The Seventh Annual Field Studies Inquiry Conference Wednesday through Friday, March 2-4, at Brigham Young University will deal with such topics as health care in Guatemala, Tongan women's involvement in society and the education of girls in Ghana.
"The conference aims to provide an academic forum in which students can present the cross-cultural research and insights they gained through their Field Study experiences," says Ashley Tolman, conference organizer.
The sessions are held at the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies in 238 Herald R. Clark Building from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. All sessions are free and the public is invited to attend.
Various regions of the world are the focus for each of the days. Wednesday sessions cover research regarding Southern Africa and Asia. Thursday sessions address issues facing Europe, the Middle East and Latin America. Friday sessions feature West Africa and the South Pacific.
Students who participated in field studies received faculty mentoring to assist them in the development and completion of their research paper. All papers that were submitted to the Inquiry Conference were reviewed and presenters for the conference were selected.
The conference will be archived online. For a full schedule of events or to view archives, please visit http://kennedy.byu.edu/events/inquiryconf.html. For information, contact Ashley Tolman at (801) 422-1488, email@example.com.
