Attend Crossing Boundaries, the Second-Annual DePaul Graduate Student Conference

This Friday, March 6 from 11:00am to 8:00 pm in the McGowan South building, join the DePaul College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences as it presents a conference showcasing work by graduate students across its many departments and programs.

The conference will feature a keynote from DePaul Professor Miles Harvey, the author of Painter in a Savage Land: The Strange Saga of the First European Artist in North America. His previous book, The Island of Lost Maps: A True Story of Cartographic Crime, a national and international bestseller, was selected by USA Today as one of the ten best books of 2000. He received wide-spread acclaim for his dramatic oral history How Long Will I Cry?: Voices of Youth Violence, which premiered at the Steppenwolf Theater and was the first book published by DePaul’s new publishing imprint Big Shoulders Books.

The schedule of the conference is presented below. All members of the DePaul Community are invited to attend.
