School for Cross-faculty Studies students to present at ICUR 2019
The International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) is an annual academic conference, led and sponsored by the University of Warwick and Monash University, connecting student researchers globally using video conferencing technology.
ICUR encourages students to rethink their own work in an international context. As a forum, it requires presenters to consider the perspective of students from different backgrounds. This challenge also translates to research questions, encouraging students to examine global and regional trends in their research field, and how these might conflict with local concerns and specificities.
This year, the forum will take place on the 24th and 25th of September in The Oculus building, where several students from the School for Cross-faculty Studies will be presenting their research:
