Registration is now open for the ninth annual International Symposium on Lasallian Research, and proposals are being accepted. The symposium will be held October 1-3, 2021, on the Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Twin Cities Campus in Minneapolis.
Inspired by the Declaration on the Lasallian Educational Mission: Challenges, Convictions and Hopes, the theme of the symposium is “The Lasallian Education Mission: Challenges, Convictions, and Hopes.” Proposals can address that theme or, more specifically, these categories: leadership and character; inclusion and human dignity; science, health and sustainability; and Lasallian education and pedagogy. Proposals are due no later than June 15, 2021.
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.
