We invite Temple faculty, students and staff, as groups or individuals, to submit proposals for the 10th annual Global Temple Conference, a day-long event held on November 18, 2015 at the Howard Gittis Student Center.
The Global Temple Conference was first organized in 2006 to showcase the university's international involvement across the world, promoting globalization as one of Temple's core values. The conference features student, staff and faculty research, plus an array of programs and creative ventures.
We look forward to continuing the success of our past conferences this year—in 2014, over 500 attendees and 100 presenters joined us for Global Temple. From engaging panels to the vibrant poster session to a wonderful keynote address by Dr. Christiaan Morssink, the Temple University community demonstrated a range of artistic talents and scholarly pursuits. Other past conferences have included a wide variety of research with an international focus across Temple's schools and colleges, including art exhibitions, dance and music performances.
We welcome proposals for various formats--papers, panel discussions, posters, films, & exhibits-organized broadly around four pillars of university excellence: scholarship, teaching, creativity, and service. Prizes for the best student work will be awarded. More information, including links to past conference papers, can be found by visiting our conference website.
Submit your proposal using our online form. Proposals must be submitted by Friday, October 9, 2015. All submissions will be reviewed by a jury of Temple faculty; presenters will be notified of the jury’s decisions.
The Global Temple Conference is organized by the Faculty Senate International Programs Committee and the Office of International Affairs, and supported by Colleges and Programs across the University.
