Liberal arts thrive at Rochester Institute of Technology.
On Monday, April 29, RITís College of Liberal Arts will hold its fourth annual undergraduate research conference, spotlighting student creativity and acumen on everything from Beethoven to globalization and computer crime.
Student researchers will present their work during 16 panels held throughout the day in RITís Student Alumni Union. Highlights include research on visual communication, popular culture and social life, media representations, consumer culture, oral history, as well as studies in computer crime, new poetry and Beethovenís late Quartets in rehearsal and performance, among other topics.
"The conference showcases the diversity of excellent student research at RIT over the past academic year," says Laurence Winnie, associate dean of the College of Liberal Arts. "In addition, the studentsí research gives us a relevant and, often, poignant commentary on the world as they see it. I think the general public would find their insights interesting and intellectually challenging."
Opening ceremonies will begin at 9 a.m. in the Fireside Lounge of the SAU. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Winnie at 475-6261.
