Paula Gouveia, Dean, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences
We are proud to say that we are a part of every student’s experience at Humber, whether you are enrolled in one of our LAS programs (offered through our General Arts and Science Department, English Language Centre, Academic Upgrading or the Research Analyst Post-Graduate Program) or you are enrolled in another of Humber’s innovative and in-demand certificate, diploma or degree programs. The School of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers courses in English, Professional Communications, Math, Literature, Social Sciences, Humanities, Science, and many more discipline areas.
The possibilities are limitless because the faculty in LAS are dedicated to providing you with an opportunity to explore curriculum that will enhance your academic, personal and professional life. We firmly believe that everyone can reach their personal and professional goals with the knowledge, skills and experience that are at the core of a post secondary education that develops learners through a combined focus on an applied and liberal education. Employers demand it and our students deserve it.
Actually, that's a myth!" Who of us doesn't relish the chance to dispel a falsehood, correct a misconception, or overturn an established truth? What topics, theories, or frameorks do you comprehend better than your colleagues? What received wisdom ought to be toppled? What obstacles block those wishing to challenge "certainties"? On the other hand, are some things certain after all?
The President's Lecture Series (PLS) is a faculty initiative of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences that is sponsored by the Office of the President. The lecture series is planned, organized, and administered by a committee of faculty volunteers who are guided by the PLS Mission Statement.
The conference aims to facilitate cross-disciplinary discussion among scholars and researchers who study topics on the themes of truth and lies. Some emergent themes to be explored include, but are not limited to: contested meaning, repressed truth, testimony studies, trauma, victimhood, distortion, “lies that tell the truth”, revisionism, selective memory, gaslighting.
