TCU has partnered with the State University of New York, Binghamton to present the 7th annual Race, Ethnicity and Place Conference. The event will be held at The Sheraton Hotel in downtown Fort Worth, Oct. 22-24.
The conference brings together 350 people from 4 continents, 10 nations, 36 states and 80 colleges and universities.
Andrew Schoolmaster, dean of the AddRan College of Liberal Arts and co-director of the event, said the interdisciplinary conference presents an opportunity for dialogue around the complex questions that face America today over the issues of race, ethnicity and place.
“No single discipline holds all the answers or perspectives to understanding very complex issues. Therefore, interdisciplinary efforts to understand race, ethnicity and place will be more productive, better informed and bring more and different thoughts to the table,” he said.
Forty-six faculty, staff and students from TCU have registered to participate in the conference as panelists or presenters.
Program and registration information is available on the conference website.
