The Thirteenth Annual Global Temple Conference

Perceptions & Perspectives: The U.S. and its Place in the World

Wednesday, April 3, 2019
*** Due to the inclement weather on February 20th, the university was closed and the conference canceled. The conference was rescheduled for April 3, 2019.***

The Global Temple Conference is a day-long symposium designed to explore and celebrate Temple's wide array of international work. We welcome student, staff and faculty submissions of creative ventures from around the world.

We encourage proposals of various formats - papers, panel discussions, posters, films, multimedia, performances, installations, and exhibits. Content should be broadly organized around the four pillars of university excellence: scholarship, teaching, creativity, and service.


The conference will be held at Howard Gittis Student Center with a plenary address and presentations and sessions throughout the day. A global information fair will showcase the many opportunities and resources available to those interested in learning about the international and cultural resources at Temple. The conference is free and open to the Temple community and the public.

The conference will culminate with the International Affairs Lecture Series:

U.S. World Policy: America First vs. Global Diplomacy

Featuring former Rome Mayor and transplant surgeon Ignazio R. Marino and Philadelphia Inquirer Foreign Affairs Columnist Trudy Rubin
