2016 Arts and Humanities Graduate Student Research Conference Winners

A&H

We at the Graduate School wish to give our most heartfelt thanks to all those involved in the 6th Annual Arts and Humanities Graduate School Research Paper Conference. At Texas Tech University, we strive to create an environment interdisciplinary and collaborative in nature. This year's conference hosted 9 panels ranging from the aesthetics of craft beer to the resting position of a violin on your shoulder. Panels were crafted to achieve the most diverse, yet coherent, presentation possible. Disciplines that almost never intertwine were connected and related, bringing in new perspectives on current research topics. With at least three judges per panel and three students per panel, we had a great turn-out. We were humbled by those who helped make this conference a success and wish to give our gratitude in making this year's event a continuing tradition of excellence.

We especially wish to thank Dr. Kristina Mitchell for presenting her Keynote Address regarding the importance of sharing your research with the world around you.
