The event is a collaboration with KU's Area Studies Centers and KU International Affairs, and in partnership with the Foreign Language Association of Missouri and the Kansas World Language Association, Proposals to present are welcome from any post-secondary institution.  Past presenters have included faculty from Benedictine College, Johnson County Community College, Fort Hays State University, Kansas State University, Missouri State University, Pittsburg State University, the University of Kansas, and Wichita State University.
