Join Us for The SIETAR USA 21st National Conference

 Mind, Culture, Society

October 8-11, 2021

The prognosis for gathering in person in mid-Fall is good. Vaccination supercenters are springing up across the land. Hospitalization numbers are going down. Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to join us in Omaha, Nebraska to explore connections between Mind, Culture, and Society. How does the intersection of these three vital aspects change how we view and react to the world around us?  The schisms in today’s world such as rural/urban; immigrant/citizen; and the gaps caused by differences in religion, race, gender identity, and politics challenge us daily. How does a deeper understanding of these three factors enhance our capacity to bridge such separations?  This conference will shine a light on the impact of emerging neuroscience applications, current perspectives on culture, and social parameters within the Intercultural and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion fields. Come present at this year’s conference and lead the discourse addressing these important questions.

Plan to join us in Omaha in October to exchange strategies, best practices, and fellowship.

The Call for Proposals is NOW OPEN!
