Undergraduate Research Showcase

On Friday, April 7, the Department of Modern Languages & Literatures hosted our annual spring event, the Undergraduate Research Showcase, in Blow 332. We were excited to have seven presenters and five wonderful presentations from the Chinese, French/Francophone, and Russian studies programs. These included:

  1. Alex Earls, "French Universalism Sets the Stage for Treaty Compliance"
  2. Xiwen Liu, "Unpacking the Autonomy of Chinese NGOs in the Internet Philanthropy Landscape: A Case Study of 99 Giving Day"
  3. Aliia Woodworth, "The World of Chinghiz Aitmatov"
  4. Alexandra Byrne, "Inalienable for Whom? Activism and the Politics of Postcolonial Restitution in French Museums"
  5. Daniella Marx, Kathryn Webb, and Ken Butcher, "The Geopolitics of Religion: Reclaiming Rights for Muslims in Georgia" 

These presentations were diverse in terms of academic discipline, geographical area, and historical period. The event was well attended -- with about forty students and faculty in the audience. The presenters shared their research findings, which were extremely fascinating and enlightening. The presentations were followed by a lively Q&A.
