On Thursday and Friday, Nov. 11-12, 2004, the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University Northwest will hold its first annual Faculty and Student Research Conference.
The two-day conference, which welcomes the public, will be held in the Library Conference Center from 1 to 5 p.m. on Thursday and from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The conference will consist of 15 panel and poster presentations covering a range of topics within the humanities, social sciences and science disciplines. Many of the presented papers were written by students with the assistance from a faculty sponsor.
"This event is designed to showcase the breadth of current research interests among the faculty and students in the College of Arts and Sciences," said chair of the conference planning committee Frank Caucci, Ph.D., professor of French.
"This was a really unique learning opportunity for undergraduate students who from this experience may be interested in pursuing graduate school."
The conference was an idea in the works for about two years and reached fruition thanks to a dedicated committee. The committee members were: Robin Hass Birky, Ph.D., associate professor of English; Kristin Huysken, Ph.D., assistant professor of geology; Diana Chen-Lin, Ph.D., associate professor of history; and Michelle Stokely, Ph.D., lecturer in anthropology.
A list of paper topics and panel times is attached. For more information, please call Dr. Caucci in the Department of Modern Languages at (219) 989-6714.
