Celebrating Collaborations

Celebrating Collaborations


“Celebrating Collaborations: Students and Faculty Working Together” showcases and celebrates the scholarly work of Smith College students. Students present the results of their senior theses, independent study projects, research seminars and other creative work as part of oral sessions, panels, poster sessions, exhibits and performances.

Projects are developed as a result of associations with the Kahn Liberal Arts Institute or Praxis, for example, and fall into categories ranging from science and technology, social, cultural and literary studies to the performing arts.

Celebrating Collaborations is a project of the Committee on Academic Priorities (CAP).

The 16th annual Celebrating Collaborations conference will be held Saturday, April 22, 2017.

The deadline to apply to present your work is Friday, February 24, 2017.
