In collaboration with the University Libraries’ Research Hub, the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science is hosting the Thomas M. Carsey Graduate Student SymposiumonFriday, November 8, 2019, in honor of his memory and as part of the Odum Institute’s 95th anniversary celebration. Tom Carsey, former director of the Odum Institute and esteemed political scientist, was an advocate of graduate student research and support throughout his professional career.
Twenty graduate students from programs across campus will present their projects to three judges and the general public during a poster session from 4 — 5 PM. The judges will score each project individually and then compare notes after the session. The winning project will be announced at 5:45 PM.
But the judges aren’t the only ones who get a vote!
All public attendees will be given two ballots to cast for their favorite project/projects, and the winner of the popular vote will also receive a prize. So make sure to stop by and show your support!
Light refreshments will be provided.
