Registration is open for the seventh annual International Symposium on Lasallian Research, which will take place September 21-23 on the Twin Cities Campus of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
This yearly symposium, which began in 2012, gathers creative minds to dialogue about the key characteristics or key areas that comprise the field of Lasallian research today; look beyond a study solely of the origins, tradition and heritage in Lasallian research; break open the possibilities for Lasallian research in the 21st century; and propose avenues or topics for future needed Lasallian research. The goal is also to develop a community of scholars committed to supporting, conducting, and publishing Lasallian research.
Saint Mary’s Institute for Lasallian Studies hosts the event, which Christian Brothers Conference co-sponsors.
This year’s keynote speakers include:
