BYU hosts 9th Field Studies Inquiry Conference Feb. 28-March 2

Interracial marriage in South Africa and alternative fuel laws in Brazil will be among the topics discussed at the Brigham Young University 9th Annual Field Studies Inquiry Conference Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 28-March 2, in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Admission to the conference will be free, and the public is welcome to attend.

“Each year the Inquiry Conference offers students an academic forum to present the results of their cross-cultural research and the insights they have gained through field study experiences,” said Ashley Tolman, conference organizer.

The event will begin Wednesday at noon with the keynote address by Steven R. Thomsen, associate professor of communications, in a Global Awareness Lecture. Daily sessions will then run from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Students who participate in the conference will receive faculty mentoring and learn insights from other students, a valuable contribution to field study and research papers.

A full schedule of events will be available online at kennedy.byu.edu/events/inquiry, and the conference will be archived online at the same location.

For more information, contact Ashley Tolman at (801) 422-1541.
