On Thursday, May 18th,, from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m., the department’s Arnhold Undergraduate Research Fellows will present a collection of both completed and ongoing research projects.
This year, the Showcase will feature two corresponding events: From 12:30 to 1:45 in South Hall 2635, students in their final year of the Arnhold Program will have an opportunity to present a portion of their completed capstone projects during a “research slam,” followed by a short Q & A. Then, from 2:00 to 4:00 in the Collaborative Research Commons, our first-year Arnhold Fellows will display their ongoing research in an informal poster session.
Drawing from a wide range of critical fields that reflect the diversity of our department’s centers and initiatives, topics at both events will range from queer fanfiction to critiques of queer criminality, from speculative ecologies to the ethics of artificial intelligence, from vampirism to horror film monsters, from Chaucer’s “The
Wife of Bath’s Tale” to Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale to Rankine’s Citizen.
The Arnhold Undergraduate Research Showcase represents a wonderful opportunity to support advanced undergraduate research in our department. This year, attendees will have the chance to see this research in two stages of its development. Come view the culminating work of our second-year Arnhold Fellows during the research slam, then discuss with our first-year Fellows as they begin the transition from preliminary research to paper drafting during the poster session.
The Showcase is organized as an informal, drop-in event, so feel free to attend for as long or as short as you like. Refreshments will be served!
