Big South Undergraduate Research Symposium (BigSURS)
The English department sponsored the 8th Annual Undergraduate/Graduate Research Conference on
March 1-2, 2013. Papers on topics related to British, world, and
American literature; essays on linguistics, literary and
rhetorical theory, and writing pedagogy; and creative fiction
and nonfiction pieces were presented.
The conference was held April 11-13, 2013 at the
University of Wisconsin. NCUR brings together undergraduates involved
in scholarly and artistic activities representing a range of
disciplines including creative arts, mathematics, business, social science, humanities, physical and life
sciences, natural resources, and engineering, among others. Participants came from more than 300 colleges and universities
representing almost every state in the nation.
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR)
recently hosted its 17th annual undergraduate poster session on
Capitol Hill. This event helps members of Congress
understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking
directly with the students whom these programs impact.
