Call for Student Research for Human Development Conference

Author: Arts and Letters

Undergraduate and graduate students alike are being invited to present papers at “People, Power, and Pragmatism: The Future of Development in Our Changing World,” a conference on human development scheduled for Feb. 26–27, 2010, on the Notre Dame campus. The research presented at the conference will address a broad range of issues—from agriculture to education—all of which are vital to human development.

The goal of the conference is to bring an interdisciplinary cross-section of Notre Dame students together to share research on the current state of human development in their respective fields, analyze and assess the way human development issues are being addressed across such a wide spectrum of topics, and formulate a vision for the direction of human development.

Proposals and abstracts are due Friday, October 16.

The conference is sponsored by The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity and the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Social Concerns, in collaboration with SIT Study Abroad, a program of World Learning.
