Global | Local Recap

The Global|Local Conference was a wonderful success! More than 100 people signed up to attend the conference over the two days, and the auditorium was packed for every session, often with only standing room remaining. Social media was so abuzz during the first day of the conference that #EHGloLo17 trended at #5 on Friday! You can revisit the conference play-by-play in our Storify recap!


Thank you!

Our stellar line-up of speakers brought to the conference exceptional presentations that seamlessly intersected with one another and brought forward extremely important and timely discussions of marginalized voices, ethics within and outside of the academy, critical engagement, and social activism. Our immense thanks to our guests for contributing their intellect and energy to making this conference a success!

And, finally, to all who attended and brought questions, insights, and enthusiasm to each of the events!
