Call for Proposals
Due Date: March 29, 2019 by 5:00 p.m.
The College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH) invites proposals for the fifth annual CSSH Undergraduate Research Forum, to be held on Northeastern’s campus on Thursday, April 11, 2019, at CSC 346 from 12:00 – 3:15 p.m.
Any undergraduate CSSH student who has conducted original research independently or in collaboration with a faculty member is eligible to participate. Presentations will be 10-15 minutes long and presenters will have the opportunity to discuss their work with the audience.
Proposals should include the student’s full name and major, a presentation title, and a 500-word description of the presentation, including a clear explanation of the research conducted and the stage of the research project. They will be reviewed by a committee of CSSH faculty and students.
The research topic is open. Students may present results of research conducted in collaboration with faculty or independently. Presentations may emerge from class projects, research-based co-ops, thesis projects, honors in the major projects, capstone projects, etc. Works-in-progress—that is, the sharing of preliminary results—are welcome.
Students who are selected to participate in the forum will be asked to send a draft of their research paper to a faculty discussant no later than one week prior to the forum. Discussants will provide feedback to students and facilitate conversation at the event.
We look forward to receiving many fine proposals!
