Sven Arvidson, Director of Liberal Studies, published “Restructuring Attentionality and Intentionality” in Human Studies (May 2013), an academic journal for philosophy and the social sciences. In his article, Arvidson uses interdisciplinary processes to find common ground and integration between phenomenology and experimental psychology as they relate to attention.

Arvidson received his Ph.D. from Georgetown University. He has been on the faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences since 1999. He directs the Liberal Studies program, founded the Consortium of Interdisciplinary Scholars, and is Senior Faculty Fellow in the Center for Faculty Development. His recent scholarship includes “Eportfolios in a Liberal Studies Program: An Experiment in Sustainability” in Teaching Sustainability and Teaching Sustainably (Stylus Publications, 2012) and “Artistic Reverence” in The Art of Social Critique: Painting Mirrors of Social Life (Lexington Books, 2012).

The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 33 undergraduate and 7 advanced degrees.
