Call for student papers

2018 Regional Undergraduate Student Research Conference to explore connecting knowledge and practice

A call for papers has been issued for the eighth annual Regional Undergraduate Student Research Conference (RUSRC), to be held Saturday, Feb. 24, at Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania.

The University of Delaware is a member of the RUSRC Consortium, which was formed by UD’s Department of Black American Studies under the leadership of Carol Henderson, who is now vice provost for diversity at UD. Other members of the consortium are Delaware State University, Lincoln University and Arcadia University.

The 2018 conference theme is “Bridge Building: Connecting Knowledge, Culture and Practice in the 21st Century,” and the deadline for student proposals is Nov. 30.

This conference will address how ideas transform into action, how an enhanced understanding of cultural experience is critical to social progress and the relationship between experimentation and practical application. The general focus will be how undergraduate research in all fields can move out of private spaces into public areas that inspire change. All disciplines, ideas and projects are welcome.

Possible topics could include the power of social media, humanism and the concept of “mattering” in the 21st century, digital humanities as activism and transforming philosophy into action.

Interested UD students must complete the abstract form and send it to Regina Wright, associate dean for diversity in the College of Health Sciences at rsims@udel.edu.
