The Nation, the State, and the Global Redefinition of Self-determination

Provost's Global Forum 2016 (October 13-15)

This year's Provost's Global Forum will feature an artistic exhibition, multidisciplinary academic conference, and undergraduate course on the emerging redefinition of self-determination in the 21st century and what that redefinition means for humanity's common good. The goal of the Provost's Global Forum is to inspire discussions of global affairs and build relationships between the university and the state of Iowa.

Organized by Adrien Wing and Nathan Miller, the three-day academic conference comprised of lectures, presentations, and panel discussions aims to help raise awareness about concepts concerning contemporary self-determination and statehood.

All events are free and open to the public. For a full schedule of conference events and speakers, visit the Provost's Global Forum event page.
