This symposium provides an intellectual forum to discuss issues of identity, conflict, and resistance in the United States and around the world. It serves as a venue for students and professors to share theoretical and practical approaches from multiple perspectives. It will spark interdisciplinary conversations about how the global challenges of population and conflict can be addressed in a variety of settings.
The goals of the symposium align with the goals of Texas Tech University's current quality enhancement plan (QEP), Communicating in a Global Society. By participating in this symposium, students will achieve two specific goals:
1. Students will develop communication skills in a variety of media that are appropriate to their disciplines and focus on developing them within a global context.
2. Students will successfully apply these communication skills in a range of situations with audiences, both local and global.
Thanks to the generous support of TTU's Center for Global Communication, there is no registration fee.
