Which conference session would you go to, and why?

I was reading an article attempting to debunk common [mis]perceptions about study abroad, but I got sidetracked by the very first paragraph. It made me want to ask: which is more interesting, conference sessions that "orient participants into the accepted language and landscape of a shared profession" or that "thoroughly rip apart the rhetoric and deconstruct a field’s founding myth"? If you had to choose, which one would you attend, and why?
