Thomas M. Carsey Graduate Student Symposium
Friday November 8, 4:00 PM | Davis Library Research Hub

In collaboration with the University Libraries’ Research Hub, the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science is hosting the Thomas M. Carsey Graduate Student Symposium on Friday, November 8, 2019, in honor of his memory and as part of the Odum Institute’s 95th anniversary celebration. Tom Carsey, former director of the Odum Institute and esteemed political scientist, was an advocate of graduate student research and support throughout his professional career.

The symposium is open to UNC-Chapel Hill master’s and PhD students conducting social science research. Students can submit their abstracts for a poster presentation session. Students whose abstracts are accepted will have the opportunity to present their research to attendees in a conference-like setting (with fabric poster printing paid for by the Odum Institute), where they can network with other researchers and students. Posters will be judged by a panel of faculty and experts.

September 24 — Deadline for abstract submissions
October 22 — Deadline for poster file submissions
