The UMass Boston Graduate Programs in Conflict Resolution invites students to get involved in “Conflict Studies: The New Generation of Ideas,” their conference scheduled for October 19-20, 2012.

Since 1996 the UMass Boston Graduate Programs in Conflict Resolution have hosted a biennial conference specifically for graduate students studying conflict in a wide range of disciplines. “Conflict Studies: The New Generation of Ideas” is a unique event that provides a forum for graduate students to present their work, receive feedback from, and network with scholars, practitioners, and peers.  Previous conferences have each attracted over 150 participants from universities across the US and around the world. See the conference page for programs and papers from prior conferences, and the flyer for more information.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved:              

  • Submit papers and/or attend the conference. This is a great opportunity for students to get presentation experience and network with others with similar interests.  And it’s a great time of year to visit Boston!  
  • Organize a Panel. Is there a topic that you are currently working on? You can organize a group of 3-5 students to present papers that explore aspects of that topic.    
  • Host an event during the conference. Has your program developed an interesting approach that you’d like to showcase? Is there a skill-building exercise or case study you’d like to share?  Or maybe a group of students have a great improv troupe or blues band.

or Roni Lipton, Graduate Program Director at roni.lipton@umb.edu or 617-287-7415
A Call for Papers will be sent out in the middle of March, with a response deadline at the end of April.
