Sociology Snippets – March 6, 2018
The quarter is winding down, the trees are blooming and the sun is shining! Could we really ask for much more?
This week in Sociology Snippets we’ve got some conference announcements, graduate school resources and opportunities to present your research.
As always, have a great day and Go Ducks!
Submit Your Research to the Undergraduate Research Symposium!
Students simply need to submit a 250-word abstract and details about their format preferences. The Symposium defines research expansively and welcomes all forms of undergraduate creative work from the sciences, social sciences, arts, humanities, professional schools, study abroad, service learning, and community-engaged projects. The symposium has grown each year and the 2017 event included nearly 300 presenters, representing 60 majors and 8 colleges.
The 2018 event will take place in the EMU on Thursday, May 17 and will conclude with a reception and awards ceremony from 5-5:30 and a poster session from 5:30-7:30 pm.
ASURE (Associated Students for Undergraduate Research and Engagement) is offering a series of drop-in workshops designed to guide students through the process of writing an abstract, designing a poster, and preparing and delivering an oral presentation. The ASURE website (https://blogs.uoregon.edu/nexus/events/) lists the dates of all workshops—there is an Information Session scheduled for Monday, March 5 at 4 pm in the EMU Metolius Room and an Abstract Writing Workshop on Monday, March 12 at 4 pm in the EMU Metolius Room.

Interested in human rights? Check out this new graduate program.
Leveraging the online format, the degrees combine theoretical and methodological training with practical skills and applications, as students will study cutting-edge issues through webinars and the online participation of human rights practitioners from around the globe. Unique experiences include virtual field trips, in-depth analyses of current human rights crises with input from actors on the ground, community-engaged projects, and the incorporation of students’ current human rights work.
The degrees are designed for individuals who are currently employed as well as full time students. The programs began in January, 2018, and operate in 7.5 week course durations throughout the year.
