Seventh Annual Global Citizenship Conference:

The Faces of Genocide

This 2017-2018 academic year, the main focus of the Global Citizenship Committee is to organize the Seventh Annual Global Citizenship Conference. Dr. Tim Kelly, the GC Committee's Acting Chair, is leading this effort. Dr. Kelly writes about this upcoming conference in an entry for the GC blog. This conference will gather speakers, music, film/documentaries, art, information tables, exhibits and opportunities for talking and reflecting to engage attendees in our goal to address three key aspects of genocide:

  • Definition: How can we historicize and explain why genocides happen?
  • Memory and remembrance: We explore the impact and legacy of genocide;
  • Taking action: What can the Global Citizen do to help prevent genocide and to foster social justice.
