Communicating Research Seminar Series:
Wednesdays September 28th - November 16th
4pm Pamplin 3028
Come learn about COMMUNICATING YOUR RESEARCH in this interactive 8 week seminar series that will illustrate the principles and techniques that provide a clear and concise means of communicating and presenting research for undergraduates.
The American Historical Association blog, AHA Today, posted the first of two research reports by students working on the history of tuberculosis in the United States. The post is available here. This project, funded by 4VA, allowed six undergraduates and two recent graduates from Virginia Tech (Rachel Snyder and Jay Pandya), George Mason University, and the University of Virginia to conduct paid research on a topic that connected the history of medicine with the digital humanities. The students presented their research twice this summer, once at a forum in Washington DC sponsored by the National History Center, the American Historical Association, and the Wilson Center, and once at a meeting in Bethesda MD with tuberculosis specialists at the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The post, which examines race and disease using the original research conducted by these students, was based on these presentations and the comments of experts in attendance. A second posting, which will explore the methods of this project in more detail, is scheduled for later this month.
