Literary Event: URCAD

Tomorrow is our Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement Day. Undergrads from all over campus will be presenting their work in a variety of formats (last year I moderated a panel of presentations, one of which was a film prepared by a student in anthropology who visited Ghana and chronicled the art of drum making--it was the coolest bit of undergrad "creative activity" I'd ever seen!). Any part of this would be perfect to write up on the "literary event" page. And there's free food. Here's more info from Jason Jones, who organizes URCAD:

Dear everyone,

This is just a quick note to say that tomorrow is Undergraduate Research & Creative Achievement Day (URCAD). Please announce it to your students, and encourage them to come see student work!

The full schedule is here:

Some highlights include:

The plenary session in Marcus White Living Room at 9am will feature Amanda Johnson, who has won the Burritt Library Undergraduate Research Prize. (This session includes FREE BREAKFAST!)

From 11.15-12.45, there will be a poster session in Founders Hall. (This session includes FREE LUNCH!)

At 1pm, in Marcus White Living room, a breakout panel will include Sharon Kenniston's paper on Toni Morrison & high school censorship, as well as Alex Jarvis's presentation on "Literature 2.0."

Please consider dropping by one of these events to support our students!
