Despite COVID-19, ICUR 2020 will be going ahead as planned on the 29th-30th September 2020. Due to our existing digital infrastructure, ICUR is in a unique position to pivot the mode of delivery in order to accommodate pandemic restrictions. ICUR may look a little different this year, but it will still facilitate and encourage interdisciplinary networking and discussion for undergraduates from around the world.
Spoken presentations will take place via webinars linking students from thirteen institutions on five continents, in a hybrid remote and on-campus format, and audiences will be able to connect to any session, taking place in any time zone, via our new ICUR App. Virtual poster presentations will also be accessible throughout the 48-hour event. To register your interest in attending the conference virtually and to receive information on downloading and registering via our App in September, please fill out our audience registration form at icurportal.com now.
The Then & Now project was conceived by Dr. Kathryn Woods, formerly Director of Student Experience for the Arts Faculty, to coincide with the faculty’s move into a new building in 2021. The main research aim of this student-led project was to explore the experiences of Arts and Humanities students at Warwick from 1965 to the present. In addition to tapping directly into the experiences of current and former students through oral history interviews, the project examined the art and architectural heritage of the Humanities building, the evolution and expansion of the courses and departments within the faculty, the extra-curricular sides of student life (socialising, sports and societies, student politics) which contribute so much to the vibrancy of Warwick’s campus, and attitudes towards inclusivity and widening participation.
We are delighted to share the news that Dr Elena Riva, IATL Director of Studies and Associate Professor, has won the Warwick Award for Teaching Excellence as well as IATL Associate Tutor Dr Bo Kelestyn (Chemistry)
