Divine Word to host academic symposium

The Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences of Divine Word University will be hosting its second academic symposium.

This will give students and staff the opportunity to share their research and academic projects with the university community and the public on Friday 14th October 2016 at its Madang campus.

The purpose of the FASS symposium is to encourage research and provide opportunity for selected best final year student research outcomes to be presented to the general public.

Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences (FASS) will have panel discussions in between the three sessions according to its three departments – Communication Arts, Social and Religious Studies and PNG studies.

Last year, the FASS symposium featured a special tribute made to the late renowned anthropologist Nancy Sullivan in commemoration of her numerous contributions to research in PNG especially in Madang through the books that she produced with staff of DWU.
