An Interdisciplinary Conference on the Thought of Walter J. Ong, S.J.
Technology, Rhetoric, and Cultural Change: Walter J. Ong, S. J. in the Age of Google, Facebook, and Twitter
Walter Ong was among the foremost theorists of rhetoric and culture in the 20th century. A student of Marshall McLuhan and Perry Miller, his dissertation on the importance of Peter Ramus, a 16th century logician and developer of a deeply influential pedagogy, brought him an international audience. Over the course of his long career, he published many books and hundreds of essays, most arguing that the technology of human communication is reflected, however indirectly, in human consciousness. This interdisciplinary conference will celebrate Ong's legacy and the tradition of Jesuit scholarship. As enthusiasts of new media daily claim its transformative status - the Tunisians Twittered their way to revolution, Coursera will end classroom teaching, etc. - the conference will take us a step closer to understanding their significance and the role of Walter Ong in our understanding of the emerging world they promise.
The conference will take place on the campus of Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington on Friday and Saturday, February 7-8, 2014.
