EOP sophomores gain research experience
This semester, seven EOP sophomore students participated in a pilot program—the Independent Undergraduate Research in the Humanities (IURH) program. The program culminated in a poster presentation and reception at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10.
Cosponsored by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH) and EOP, IURH helped students hone their skills as they spent the semester developing a research project on citizenship. In the process, students learned to pursue humanistic study from a disciplinary (or inter/multi-disciplinary) perspective of their preference.
Students in the program were guided by the program’s coordinator, Brendan Mahoney, and faculty mentors Anne Bailey, Africana studies; Bat-Ami Bar On, philosophy; John Frazier, geography; Melissa Free, English; Ricardo Rene Laremont, political science; Donald Nieman, provost; Anthony Preus, philosophy; Dale Tomich, sociology; Nancy Um, art history; Ryan Vaughan, English; and Julia Walker, art history.
