7th Global Issues Conference

Worldwide, April 5th – April 8th, 2022

The Global Issues conference is an on-line conference focusing on original student research about issues of significance to our global community. Undergraduate and graduate students at GPE member institutions are invited to present their humanities, arts and social science based research that explores the interconnected nature of the global and local issues.

During the virtual conference, there will be thematic sessions at various times to allow presenters in different time zones to participate. Original, humanities, arts and social science research-based presentations on a wide array of topics are welcome (See the call for papers below). Presentations are followed by moderated discussions that encourage the sharing of localized perceptions about the issues being presented.

All students, faculty, and staff at GPE Member institutions are welcome to attend the presentations.
