School for Cross-faculty Studies students to present at ICUR 2020

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 and interdisciplinary 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 disciplinary specificities

This year, the forum will take place on the 29-30 September and will be modified to accommodate current pandemic restrictions. Both audience and presenters will join the conference virtually through the new ICUR App.

A number of students from the School for Cross-faculty Studies will be presenting their research at ICUR next week:
