Any students with an interest in cross-cultural communication should take a look at the 2013 Annual Conference of the Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research, titled “Exploring Intercultural Boundaries: Innovation, Inclusion, Inspiration.” Students seeking funding to attend the conference may apply to the CPGC’s Off-Campus Conferences & Workshops Fund. A brief description of the conference, excerpted from its official website, follows:
The Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research (SIETAR-USA) is an organization that brings together people from many different backgrounds to explore how culture plays a role in their work and daily life. The annual conference provides an opportunity for these individuals to learn from, and with, others in a way that increases participants’ understanding, skills, and knowledge of the field of intercultural relations.
Whether this is your first SIETAR-USA conference or you are returning for the thirteenth time (or anything in between), welcome! We invite you to come listen to and connect with leaders in the field, partake in thought-provoking sessions and discussions, and strengthen your networks and friendships within our growing interculturally-minded community. We know you will come away with deeper insights on topics of vital interest to the field and your career, acquire new ideas for transforming and balancing your life, and learn about new tools for exploring intercultural boundaries.
The conference is November 6-9 in Arlington, VA.
