Poster session proposals reflecting undergraduate research such as these are welcome for submission:
- Honors Thesis
- Completed Research Project
- Proposed Research
- Creative Project
- Course Project
All undergraduate research is eligible: you do not have to be a member of the Honors College or enrolled at Texas State to apply. Along with two cash prizes for best overall posters, this year the NEH Distinguished Teaching Professorship in the Humanities, in conjunction with the Common Experience, is offering cash prizes for the top two presentations in any of the above categories where the submission addresses the topic of Music and War. Conflict and war have always been an integral part of the human experience. The United States has been no exception to these wider trends, and since its beginnings, wars have had many and major formative effects on the development of US identity, culture, society, and policy. We are soliciting posters which engage with any aspect of war and its musical expression.
