The Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium is an annual symposium hosting students from across the nation interested in presenting their scholarship. It is the first conference of its kind: there has been no other national platform for undergraduates in the humanities to share their work. The inaugural conference will be held on April 3-4, 2020, at Johns Hopkins University.
For her final project in the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, Gillian Waldo ’19 (film and media studies) directed, shot, and edited the film, “I Know What I Saw.” The film, which takes viewers on a cross country journey through rodeos, deserts, and motels, is now streaming on NoBudge. NoBudge is a platform that spotlights short films and indie features.
Join Humanities for All as three academics at different stages of their careers share their unique approaches to queer theory and discuss how they entered into studying the humanities, obstacles they faced, and how they developed their research interests. 5 p.m., April 23 in the Levering Sherwood Room.
