Baruch College is proud to participate for the first time in an International Conference on Undergraduate Research (ICUR) organized through an alliance of Monash University in Australia and the University of Warwick in the UK. This conference brings together students on panels linked up via teleconferencing. Students will be presenting their own original research papers to audiences around the globe. We have two Baruch students presenting papers this year in a pilot program and their panels will be linked with the University of Warwick. A Warwick student, in residence this year at MIT in Boston, will also be presenting at Baruch. The other participating universities are Nanyang Technological University, Singapore Management University, the University of Washington, and the University of Western Australia.
Baruch students will be participating in two sessions on September 23, Session 10A from 9:40-10:40 and Session 11A from 10:50-11:50 in room H-620 on the 6th floor of the Library Building.
You are welcome to attend the conference and can encourage students who might be pursuing their own original research in your classes to attend this year and think about participating as a panelist in Fall 2015. This year they can watch the Baruch students who will present: Renee Cotsis (Psychology--Session 10A), whose paper is on "White and Asian Difference in Pursuing Math," and Daniel Yang (Political Science--Session 11A), whose paper is on "Democratisation in South Korea during the 1980s." A University of Warwick student, Edward Woodford, will also present a paper entitled "America's covert wars: secrets, contradictions and paradoxes" at Baruch. These students will be on a panel with students presenting at the University of Warwick and questions about the papers are welcome from participants here as well as in the UK.
We would love to have students present their own work at future conferences, which would be great experience and great for their résumées. Please notify students of the event and encourage them to attend!
Space is limited, so please RSVP by September 22 to Katherine.Pence@baruch.cuny.edu and feel free to email with questions.
