AMCS Spring Research Colloquium

DUC 234, 12:00pm-5:00pm



We are excited to present thirteen AMCS Majors who will share their capstone / thesis research with the community. These students are pursing important questions in the field of American cultural study, employing a wide array of humanities and social science approaches. Our students’ interests are particularly relevant, their research covering topics such as contemporary campaign rhetoric, federal education policies, and the accessibility of mental health services for the Latinx population. The presenters are listed below, and the presentation titles will be posted soon.

We will also announce the winner of the 2017 AMCS Lynne Cooper Harvey Undergraduate Writing Prize, which recognizes outstanding work on a topic in American culture studies.

Refreshments will be available at 11:45 AM.

Friends and family are welcome!
