The Latino Studies Program at Indiana University invites undergraduate students to participate in our fifth César E. Chávez Undergraduate Research Symposium to be held Thursday March 28 and Friday March 29, 2019. The symposium aims to encourage undergraduate interdisciplinary research in Latino Studies and scholarly conversations about Latinx experiences.

Held biannually, the Chavez Symposium allows students to conduct research focusing on Latinxs in the U.S. and in transnational contexts. Undergraduate students undertake a sustained research project of their choosing, culminating in a two-day symposium to showcase their research. The Chavez Symposium bridges undergraduate, graduate, and faculty research by partnering each undergraduate participant with a mentor who helps plan and directs the research.

Students can build on a previous class project or explore a new idea, and will collaborate with their faculty member or graduate student mentor to develop their projects. At the symposium, students will share their work through research papers, multi-media, or poster presentations, or other forms appropriate to their chosen area of study, in an engaging and welcoming environment.
Students selected to participate in the Symposium will: create a research plan with their mentor; attend a workshop on presentation skills and poster-making to prepare for the Symposium; participate in the symposium and; should they agree to the program requirements, will receive a $500 stipend to assist in the completion of their projects.

Topics can include, but are not limited to:
Education | Migration | Diasporas | Media | Gender and Sexuality | Cultural Production | Latino Spiritualties | Literature | Health | Public Policy | Activism | Social Justice | Identity Politics | Building community | Citizenship | Race and Class | Oral History | Immigration | Border Theories | Art and Creative Writing
