2010 Integral Conference - Panels Named

ITC Banner

Got this email the other day - the panels for the 2010 Integral Theory Conference have been named. I will be part of a panel on Friday along with Bert Parlee, Mark Forman, Pelle Billing, Diane Hamilton, and Gilles Herrada - Integral Masculinity: Are David Deida's and Warren Farrell's Visions of Masculinity "Integral?"

Should be an interesting discussion.
We are extremely pleased to announce our list of panel discussions for the 2010 Integral Theory Conference in Pleasant Hill, California! Coupled with the academic presentations, the panels are the heart of the conference - providing the opportunity for the integral academic community to engage in critical and mutually enlivening discourse around key questions and issues.

In order to better serve this purpose, we have increased the length of each panel this year to 2 hours, with the last 30 minutes devoted to Q-and-A with the audience. We have also increased our overall number of panels to 22 spread over the three days of the event.

Listed below are the confirmed moderators and participants as well as general topics. As you will note, some of our panels are still being constructed. Also, the topics may be subject to minor change and many panels will add additional participants in the next month or so.
