The Thirteenth Annual Global Temple Conference

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

Wednesday, February 20th, 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. Prizes for the best student work will be awarded.


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.
