8th Annual Conference of the Social Science
The Florida Society of the Social Sciences (F3S) is hosting the eighth annual Conference of the Social Sciences on Saturday, February 16, 2013. The conference provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students in a variety of academic fields to present innovative research, brainstorm ideas and collaborate with their peers. It also serves as a setting for both the academic and Gainesville community to socialize and network in a cooperative and educational environment. Many of the students involved in this conference will be tomorrow’s community, economic, and educational leaders, and the support of the local community is vital to their academic achievement.
Organized and planned by members of the Florida Society of the Social Sciences, a graduate student-run organization at the University of Florida, the conference has grown and expanded across colleges, disciplines and research topics over the past seven years. Our annual conference attracts nearly 200 participants from more than 13 different departments and four colleges across campus. With each successive year, the conference becomes more diverse in reflecting broader ranges of research issues.
