Liberal Arts students showcase research at ICUR 2019

ICUR 2019

The annual International Conference of Undergraduate Research (ICUR) 2019 took place on the 24th and 25th of September in The Oculus building on campus, showcasing the best undergraduate research from around the world via internationally video-linked sessions.

Supported by the Monash Warwick Alliance, nine institutions from across the globe, with students presenting from the UK, Australia, Belgium, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, South Africa and the USA, shared their research in a transdisciplinary setting that encouraged presenters to rethink their own work in an international context.

A number of students from the Liberal Arts department took part in the two day conference, presenting their work to their own peers within the University, and to those from partner institutions too. Find out how they found their ICUR 2019 experience below, and be inspired to join the conversation next year.
