Call for Papers: 2018 Symposium of the UPR-UM Outreach Collaboration

Announcing the theme for the 2018 UPR-UM Symposium: “Political Tensions and Identity in a Globalized World”

Location: University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, San Juan, PR

Date: May 3-4, 2018

We are calling on graduate students from the University of Michigan, working from any discipline, methodologies, or perspective, in any part of the world or historical contexts, to present on the theme of political tensions and identity in a globalized world. The objective of this symposium is to incorporate the concepts of political tension, questions of identity, and globalization into academic curriculum and teaching models at the university and K-12 school level. We seek graduate students who will present their research and propose ways to incorporate that research into K-12 school classrooms.

Selected proposals will be considered for full or partial travel funding to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
