Community for Undergraduate Researchers

This two-week workshop aims to boost the number of undergraduates who undertake independent research. Intended for first, second and third year students, it introduces students to the best practices in major disciplinary traditions and the workshop will include visits by faculty in various humanities fields, such as literature, history, language, classics, philosophy, and comparative religion.  In 2022, the workshop will be led by  Andrew Offenberger, Assistant Professor of History, and will meet January 10-21 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

During the workshop, each student will prepare a research proposal, find a specialist advisor, create and annotate a bibliography of initial readings, write an abstract, and make a schedule of work. Participants will leave the workshop with a formal proposal that they can submit for a University Summer Scholarship, a Dean's Scholarship, or an Honors project. 

The workshop is offered free of charge to humanities majors.
