Theme: The Arts and Responsibility
Keynote speaker: Roger Shimomura
The "creative class" has emerged as a hot job market in the 21st century 
economy. Artists and designers increasingly shape not only the art of the 
gallery or museum, but also consumer products, public and personal spaces, 
films and TV programs, and corporate images. With the rise of "new media," 
images have become more powerful, and new non-linear, digital, and 
interactive modes of storytelling have challenged us all to new standards 
of visual and media literacy. This long reach of the arts into everyday and 
public life raises a variety of ethical issues pertaining to the social 
responsibility of artists and those who teach them. Government funding, 
artistic collaboration and appropriation, sustainable design, freedom of 
expression, ethnic representation, and commodification are just a sample of 
the topics that arise as we attempt to assess the impact of artists on 
society. How can we encourage aspiring artists and designers to anticipate 
these issues and respond with a strong sense of social responsibility?

Submissions may speak to the theme of the Conference or to other issues 
regarding ethics across the curriculum and may be abstracts, papers, or 
other standard forms of presentation.

Submissions should be formatted for blind review, postmarked no later than 
September30th, 2005, and sent to the Secretary-Treasurer of the Society, 
Steven Scales, at sscales at towson.edu. Phone: 410.704.2752

The Society publishes Teaching Ethics, and papers for conferences may be 
considered for publication.
