Graduate Student Research Conference: March 27-28, 2008
CALL FOR PAPERS: The objective of the conference is to bring together graduate students from different institutions and disciplines to discuss research relevant to the increasing interdependence and collaboration of governments, organizations, people and ideas - locally, nationally and internationally.
We welcome proposals from fields as diverse as public policy, international affairs, public health, education, political science and any other field of relevance. The conference, Collaboration and Interdependence: Networks in a Globalized World, will provide an opportunity for graduate students to present their research at all stages of development to gain valuable feedback from their peers, in addition to providing opportunities for students to network and share information. To realize this objective, we seek scholars from diverse fields, cultures, backgrounds, and geographic areas.
Conference hosted by NABU, the PhD student organization at the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at the University of Pittsburgh. The conference is committed to facilitating an interdisciplinary environment where participants are encouraged to share their views and ideas, and discuss past, present and future challenges for local, national and international communities.
