Annual Field Studies Inquiry Conference at BYU March 5-7

The 10th annual International Field Studies Inquiry Conference will be held Wednesday through Friday, March 5-7, from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

This conference offers students an academic forum to present their findings on cross-cultural research and insights gained during their field study experiences. A few of the topics will include Tibetans in India, community development in South Africa and migrant workers from rural Mexico.

All students who participate in a BYU-sponsored field study receive faculty mentoring, an invaluable contribution to students’ academic development and completion of their research paper, which is the end product of every field study experience.

The conference is free and open to the public.

A schedule of events will be posted online at kennedy.byu.edu/events/inquiry, and the conference will be archived online at the same location for later viewing.

For more information, see the online schedule or contact byuinquiryconference@gmail.com.
