Graduate Student Participation Sought For Conflict Studies Conference
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:
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!
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.
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.
