Celebration to honour undergrad research achievements

UWindsor president Alan Wildeman and the Humanities Research Group (HRG) will honour 16 undergraduate students for their work in the field of humanities, Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. in Vanier Hall’s Katzman Lounge, during the Celebration of Student Research and Engagement.

The students represent a range of humanities disciplines, including music, English, drama, sociology, anthropology and criminology, history, psychology, and women’s and gender studies. Their work links with several important campus initiatives, including the Bystander Initiative: http://www1.uwindsor.ca/bystander/; and the Tikkun Project: http://www.uwindsor.ca/education/244/tikkun-olam-youth-project.

“This is a chance to single out some Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences students so we can remind them of how important their work is to faculty and staff, and encourage a stronger research ethos among students,” says HRG director Erica Stevens Abbitt.

“I see this as a very important part of HRG’s mandate connected to the Humanities Week activities… and an expansion of all our HRG lectures and events to include students, as well as faculty, staff and members of the public.”

A reception with light refreshments will follow the formal program.
