Student Research Conference on April 15

Truman will host its 27th Annual Undergraduate Research and 12th Annual Graduate Student Research Conference (SRC) April 15.

The SRC is a celebration of undergraduate and graduate research, scholarship and creative achievement. To provide an opportunity for all students and faculty members to attend the conference, no classes will meet during the day. Evening classes will still meet at their scheduled times.

This year’s conference will feature contributions from more than 400 undergraduate and 26 graduate student authors, mentored by 137 faculty members. Presentations will take the form of oral papers, posters, performing arts and studio arts. The SRC website provides information on all presentation abstracts, which can be electronically browsed and extensively searched. Customized schedules can be created on the website.

As the SRC Plenary speaker, Truman will also welcome Jeffrey McClurken, chair and professor of history and American studies at the University of Mary Washington. McClurken is a leading scholar in the area of digital humanities. His talk will explore opportunities for undergraduate students and faculty to be active participants in the consumption, analysis and creation of knowledge in the digital realm, transcending the traditional closed circle of classroom knowledge production.

There will be no registration table or ID tags at the SRC event. Oral papers will be presented in Violette Hall, Ophelia Parrish, and Magruder Hall. Music and theatre performances, art exhibits and oral presentations will be featured in Ophelia Parrish. Hardcopy program booklets will be available in buildings with presentations. There will also be several scheduled refreshment breaks throughout the day. A concurrent poster session and celebration reception will take place in the Student Union Building Georgian Rooms at the end of the conference.

The Student Research Conference is planned and coordinated by the Office of Student Research.
