UNRH is a network founded by and for undergraduates in order to reimagine the undergraduate role in innovative humanities research. We aim to aggregate, present, and promote student research that questions the methods of traditional humanities research. We further hope to establish a sustainable network of digital scholarship through which students might question and break down leading models of teaching & learning in order to reclaim student agency.
This conference addresses these goals in four ways:
- We provide a physical platform for the submission, peer reviewed selection, and presentation of projects alone or in collaboration.
- We engage in workshops, in order to develop skills for professional development, whether that be within academia or outside of it.
- We gather for ‘design thinking’ sessions with the purpose of drawing out the problems in the current undergraduate research model in order to create actionable solutions.
- We establish a network for peer-learning and collaboration across institutions and countries.
