San Diego – and the system quickly became embroiled is crisis as the student movements of the 1960s swept across the globe.

The second part of the lesson will use this history to ask some more philosophical questions about the development of new institutions during times of change. When, if ever, is it appropriate to add experimental elements into institutions that are created mostly to meet needs of growth? In what ways can it be advantageous to found in institution during a time of social upheaval?
