About the Meeting of the Minds

The Meeting of the Minds Conference is an interdisciplinary graduate research conference organized by the Graduate Students' Association of the University of Lethbridge. Held annually, this conference brings researchers from multiple disciplines together in one space, to explore interdisciplinary opportunities, present their work, and network with other researchers. The conference provides a platform to showcase all types of traditional and non-traditional research, and facilitates student growth and evolution as academics, scholars, and practitioners. The conference is now in its 12th year and is spread over two days, with the 3 Minute Thesis Finals being held as part of the opening ceremony.

Creating new Knowledge

The Graduate Students' Association (GSA) is pleased to invite students, faculty, staff and community members to attend the 13th Annual Meeting of the Minds Interdisciplinary Conference on the 23rd of March, 2019 in the Markin Hall Atrium. Free parking is available at the University on the day of the event.

Please join us for all or some sessions, the keynote address, and for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The graduate students and the Graduate Students' Association would be grateful for your support. We also hope that you will join us for the GSA's 3MT Wine and Cheese Reception on the 22nd of March from 7pm onwards (immediately after 3MT Finals). The schedule for the day of Meeting of the Minds will be released later in February.

Our conference theme this year is "Creating New Knowledge". The theme was chosen to honor the ever increasing need to bridge the gap between disciplines and to highlight that creativity plays a role throughout the university. It is an important component within the sciences, arts, and fine arts disciplines.
