Experience the world in albany park

"Experience the World in Albany Park: Globalization in Our Backyard" is a sequence of more than 40 sessions and events culminating in a six-day conference on April 11-16. Highlighting the thriving partnerships and networks that tie Albany Park to the world, "Globalization in Our Backyard" aims to venture beyond the conventional academic conference. It will provide opportunities to meet with community leaders to discuss issues that are global in scope and local in significance.

Conference organizer Susan Stall, professor, sociology and women's studies, said, "'Experience the World in Albany Park' will deepen our understanding of how people from around the world share different experiences, stories and creative solutions to similar problems in one geographic space."
