THE CONFERENCE/CALL FOR PAPER

Faculties of Arts/Humanities Association o Nigerian Universities invites you to participate in an International Conference with the theme: RE-HUMANISING HUMANITY. The Arts and Humanities provide the foundation for character formation, ethical learning based on sound moral judgment, cultivation of high sensus communis which serves as a counterpoint for primitive pursuits of materialism and makes humans more sensate and able to manage their minds and bodies to enhance the social and emotional intelligence which smart technologies cannot replace. Humanity is the evolutionary epic of mammalian ancestry, magnificent, fragile and steered by the demands of animal instinct. It is equipped by the brain, the sensory system and cultural behavior which places humans as higher animal species of the global fauna imbued with such attributes as community organization, family life, etiquette, hospitality, athletic sports, greetings, cooking, government, status differentiation, trade, education among others. In highlighting the basic dichotomy between man and society, it seems that the human person is fundamentally antisocial and as such society must domesticate humanity. For the most part, society must refine and adroitly check individuals’ basic impulses into culturally valuable assets. A society’s wellbeing depends very much on how it is able to manage the negative and basic impulses and where they are not checked by institutional arrangements; both the society and the human beings inhabiting such will be the worst for it. Traditional societies without the formal school system had several agencies for managing these negative and antisocial traits in the human person for the good fo society. In the formal school system, liberal or humanities education embody ideals that will make this antisocial being better. It is in this connection of making the human person better that Albert Schweitzer states that “the essential nature of civilization does not lie in its material achievements but in the fact that individuals keep in mind the ideals of the perfecting of man”. Schweitzer’s assertion is an affirmation that the human person has the capacity for self-improvement. This is made possible by exposing humans to the ideas and values that make life worth living. Values such as civility, tolerance, accountability, discipline, law and order, enthronement of truth, honesty, justice, empathy and compassion for others cannot be traded for material achievements for it is only human beings with such qualities that can develop society. Thus, when a society begins to experience orgies of violence of unparallel proportion, gross violations of human rights, and oppression of the weak by the powerful, human trafficking, enslavement, and lack of respect for human life, it calls for sober reflection.

A society is made habitable by reason of certain values, which are inculcated by society from early childhood. Unfortunately, the hallowed values associated with humanity such as benevolence, compassion, kindness and fellow feelings are fast eroded as manifest in ethnic cleansing, genocide, xenophobia, human trafficking for assorted purpose, rape, proliferation of light weapons and corruption in its variegated forms. This conference with the theme, ’Re-humanising Humanity’ aims at interrogating these social ills and the concomitant social crises confronting humanity with the view of using the Humanities education as an antidote. The conference organized by Faculty of Arts and Humanities Scholars’ Association of Nigerian Universities (FAHSANU), Seeks a multidisciplinary intersection of conference papers to address the critical role of Arts and Humanities in Re-Humanising Humanity as a way of contributing human progress. The conference is timely at this period of global peace building when national and International security is under serious threat. It provides a pedagogical antidote to world enmeshed in violence.
