Our Social Science & Social Change Conference is right around the corner – two weeks from tomorrow on Friday, March 6th, from 9AM – 4PM at the DuBois Center. We hope everyone comes out to participate in the panel discussions, eat some lunch with us, listen to the Keynote Speaker, and watch a short-form documentary on migrant workers. Stay for the whole day, or just drop in on the parts that interest you most!
If you’ve never been to an academic conference before, this is a great way to get your feet wet. All of the presenters are from within the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences – even our keynote speaker, Dr. Javier Trevino, is an alumnus of the Applied Sociology MA program. We are having 4 sessions with two panels each throughout the day, on topics as varied as Student Success to Art & Culture to Gender and Sexuality. Presenters will talk about their research, and then there will be a short Q&A portion for each panel so you can ask questions, too. This is not about sitting and listening to lectures, this should be a day where you can take a deeper dive into concepts learned in your classes and see how they’re applied in the real world – more specifically, see how the Social Sciences can impact Social Change.
If you’d like to attend, please register by February 27th using our online form. You’ll find more details about the schedule and titles of presentations on our website, too. If you have any questions about the conference, please feel free to contact the department office – firstname.lastname@example.org.
