Announcing the MSCU Research Collective

This summer the MSCU will be holding a Student Research Collective (SReCo). The SReCo will give students a chance to come together and discuss their own research on a topic of their choosing. In order to give some degree of uniformity to the SReCo, there will be a single unifying theme to link the disparate research.

The theme of this summer's SReCo is: History in the Middle Ages. This theme relates to how history was seen in the Middle Ages. Students will attempt to answer the question of how the Medieval viewed, recorded and remembered the past and how these views shape our understanding of the period. Students may pick any topic for their research as long as it can be related to the theme.

The first meeting of the SReCo will be on Wednesday, June 13th at 6:30 in Clearihue B215. This is a fairly informal research collective, students are encouraged to attend any meetings they want. At these meetings we will discuss our ideas and learn from each others' unique perspectives.

The SReCo will culminatewith a small conference in the end of August (the date will be announced). In this conference students will be encouraged to give papers presenting the findings of their research. Only students will wish it will have to give papers More information on this conference will be provided closer to the event.

If you'd like any more information, please send us an email or leave a comment. We hope to see you at our first meeting. If you know anyone interested please bring them along.
