Congratulations to Honors students Joshua LaFollette and Sara Jenkins, Stuart A. Ryder Scholarship winners in second place and honorable mention, respectively, in the 2018 Communication Arts Conference at Judson University!
The Communication Arts end-of-semester conference provides an opportunity for the members of the CA community (which includes majors in Communication Studies, English, Interdisciplinary Communication, Media Business/Management, Media Writing, and Secondary Education: English) to practice their craft in a context that goes beyond the classroom and approximates the “real life” situation of an academic conference.
Josh, a senior Media Writing major, presented on “Music in Advertising.” Sara, a sophomore Secondary Education major, presented a paper on “Graphic Novels in the Classroom.”
Great work, Josh and Sara!
If you have a project you are proud of and want the experience of sharing it with interested peers and faculty from around the country, here are two opportunities to present at Honors events, with proposal deadlines approaching.
The Mid East Honors Association annual meeting is in Columbus, Ohio the weekend of March 23-25. Check out the Call for Proposals. The deadline for proposals is February 22.
The National Collegiate Honors Council annual meeting is November 7-11, 2018 in Boston. Proposals are being accepted until March 1. Judson is a member institution, so check with Dr. Kaplowitz for login information if you want to submit a proposal.
For more information, for assistance with a proposal, or to inquire about possible funding to help cover expenses, contact Dr. Kaplowitz. Also check in if you don’t have something to present this year but are interested in attending.
Do you have a paper you would like to present off campus? All it takes is a 250-word abstract to submit a proposal for the 26th Annual Clement S. Stacy Memorial Undergraduate Research Conference. Purdue University Northwest hosts this annual event, which will take place on Friday and Saturday, April 20-21, 2018 in Hammond, Indiana.
The conference is a forum for undergraduate scholars from across the upper Midwest to present their projects and discuss the results of their research with fellow students and faculty mentors. Past students have enjoyed their participation and gained much valuable insight and experience.
Information about the abstract submission guidelines, deadline, and conference details can be found at the Clement S. Stacy Memorial Undergraduate Research Conference webpage.
The deadline for submissions is this week (February 2). If you would like help with your proposal and/or with securing funding to make the trip, please contact Dr. Kaplowitz.
Congratulations to Honors students Catherine Anderson and Joshua LaFollette for sharing first place as Stuart A. Ryder Scholarship winners from the recent Communication Arts Conference! Catherine, a senior English major, presented her paper “We Live Again.” Josh, a senior Media Writing major, presented on “The Evolution of the Transgressive Exploitation Film.” Great work by great students!
We had a successful Fifth Annual Student Research Day at Judson on April 24! Organized by The Honors Program and sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, each year the event celebrates and showcases some of the best work done by Judson students during the year. Eight students presented on their work from this year, in disciplines ranging from Architecture to Film to Biochemistry to Literature to Worship Arts to Graphic Design.
The Honors Program was well represented. Graduating seniors Natalia Warren and Rachel Peterson, as well as junior Catherine Anderson, shared their work.
In “The Importance of Inquiry,” Natalia reported on designing an interactive peer-to-peer learning activity for students.
Rachel shared from her study of 1893 Columbian Exposition Women’s Building architect Sophia Hayden in “Sophia Hayden: A Story of Success.”
And Catherine read from her award-winning study of “Redefining Piety” in Homer.
Congratulations to all presenters, and many thanks to the nominating faculty!
The Honors Program was well represented at this year’s Communication Arts Conference, including three Stuart A. Ryder Scholarship winners.
Congratulations to First-Place finisher Kimmy Blake and to Second-Place finishers Catherine Anderson and Joshua LaFollette!
