The public will have an opportunity to hear about research and experiences unique to Oceania at the 42nd Annual Research Conference of the University of Guam’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, being held virtually from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, March 5.
The CLASS Annual Research Conference is a multidisciplinary platform for local, regional, and global scholars, scientists, visual and performing artists, and students to present their discoveries and experiences specific to the Oceanic region.
This year’s conference theme of “Modern Issues, Traditional Solutions” acknowledges that while the issues of this region are ever-changing, the accumulation of wisdom across generations can guide the community toward reliable ways of addressing those challenges. The theme is meant to generate insightful conversations, promote the strength and well-being of the Pacific nations, and highlight the vast tapestry of knowledge of the cultures of the Pacific.
The conference will feature 20 presentations and a keynote address given by Lt. Gov. Joshua Tenorio. The conference will also include a virtual art show hosted by the Isla Center for the Arts featuring works of the “Modern Issues, Traditional Solutions” theme by students, faculty, and community artists.
The conference is free of charge and open to the public.
