When Ann Kingsolver, former director of the University of Kentucky Appalachian Center, began speaking with grandparents raising grandchildren in Appalachian communities, two things became clear to her.
This is the 6th Annual GARC Symposium and Art Showcase. Graduates students with research and/or artistic interests in Appalachia are encouraged to submit proposals via the website. This is an opportunity for students to present their work on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the W. T. Young Library, Room B108-C on UK's Campus. This event is planned by members of GARC (Graduate Appalachian Research Community), with support from the UK Appalachian Center. The times listed above are tentative for the event, and this page will be updated continually. Please, see the GARC page on this website for more information, the Call for Participation, and to submit your proposal: https://appalachiancenter.as.uky.edu/graduate-appalachian-research-community. The deadline for porposals is February 15, 2015.
