The University of Houston-Victoria School of Arts & Sciences is hosting an interdisciplinary student research conference on Friday, April 14. Projects from any discipline will be accepted, and any topic or theme is welcome for consideration. We are accepting traditional oral presentations as well as posters. We seek proposals from undergraduate students in any area of the liberal arts, humanities, natural sciences or social sciences. Students completing capstone or honors projects especially are encouraged to apply. Oral presentations should be about 15 minutes. Posters should fit in a 48-by-48-inch space.
Special consideration will be given to projects addressing the theme “Crossing Disciplines.” These can be projects that seek to broaden a traditional discipline or discuss more than one academic area. Topics might include ethics and genetics; literature and psychology; rhetoric and public policy; or any other such interdisciplinary topics. As an interdisciplinary conference, we seek discussion about many different disciplines and methodologies.
Please review the call for papers for more information.
