(Fort McMurray, AB – February 26, 2016) – Keyano College invites the community to Question Everything at the 4th Annual Keyano College Arts & Humanities Conference (KCAHC) on Saturday, March 5th.

This year’s keynote speaker is Dr. Bart Beaty of the University of Calgary’s English Department.

“The theme for the conference is Question Everything and this idea has influenced all the programming for the day,” explains Dr. Ryan Cox, Keyano College Instructor and KCAHC Steering Committee Chair. “Our opening session is a large discussion of what truth is, and will feature sessions discussing things like Fan Fiction, Selfies and Memes, Truth in the Law, Banned and Censored Books, False Histories and Conspiracies, Myths of the Mind, The Value of Skepticism, Gaming and Culture, and Fort McMurray as Place of Study.”

The afternoon will feature this year’s installment of Keyano Reads, where the College’s Community Book of the Year is chosen. The final session of the day will feature keynote Dr. Beaty, the author of Twelve Cent Archie, discussing comics.

This public event takes place from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., registration is free and lunch will be provided.

“The conference allows us to take our Arts and Humanities programming beyond the classroom, to engage our students and the Wood Buffalo community in the critical conversations of our disciplines so they can understand the way these conversations touch their everyday lives,” explains Dr. Cox. “We here at Keyano have a wealth of intelligent and engaged students who do fantastic work, and through this conference we get to share that with the community.”
