MAILED: April 27, 2000
Education students at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will share the results of semester-long diversity research projects during the Research Expo May 4.
The Research Expo, which will run from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Menominee/Oneida rooms of Davies Center, will feature 42 projects designed by students currently enrolled in four sections of the foundation of education's Social Foundations of Human Relations course, taught by Dr. Cynthia Gray-Mash and Dr. Katherine Rhoades. The event has been held each semester since the fall of 1998.
Examples of research projects to be displayed include:
"The projects introduce students to research as applied to the understanding of cultural complexity and reflective processes that strengthen professional practice in teaching and other professions," said Gray-Mash, assistant professor of foundation of education. "Students select topics, develop methodology and venture out of the classroom to study culture in and beyond the Eau Claire community."
- "An Oral History of an Interracial Family"
- "Public Disgrace? An Ethnography of People with Disabilities in the Public Setting"
- "Law Enforcement: To Serve and Protect Everyone?"
- "Living With AIDS: A Celebration of Life"
- "Racial and Ethnic Representations in Commercials During Prime-Time for Children's Viewing"
- "UW-Eau Claire Campus Accessibility for Students With Physical Disabilities"
The event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Gray-Mash at (715) 836-5587 or send her e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Rhoades at (715) 836-3672 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
