We are pleased to share this announcement from Sitar Terrass-Shah ’17:
Wesleyan’s Development Conference Committee is seeking alumni to speak at our first bi annual conference titled “Creating a Better World: Perspectives on Global and Local Development” on Saturday, February 21st 2015.
Our goal is to have speakers share insights and critiques of both the theory and practice of international and local development. Practitioners and academics who work in education, non profits, health care and poverty alleviation are welcome. Individual speakers will present; followed by a larger plenary question and answer section in which the speakers and audience can interact with each other.
This is a great way to talk through the complexities of practicing and theorizing development with students and Middletown residents who want to create a better world.
If you are interested in speaking or have questions, kindly contact me at email@example.com. Speakers will need to arrange their own transportation, but we are willing to work with you to offset some expenses.
