What is the Symposium about?


This symposium provides an intellectual forum for TTU undergraduate students to discuss issues of identity, conflict, and resistance in the United States and around the world. It serves as a venue for sharing theoretical and practical approaches to these issues from multiple perspectives. In the 21st century, the global population faces increased challenges related to population and conflict that demand rigorous study and the collaboration of individuals in multiple fields. This symposium will spark interdisciplinary conversations about how these issues can be addressed – and how they are being addressed – in the recent past, in the present, and in the future. The goals of the symposium align with the goals of Texas Tech University’s current quality enhancement plan (QEP), which focuses on the importance of Communicating in a Global Society. By participating in this symposium, undergraduates will:


1.     Develop communication skills in a variety of media that are appropriate to their disciplines and focus on developing them within a global context.

2.     Successfully apply these communication skills in a range of situations with audiences, both local and global.


We invite undergraduate students to register projects in a variety of formats that address the global challenge themes of Population and Conflict, with a special focus on Identity and Resistance. Your contribution may be in one of the following formats:

·      Paper presentations

·      Original music

·      Poster presentations

·      Webpages

·      Digital stories

·      Photographic documentation of sites of conflict

·      Digital portfolios

·      Three dimensional objects-to-think-with

·      Podcasts

·      Others…
