bel-esprit [ bel-es-pree ] : a person with a fine and gifted mind
interaction: a particular way in which matter affect one another.
The Bel-Esprit Interaction was created for great minds to interact, in order to create new knowledge as well as sharing knowledge that is known in a particular field but not in all fields. Unlike, at conferences, The Bel-Esprit Interaction is to provide engaging formal learning for all. Although, this will be a virtual event, there are still ways for presenters to interact with the audience. Instead of feeling like you are just watching a show, you will feel like you are a part of the show.
In academia, we assume that the readers of our publications are just other academics. The Bel-Esprit Interaction wants to break down this assumption. The Bel-Esprit Interaction aims to open the doors of knowledge for all people. Knowledge is beneficial for everyone and everyone has knowledge to give. The Bel-Esprit Interaction has been created so that “knowledge” and “everyone” can interact.
The first theme of The Bel-Esprit Interaction is “Balancing Tradition and Progression.” Change is happening now all around us. Movement from the traditional perspective to the progressive perspective is occurring in all topics (including but not limited to politics, music, and sexuality). The Bel-Esprit Interaction aims to bridge the gap between the past and future while learning to dwell in the present. By having speakers of different disciplines and perspectives, we seek collectively how to balance tradition and progression. We need to be balanced before creating. We need to secure our roots before we aim for the sky, hence the theme of the first annual The Bel-Esprit Interaction.
