Six Duke Students Present Papers at DKU Humanities Research Conference
A group of five Duke seniors and one junior are at Duke Kunshan University this weekend to present papers at the first DKU Undergraduate Humanities Research Conference. Over 230 submissions were received, and 40 students were selected to present at the conference. DKU's Humanities Research Center (HRC) distributed the application through the Office of DKU Programs, who partnered at Duke with Directors of Academic Engagement to forward event details to students. Duke participants were selected based on the quality of their research papers.
Each of the six Duke students will present research papers at the conference, many of which are their senior theses. All of the students were placed on panels organized around specific themes, and will present alongside undergraduate students from across China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. Duke and Duke Kunshan faculty in the humanities and interpretive social sciences are serving as discussants. The conference agenda can be found on the HRC website.
