Global Academy of Liberal Arts 2019 Conference: “Networks Across Time and Space”

Claremont Graduate University will host the 6th Annual Global Academy of Liberal Arts (GALA) conference on September 12-14, 2019. Dedicated to the theme of networks, the 6th annual conference will assess these networks and examine their value as a cornerstone in the development of liberal arts education. At its core, GALA represents the partnering of universities, faculty, and students together in a number of different networks of communication, research, idea exploration, and teaching.

We encourage panels, workshops, papers, and roundtable discussions that probe the nature and value of these networks, offer prospective calls for future networks, and even explore the success and failure of networks past and present. Proposals that trouble or expand the basic definition of a network as well as those that place the meaning of networks in their presentations are encouraged.
