June 30, 2015 topics to look into:
~ Liberal Arts education -- is it still valued in our culture (if our 'culture' is the college or university community)?
~ What are people not encouraged to go into the liberal arts?
~ Can you find statistics on how many liberal arts majors there are in the US? In the world? Are these viable careers?
~ Why are 'geeks' and 'smart' people called 'nerds'? How is the word being reappropriated in a positive way? For while it was uncool to be a nerd, now everyone proudly calls themselves nerds.
~ Can there be a standard bar of success in a culture? Does/Would a standard hinder creativity?
~ US society allows more creativity than other cultures. What is the difference? Are there differences in college cultures?
~ How do cultures stifle creativity? How does this feed into stereotypes? Is the US different than other societies in this regard?
