Resilience is the ability of human mind and/or body to respond to adverse circumstances, tragedy, trauma, or any other intimidation to emotional and/or physical integrity and its impacts. It is an individual’s retort to any encroachment on one’s self, and establish self- legitimacy in a hostile environment. But is this power of resilience displayed with homogeneity or heterogeneity among and/or across culturally diverse and rich groups? As a context and culture specific response, resilience is demonstrated in negotiation with factors, such as spatial, socio-cultural and political.
The 2022 Midwest ACIS Regional Conference will be held at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse on October 6-8. This year’s conference will forego a traditional theme; instead participants will be encouraged to identify recurring themes and new directions that will undoubtedly emerge from the works presented at the conference. Thus, innovative papers that transgress traditional themes, narratives, and siloed disciplines are encouraged.
The 2022 McBride Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Cian McMahon of the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
