Research Abstracts for SRC Due Feb. 11

Truman will conduct the 24th annual Student Research Conference (SRC) April 12.

The SRC is a University-wide celebration of student research, scholarship and creative achievement in all disciplines. Undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines are invited and encouraged to present the outcomes of their scholarly or creative work.

Scheduled classes will not meet the day of the conference, thereby providing the opportunity for all students and faculty members to attend and fully participate.

In addition to the many oral and poster presentations by students, the day will feature a conference-wide plenary address delivered by John Lyden, visiting professor of philosophy and religion from Grand View University. Lyden specializes in interreligious dialogue; religion and culture; and religion and film. He is the author of “Film as Religion: Myths, Morals, and Rituals,” and was the 2008 recipient of the Spiritus Award for outstanding contributions to the study of religion and film.

All presenters are required to submit abstracts online at by Feb. 11. A copy of the information submitted will be sent electronically to the student presenter’s faculty mentor for approval. For inquiries about the SRC, including requests for special sessions and questions about the abstract submission process, contact the Office of Student Research at 785.4455 or
