Undergraduate Workshops for Humanities Research

This event is not through the AJC, but I think it will be valuable to the members of AJC.  

The UWHR is a program designed to advise students on what humanities research is, why it’s important, and how to conduct it themselves. For each workshop, both a graduate and an undergraduate student will present their own research in humanities topics and address questions  about conducting research at the undergraduate level.

Graduate Speaker: Anja Seiler (Modern Foreign Languages). Undergraduate Speaker: Evan Ford (Philosophy)
