9/1: Early Research Initiative Conference

Friday, September 1, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:40 pm

This Friday, September 1st 9am – 2:40pm, recipients of several awards funded by the Provost’s Office ― the Knickerbocker Award for Archival Research in American Studies, the Award for Archival Research in African American and African Diaspora Studies, and the Provost’s Pre-Dissertation Summer Research Awards ― will present their material in its raw state. Panels will be moderated by world-renowned faculty from multiple departments. In years past, students described what it was like to enter an archive for the first time, led the audience on a photo-tour of their travels abroad, and asked for feedback on inquiries that were newly developed as a result of their funded research. In each presentation, audience members who are new graduate students have the opportunity to get a closer look at the expectations of those who receive these types of awards, and prepare their own applications moving forward.

Students will represent the following departments: Theatre, Urban Education, Art History, Anthropology, Psychology, Earth and Environmental Sciences, English, Music, Social Welfare, and others.

The schedule for the day is here. For detailed panel descriptions, see the full program.
