More than 140 students from four Inland Northwest universities will give presentations on topics ranging from advertising to the Zapatistas as a part of the 8th Annual Spokane Intercollegiate Research Conference at Gonzaga University’s College Hall from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, April 24. The conference is free and open to the public.
The conference is dedicated to promoting and recognizing distinguished, original undergraduate student research performed in partnership with faculty or other mentors.
Presentations were selected based on originality, quality, and significance. It is also a requirement that the student or faculty member’s work breaks new ground in a discipline, not simply restate or synthesize what is known. Student work must be based on a hypothesis or thesis supported by original research, as defined by faculty in that student’s discipline.
Students will convey their findings through spoken or poster presentation. Presentations will be based on a senior thesis, a research project, an independent study, regular course work, a study abroad experience, a collaborative learning experience, an internship experience, or work done in association with a program. The deadline to apply for presentation has passed.
