David M. Kennedy Center hosts 13th annual Inquiry Conference March 15-18

The 13th annual Inquiry Conference featuring students’ cross-cultural research will be Tuesday through Friday, March 15-18, at the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies in  238 Herald R. Clark Building.
 
This academic conference is a forum for students to present their findings on topics ranging from healthcare to education and from food to leisure activity. Most students have spent seven to 12 months preparing for and conducting research in countries across five continents. Following individual presentations, presenters will convene in panels to connect their research with one another and engage the audience through Q&A.
 
Keynote presentations feature  Sandra Rogers, international vice president at BYU, speaking on "Learning About Others and About Self" at 11 a.m.  Wednesday, March 16, and Joe Ostraff, professor of art at BYU, presenting "Manulua: Creative Activities between Two Communities" at noon  Thursday, March 17.
 
A special panel discussion, "Going Abroad: The Basics and Benefits of Studying Internationally at BYU," will be presented by International Study Programs coordinators, at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 16.
 
Throughout the four-day conference an International Art Show will showcase student art pieces with a cross-cultural theme. A reception will be held at noon Friday, March 18 to recognize the Juror's Choice Award and the People's Choice Award with cash prizes and to hear from the artist’s about their work.
 
Each year students across many disciplines take advantage of a field study to enhance their academic studies. Interested students should contact International Study Programs, 101 HRCB, (801) 422-3686, isp@byu.edu, or visit online at kennedy.byu.edu/isp.
