Students for the in Provo, Utah invites papers and projects on topics related to strengthening the family to be submitted in conjunction with the third annual Strengthening the Family Conference.
The purpose of the Call for Papers is to provide students with an opportunity to engage issues that affect the family in society and to build an academic case for strengthening families as the fundamental unit of society. This will provide a medium for students to cultivate rigorous thinking and practice articulating their research findings through papers and projects, and to hear the expertise and thinking of other students and professionals on the topics.
Some topics at the conference will include: the relational effects of pornography addiction, legal implications of same-sex marriage and no-fault divorce laws, effects of media on perceptions of relationships, changing trends in dating and marriage, sexual integrity, gender complementarity in parenting, the economic cost of family decline on society, and religious freedom.
We encourage the submission of scholarly, philosophical and legal analysis papers on issues affecting relationships, marriage and family. This may include original research, a review of research on relevant topics, a legal analysis of current issues, synthesis of philosophies or historical perspectives.
All paper and project submissions will have the opportunity of winning cash awards for their submissions, and may also be chosen for presentation at the conference and/or published online.
