As the semester comes to a close Digital Publishing Services has been busy publishing scholarship from a variety of Providence College conferences, events, and classes. Here is a selection of the work being added to the repository:
Annual Undergraduate Conference on Health and Society
In its fifth year, this conference attracts submissions from around the country. Conference presenters are selected through a peer-review process. This year’s topics included the Affordable Care Act and insurance marketplaces, challenges in contemporary global health practice, and gendered dimensions of health.
Second Annual Cleary Lecture
The annual lecture honors the memory of Rev. Edward L. Cleary, O.P., a professor of Political Science at Providence College for eighteen years and the director of the Latin American Studies program for twelve years. This year’s lecture, Prospects for Peace in Colombia, was presented by Virgina Bouvier of the U.S. Institute of Peace. A video of the lecture is available through Digital Commons.
