2nd Interdisciplinary Conference

Next March 31st, marked as the last day of Women's History month, conference participants will be engaged in making history. St. Thomas University wishes to: celebrate the lives and narratives of women who support, promote, or create justice; explore critical empirical inquiry that focuses or illuminates justice as a system of right relationships; provide a forum for connection and discussion; promote positive policy development; and, where possible, “move forward” toward action that will alleviate suffering and facilitate healing.
