Kent Salem Program Features Student Research 2011Posted Apr. 26, 2011
Kent State University is pleased to announce its sixth annual Undergraduate Research Conference on Thursday afternoon, April 28th. The conference will feature oral presentations and poster sessions by students about research they completed in for-credit classes at the Salem Campus during the 2010-2011 academic year.
This year, three students will give oral presentations on topics in Human Development and Family Studies. An English literature student will talk about the morality play, Everyman.
The oral presentations will also include the re-enactment of the creation of a rice painting by a student in Professor Ed Hallahan’s art survey class. This class project grew out of a study of Navaho and Tibetan sand painting. It culminated in the creation of a group mural made up of twenty individual paintings (see photo). Photographs of the individual rice paintings will be on display.
Poster sessions will cover a variety of topics in Biology and Radiologic Technology. Students will present their research in a visually appealing display and will be present to answer questions and talk about their work with viewers.
Students who participate in the conference will be eligible to win one of the prizes established to encourage excellence in student research.
Oral presentations will take place in the Library at 2:00. Poster sessions will be in the Student Lounge at 1:00 and 4:00.
The program is free and open to the public A complete schedule is available on the Conference Web page at http://www.salem.kent.edu/academics/library/salem/ugr.cfm
