International Research Symposium at Ohio State

Feb 27, 2015 (All day)

Symposium on International Scholarship - “The Global Landscape: Challenges and Resilience”

The International Affairs Faculty Council invites members of the Ohio State scholarly community, who conduct research in international settings, to submit a proposal to participate in the First Annual Symposium on International Scholarship, “The Global Landscape: Challenges and Resilience.”

This symposium is designed to bring together the Ohio State community and other key partners who engage, or share interest, in international research. While the symposium invites faculty and students to submit their research, all members of the campus community are welcome to attend.

The symposium will feature several interactive panels on multi-disciplinary international themes. Panelists will be selected from the submitted proposals.

The structure of the panels will focus on the following broadly conceived themes:

  • One Health: Synergizing Research, Training and Outreach in the Globalized World

  • Water: Global Vulnerability and Sustainability of Water Quality and Security under Changing Environments

  • Disability: Law, Advocacy, and Cultural Challenges around the World

  • Social Justice: Social Movements, Art, and Culture as Agents of Change

In addition, we invite faculty and graduate students to share their international projects in the form of a poster, which will be displayed at the symposium.

All proposals should include a 200 word abstract and a 75 word biography of each proposed participant. Please submit your proposal by Monday, October 27, 2014, at 5 p.m. for consideration in the panel discussion or poster display. You can submit your proposal in the form below.
