Multiple Self: The Relational Body and Imagination
Karin Craven (Luther Seminary)

Colloquium. [Notes] Personhood understood as the multiple self roots the conversation about imagination fully in the sensate, relational body. The multiple self understood from different vantage points -- through learning and postcolonial theories, psychoanalytic and trauma theories, feminist and womanist theologies, and interpersonal neurobiology -- grounds the understanding of the play of imagination, inter-psychically and inter-relationally, and therefore creates a learning and living environment capable of exploring and negotiating differences of race, gender and class.

An Imaginative Journeying into Self and Others: A Worldview Approach
John Valk (University of New Brunswick)
Aybiçe Tosun (Ankara University)

Colloquium. [Paper] Exploring one’s own beliefs, values and behaviours (one’s own worldview) necessitates a journey into one’s “inner territory” – into one’s heart, soul and mind. It propels one’s imagination for it is an attempt to Know Oneself. But it cannot be done in isolation. It necessitates Knowing Others – a journey into the “inner territory” of others, imperative in our world of today. This presentation presents a worldview course model for imaginatively and experientially exploring Self and Others. It will also demonstrate through research the effectiveness of such an approach.
