I was asked by the International Comparative Studies department to participate in their “Movements & Exchanges in an Unequal World: ICS at 40″ conference that will be held from Thursday, February 28th to Friday, March 1st. The conference celebrated the department’s 40th anniversary. On Friday, March 1st, I presented alongside two other Graduation with Distinction candidates, Gena and Jeline from 11:45 – 12:45 to share our work in the “Refugees, Rescue, and Race: ICS Honors Research” panel discussion. It was really exciting to share my work and to get some feedback from guests lecturers, faculty, and peers!

On Friday, April 1st, I presented at the Fifth Annual Art, Art History & Visual Studies Graduation with Distinction Colloquium. I presented another version of the Powerpoint I originally showed at the “Movements and Exchanges” conference after I made some changes in my thesis arguments. This new, tailored version of the Powerpoint included more imagery and videos to really engage the visual crowd as I talked through some of the symbolic motifs. When you present, these presentations fly by!
