XIV International Symposium on the History of the Spanish Masonry Latin American Freemasonry. From absolutism to democracy (1815-2015 Gijón (Spain), from 10 to 12 September 2015

Comparative and global study in Freemasonry and wider civil society is increasing each year but so are hemispheric studies.  

John Slifko's insight:

This is vital topic that is well supported by geographically-inegrated history or historical geography as scholalry disciplines. Scholars and Freemasons in North America have ample notice to prepare as the discussion is hemispheric and historical geography can help integrate that larger effort. .

Ken Morrison's comment, October 8, 2013 5:00 PM
I am so happy that you shared this. I shared Nancy Duarte's Hero's Journey one day in the classroom because the internet was down and I couldn't give my regular presentation slides. Ten months later, students still tell me that I "ruin in a good way' their movie watching because they think of this cycle.
