Each semester some of the best student researchers from the Introduction to International Relations Research course (SIS-206) are selected to showcase their research projects in a Poster Conference that is held in the SIS Atrium at the end of the semester. For many SIS students, the Poster Conference is the first step in taking their research beyond the classroom and engaging in the broader scholarly dialogue on their topics. Many of the presenters use their SIS-206 projects as the basis for a Boren or Fulbright application or a further independent research project, and many also go on to present at the SIS Undergraduate Research Symposium (held each spring).
The Poster Conference is an excellent opportunity to meet students and faculty who share your research interests and to see what your colleagues are researching. The programs from past Poster Conferences are available above right.
