About The Event

Introducing the USC-UNESCO Journal for Global Humanities, Science & Ethical Inquiry featuring presentations by the inaugural student authors with a Q&A to follow. | Light lunch provided

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) works to create the conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures and peoples, based upon respect for commonly shared values. To this end, the mission of this new USC-UNESCO Chair journal is to support multidisciplinary undergraduate research and dialogue. Selected research interns work together with the Levan Institute over the course of the year to create independent projects that apply humanities and ethics to legal, political, scientific, and global issues.

Opening Remarks: Dr. Lyn Boyd-Judson, Director of the Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics and UNESCO Chair for Global Humanities and Ethics Education.

Co-Chairs: Remaya Campbell, Editor-in-Chief, Jonathan Horwitz, Deputy Editor
