June 16 - 18, 2017
Hosted by the University of Washington Tacoma Master in Interdisciplinary Arts Program


Welcome program directors, current students and alumni of west coast GLS programs! The eleventh annual west coast joint Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium continues the tradition started by Stanford University and Dominican University of California in 2007 of developing a sense of academic community among our respective GLS programs through a weekend of intellectual and social interaction. This interdisciplinary symposium provides a congenial and supportive opportunity for students and alumni to present papers to an audience of their peers, to participate in lively discussions, and to meet fellow GLS students from other schools.  We also encourage non-presenting students and alumni to attend the symposium.

Since 2008, the participating programs have expanded to include several west coast GLS programs, along with Maastricht University in the Netherlands:

Dominican University of California
Maastricht University 
Marylhurst University
Mount St. Mary's University
Reed College
San Diego State University
Simon Fraser University
St. John's College Santa Fe
Stanford University
University of Washington Tacoma

All are welcome to register to attend.  Presenters must be from affiliated institutions.
