Students' research essays selected for inclusion in the Undergraduate Research Symposium

Six research papers were selected from among the hundreds produced in College Writing to be included in the Undergraduate Research Symposium. The symposium happens every semester and highlights excellent research being conducted by undergraduates throughout Washington University. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Undergraduate Research has unfortunately cancelled the spring 2020 symposium, but the students are still able to submit an abstract for publication in the OUR’s Washington University Undergraduate Research Digest (WUURD).

Congratulations to the following students for being selected:

Ethan Greenstein, "Mass Incarceration and Privatization: Custody as a Commodity"

Ileana Kesselman, "Tweeting Our Way to Social Change: Social Media Activism and the #MeToo Movement"

Natasha Kuklis, "Hydro Flasks: How Social Media Turned Eco-Fashion into Luxurious Consumption"

Eric Miller, "College Sexual Violence: Cultural Environments and Masculinity"

Yiyan Pan, "Reproductive Autonomy? An Analysis of China's Two-Child-Only Propaganda and Sex Selection Advertising"
