Brown support for thesis warfare

Brown University’s Task Force on Undergraduate Education argued for a “more inclusive concept of education—indeed, one so inclusive that conventional distinctions between general education and the concentrations, between the curricular and extracurricular, even between classroom and community need to be rethought.”

Responding to this call, the Curricular Resource Center and Dean of the College are pleased to present Theories in Action – a campus-wide, multi-disciplinary conference giving Brown seniors the opportunity to showcase their work to audiences across school year, program or academic department, and the Brown campus community a moment to celebrate and recognize the challenging work of synthesis and application of knowledge.

TIA gives participants a forum to publicly reflect on the project’s social relevance; participate in skill-building workshops to effectively present to a wider audience; gain feedback from experts in the field, network with others who have common interests, and develop contacts for future collaborative efforts.
