Political Science grad students to host academic conference

The Graduate Association of Political Science will host a daylong academic conference created by graduate students for graduate students.

The conference will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jan. 29 in the du Bois Center.

“Intellectual Intersections: A Multidisciplinary Graduate Student Conference” will include more than 100 submissions from graduate students in a variety of fields from NAU, the University of Arizona and Arizona State University. Eighteen panels and one poster session will take place during this time.

“It’s pretty significant that NAU graduate students have organized a major conference with 65 presentations, half of which come from students at UA and ASU,” said Fred Solop, chair of the Department of Politics and International Affairs. “This is the first year our graduate students have participated in an activity like this, and we hope to build on our successes in order to make this a regular event at NAU.”
