On March 29th-31st, three CU Boulder students presented at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Western Political Science Association. The conference took place in San Francisco, California, and gives students an opportunity to show off their own research. To present their research each student made posters jam packed with information. In order to participate, each applicant must submit a proposal to the heads of the 2018 program committee. Emily Martin, Emily Anderson, and Quyncc Johnson each made the cut!
Emily Martin was an Undergraduate Research Fellow during the 2016-2017 academic year. The research she presented at WPSA was supported by a UROP grant in summer 2017 and was part of her honors thesis, which she defended in April 2018. She will be attending American University in the fall for an MA in political science!
Emily Anderson's research was supported by a UROP grant in summer 2017 and was part of her honors thesis, which she defended in April 2018. She plans to pursue a PhD in political theory after graduation!
Quyncc Johnson's research is based on his honors thesis, in which he designed and implemented experimental research to test whether humanized depictions of drug users (such as we see in the movie Moonlight or the show Orange is the New Black) will influence viewers' beliefs about drug policy.
