Undergraduate Research Conference

Please join us for this week-long conference featuring student research in the holdings of the Special Collections Research Center.

Students from Professor Joan Bryant’s courses Religion in African American History and Slavery and Abolition alongside students from Professor Patricia Roylance’s course History of the Book have spent the semester immersed in special collections, conducting individual research projects on items they have discovered in our holdings. Marking the culmination of a semester of intensive work, this conference offers students the opportunity to present their research in a public forum.

The conference is open to the public. Refreshments generously provided by the College of Arts and Sciences.
