2014 Annual Conference – Revolutions: Past, Present, and Future
October 9-11, 2014
Hosted by The University of Pennsylvania MLA Program and the Villanova University GLS Program
Philadelphia has long been home to revolutionary thought. Its most famous son, Benjamin Franklin—inventor, scientist, newspaper mogul, diplomat, political philosopher, educational reformer, signer of the Declaration of Independence, statesman—is the embodiment of the myriad revolutions that continue to shape human history, especially in modern times.
For the 2014 AGLSP conference, we will explore the theme of Revolutions. Appropriately, the conference will take place here in Philadelphia, birthplace of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, at the University of Pennsylvania, the university that Franklin founded (in the spirit of educational reform) and the home of the ENIAC—the first computer that revolutionized the face of modern technology. Guest speakers and workshop panel information will be posted soon.
Hotel Accommodations will be provided by the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel. The room rate is $169. Please call the hotel directly to book your rooms at 1-888-627-7071. The room block is under The Association of Graduate Liberal Studies. All reservations must be booked by Tuesday, September 9, 2014.
