We’re Talking About Research: Graduate Research Symposium

Last week was a busy week for our graduate students here at Duquesne. The first Graduate Research Symposium took place last Friday, October 25 in the Africa Room within the Duquesne Union. I find things like this interesting. Call me nerdy. I say this because I think of my time as a graduate student. I was working full time, was just starting a family, and going to school. Most days I didn’t know if I was coming or going. I was lucky to make it out of the house with shoes on, let alone my clothes matching. The amount of time and attention the students give to research is truly inspiring. For that, I say a tip of the cap to you.

The Graduate Research Symposium is, “Open to Duquesne University graduate students from all disciplines, the GSRS allows students the opportunity to gain valuable experience presenting research, receive a mark of distinction for their CVs, practice for job interviews and/or future national conferences, and interact with peers and faculty from various
disciplines.”

Congratulations to all the winners from the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts. The Center for Study of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition presented both of its awards to Liberal Arts students, Oleksandr Dubov’s “Religious Coping in the ICU” and Benjamin Burkholder’s “Misquoting Jesus?” two of the three provost’s awards for scholarship went to our students, Matthew Valentine’s “A Kantian Theory of Higher Desires” (runner-up) and Belinda Hasanaj’s “Authorship Attribution Methods in Albanian” (winner).

Until next week,

-Jason
