Re-Thinking Your Interdisciplinary World
3rd Annual
UNBC Graduate Conference

Friday, April 4, 2008

The University of Northern British Columbia
Prince George Campus
Open to Graduate & Undergraduate Students
at UNBC and Other Universities


Since its inception, the University of Northern British Columbia has
fostered a strong interdisciplinary focus in research and teaching. This
year, for the first time, all three of the major research areas (natural
sciences, social science/humanities, and health) will be represented at
our annual graduate student conference. To commemorate this
interdisciplinary cooperation, our conference theme is “Re-Thinking Your
Interdisciplinary World.” You will be encouraged to re-think and expand
your disciplinary boundaries.

Proposals can be disciplinary specific or interdisciplinary. In addition,
proposals can address the theory & practice of interdisciplinary research,
exemplary models for conducting interdisciplinary research, or assessments
of the positives and negatives of conducting interdisciplinary research.

There will be prizes available for the panels that best exemplify the
interdisciplinary focus, $750 for 1st place and $300 for 2nd place.

All submissions are due: February 27, 2008
