2015 Global Studies Undergraduate Research Symposium

Abstracts due February 27, 2015

Penn State’s Center for Global Studies is excited to announce its involvement with the 2015 Global Studies Undergraduate Research Symposium, being held at the University of Pittsburgh on April 13, 2015. Penn State’s CGS will be working in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh’s Global Studies Center to attract and highlight undergraduate research on a wide variety of global topics and issues. This event will serve as a prime networking opportunity for students looking to build careers in a global field. Any student conducting research emphasizing our interconnected world in areas such as (but not limited to) global economics, gender, health, education, politics, media, nationalism, ethnicity, spirituality, and community is encouraged to apply.

In order to apply, a student must first submit an abstract for review (due February 27). Select students will then be asked to submit a minimum of 8-page research paper to be reviewed by a panel, and to speak at the event on April 13. Students who are chosen to participate in the symposium will give a 12-minute presentation outlining their specific research. Applications and more information can be found at the University of Pittsburgh's Global Studies page. The symposium will include a keynote lecture, student presentations and student networking. Meals and round-trip transportation expenses from Penn State campuses are covered.
