Texas Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium
The Graduate Liberal Studies Programs of Rice University and Southern Methodist University invite you to participate in the fourth annual Texas Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium on July 14, 2018. Register here!
The symposium provides an opportunity for students, alumni and faculty from Texas graduate liberal studies programs to present and share their experiences and studies and continue to explore timeless and timely human questions within the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Students, alumni and faculty are encouraged to submit papers to be considered for presentations during the symposium.
This one-day symposium will open with breakfast on Saturday morning followed by student, alumni and faculty presentations. A keynote speaker will deliver a lecture during lunch. Whether you are presenting a paper or attending to listen to presentations, we hope you will register and join us to share ideas, network, and socialize with other graduate liberal studies colleagues.
