Call for Abstracts: Intersecting Ideas- Undergraduate Research Colloquium

Welcome to Intersecting Ideas: the first-ever joint undergraduate research colloquium brought to you by the Association of Political Science Students (APSS), the Peace, Conflict and Justice Society (PCJS), the European Studies Students Association (ESSA), and the History Students Association (HSA)!
Intersecting Ideas will provide undergraduate students who have conducted independent and/or significant research on topics in the Social Sciences and Humanities an opportunity to present their papers in front of professors, academics, fellow students, and publishing companies, as well as the experience of presenting an academic paper in a professional setting.
The colloquium will be taking place on Friday March 11, 2016, where several selected undergraduate students, based on the application process, will present their research.
Academics and professors will have an opportunity to provide constructive feedback on students’ works, and to develop connections with the students. The event ultimately provides a public forum for practicing presentation skills and receiving constructive feedback, especially in preparation for graduate school. The event also aims to provide other students with a chance to listen to their peer’s research and work.
Intersecting Ideas is directed at mostly upper year students, or advanced second or first year students.
The call for abstracts is now out! The deadline to submit abstracts to [uoft.urc@gmail.com] is January 22. Please refer to the event for instructions and further details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1717915351776591/
