Thomas M. Carsey Graduate Student Symposium

November 8, 2019 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Davis Library Research Hub, 2nd Floor

In collaboration with the University Libraries' Research Hub, the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science will host the Thomas M. Carsey Graduate Student Symposium on Friday, November 8 at 4-6pm in honor of his memory and as part of the 95th anniversary celebration.

Masters and PhD students from any field in the social sciences are welcome and encouraged to apply here. Applications close on September 24.

The symposium will be open to UNC-Chapel Hill graduate students conducting social science research, broadly defined. Students interested in participating should submit their abstracts for consideration. Students whose abstracts are accepted will have the opportunity to present their research to attendees in a conference-like setting (with posters paid for by the hosts), where they can network with other researchers and students. Posters will be judged by a panel of faculty and experts.

The student who submits the winning poster will choose their prize from the following:

  1. A 2-day Data Matters 2020 course (offered by Odum, RENCI and the National Consortium for Data Science)
  2. A 2-day course at the Qualitative Research Summer Intensive in July 2020 (offered by Odum and ResearchTalk)
  3. A $500 ResearchTalk gift certificate for a fall/spring ResearchTalk course (offered by ResearchTalk)

If you are unsure if your research qualifies for the symposium, feel free to contact for clarification.
Please note that participants are welcome and encouraged to submit projects that they have presented or plan to present at other events.
