Kennedy Center hosts Field Studies Inquiry Conference March 1-3

The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University will host the 8th annual Field Studies Inquiry Conference Wednesday through Friday, March 1-3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

The conference will address such topics as AIDS in South Africa, religion in India and attachment disorder in Romania. Lectures each day will focus on different regions of the world, beginning with the first day on research conducted in Europe and Asia, the second day on Latin America and the third day on Africa.

“The Inquiry Conference provides an academic forum in which students can present the cross-cultural research and insights they gained through their field study experiences,” said Ashley Tolman, conference organizer.

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

The conference will be archived online. For more information and a schedule of events, visit kennedy.byu.edu/events/inquiryconf.php, contact Ashley Tolman at (801) 422-1541 or send an e-mail to inquiryconference@yahoo.com.
