Student Research Conference

on 23 August 2007, the Honors in Amsterdam students presented their research findings to a full house. Conference participants and audience members included colleagues from UW Honors Program, UW iSchool, UvA ISHSS, UvA New Media, and Virtual Knowledge Studio.
For the UW students, this conference was the culmination of research conducted in Amsterdam for the study abroad program titled: Pragmatic Tolerance & Urban Culture in Amsterdam: Interdisciplinarity research with the use of e-research practices. Presentations were divided into three thematic clusters based on methodological approaches to research.

Research presented in the Urban Native session focused on social issues situated primarily in the urban context. The Digital Native session was presented by a group of UvA New Media students whose research explored methods for analyzing strictly online interaction. The final session included projects that explored the intersection of Urban space and Digital media.

And finally, here's a short video clip of the conference made by Ed Crabbe, one of the students in the program.
