IPRH and the Office of Undergraduate Research seek to bring together faculty and staff to consider how we engage the undergraduate research experience at Illinois and how we might create a set of new models to shape the future of undergraduate research that re-centers the importance of the humanities in undergraduate education at Illinois.
Participants can expect to hear details about competitive grant opportunities to develop ideas that they generate, with particular attention to those that engage digital methods, underrepresented and underserved students, or emphasize a public-facing dimension. These grants will be offered by the Office of Undergraduate Research and IPRH, up to $5,000.
Keynote by Ellen McClure, professor of French and Francophone Studies and History, and Director of the Engaged Humanities Initiative at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Panels and discussions/breakout sessions will follow.
Early bird registration is now open. Registration is required and seats are limited.
