Undergraduate Research Symposium

2015 Global Studies Undergraduate Research Symposium

global eyes: critical perspectives of an interconnected world

April 13, 2015, University of Pittsburgh
Abstracts due: February 27, 2015
The symposium will highlight student research on the complex array of social forces that characterize our increasingly interconnected world and will provide networking for students and faculty who are shaping how we approach these important topics and/or will provide leadership in the study of global issues in the future. 
We encourage a wide variety of research topics on diverse areas including (but not limited to) the economy, gender, health, education, politics, media, nationalism, ethnicity, spirituality, and community. We invite papers from various disciplines within humanities, sciences, social sciences and professional schools that address the theme of interconnectedness. Submissions that employ diverse theories, genres, and methodologies of research in a plurality of historical and geographical contexts are encouraged.
Pitt’s Global Studies Center and the Global Studies Center at Penn State will host the eventApril 13, 2015. The symposium will include a keynote lecture, student presentations and student networking. Meals and RT transportation expenses from Penn State campuses are covered.
Once abstracts are submitted and approved, papers will be clustered according to general themes that emerge. While we are not giving our awards, notable papers from each cluster will be highlighted on the Global Studies Center’s website.
