The 40th CLASS Annual Research Conference themed “I Tano, I Tasi, yan I Taotao Siha: Boundaries, Balance, and Behaviors” will take place on Friday, March 8, from 8:30am to 4pm in the Humanities & Social Sciences Building on the campus of the University of Guam.
The Annual Research Conference is organized by UOG’s College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences as a forum for intellectual engagement and discussions on issues related and unique to Oceania, a global resource endowed with significant ecological and cultural diversity.
It is a multidisciplinary research conference platform for local, regional, and global scholars, scientists, visual and theatrical artists, and students to share their research and experiences. The conference will include presentations of academic papers, illustrated talks, interactive panels and demonstrations, performances, and informative poster sessions.
The theme is meant to generate insightful conversations and novel ideas that evaluate, redefine, and promote the collaborative projects in diverse fields in the Pacific region. Practitioners and scholars are encouraged to interrogate how those issues manifest in the Pacific as well as examine the changing role of Oceania as it grapples with the social forces of globalization.
