Fifteen upper-years students will present their research as the Senior Colloquium returns to Brandon University on Monday, April 12.
The Colloquium was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic but will take place online this year, with live presentations to be streamed from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The students will cover a wide array of topics, including history, environmental science, religion, music, health care and astronomy.
While the scope of projects is global and beyond, many of the students focused on Manitoba for their work.
The committee has sorted the presentations into five themed sessions:
- 9 to 10 a.m. - Oppositional Politics and Culture
- 10 to 11 a.m. - Brandon through the Archives
- 11 to 11:45 a.m. - Science to Frontlines: Micro to Macro
- 1 to 2 p.m. - How the Land Works: Case Studies in Manitoba
- 2 to 3:30 p.m. - Taking Care: Community, Health Inequities, and Lived Experience.
Previously open to third- and fourth-year undergraduate Arts and Science students, this year's Colloquium was opened up to students from all faculties, including graduate students.
