Conference Information

The Department of Sociology at DePaul University hosts an annual research conference for undergraduate students who have completed their own scholarly or creative project with a faculty member or from a sociology course.  The Sharing Social Knowledge conference is an opportunity to showcase the hard work of our students, to give them a forum in which to share what they have learned in conducting their own research, and to provide the wider community a chance to learn something new about the society we live in, whether that be the DePaul community, Chicago more generally, the United States, or globally.

Students present their work in one of the following formats as a paper presentation, as a poster presentation, as a roundtable discussion, or as a creative display such as a short film or a photography exhibit much like at a professional sociology conference.  Each presentation format allows students to summarize their main findings and to highlight the contribution of their work as well as answer questions from audience members. 

The Call for Papers for the  2016 Conference is published.  The submission deadline is March 31, 2016.  If you have questions, contact Monique Billings, Academic Advisor in the Department of Sociology, at mbillin2@depaul.edu.
