May 4, 2015 – On May 7 and 8, Laurentian University will host an international symposium on complex and relational systemic thought on its main campus in Sudbury.
Organized jointly by Laurentian University and Université de Toulouse 1 Capitole (France), the event will bring together researchers from different countries in an effort to promote knowledge transfers and generate debates and advances around the ways to study human science phenomena, such as interactions between people, urban planning and economic relations.
In addition to the participation of many professors from Laurentian University’s French-language programs and their counterparts at the University of Hearst and several universities around the world, the symposium will provide an opportunity to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the journal Nouvelles perspectives en sciences sociales (New Perspectives in Social Sciences) which aims to accompany researchers venturing into new spaces in social sciences. The journal is open to all social science disciplines and publishes all of its content in French.
“Laurentian University is very proud to host this international symposium,” said Dominic Giroux, President and Vice-Chancellor of Laurentian University. “The event demonstrates our university’s role as a world leader in the field of social sciences and the recognized expertise that our students benefit from during their academic studies.”
