2021 Spring Research Conference

Creativity, Human Values, Social Justice, Diversity,  and Civilization

21st Annual College of Liberal and Fine Arts Spring Research Conference

March-April 2021

 

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the COLFA Spring Research Conference! This past year has brought forth unprecedented changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The COLFA Spring Research Conference presents the opportunity for students to critically examine this pivotal moment in history by advancing scholarship and research in the humanities. With an overarching theme of “creativity, human values, social justice, diversity,  and civilization,” the 21st annual Spring Research Conference will serve as a virtual forum for COLFA graduate and undergraduate students to present their original work. Submission topics are not limited to the conference theme. Students are welcome to submit all other topics to the conference.

Students will collaborate with faculty members to develop research presentations, scholarly projects, performances, and other creative works that will be submitted through a competition for awards and recognition. These scholarly accomplishments are critical for obtaining letters of recommendation for future applications for employment and graduate school. By forming synergistic relationships with faculty, students are mentored on developing marketable expertise, engaging in critical problem solving, strengthening communication skills, and enhancing their intercultural awareness. Participants of the Conference benefit by building their resume, curriculum vitae, or academic portfolio by using Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT). CCT helps students track their co-curricular involvement, leadership engagements, and other learning experiences that take place outside of the classroom.

Additionally, by participating in the conference, students are automatically inducted into the COLFA Academy of Undergraduate Research Associates (AURA). AURA gives COLFA and faculty sponsors the opportunity to formally recognize students’ engagement in the production of research and scholarly works at UTSA. In addition to receiving a membership pin, students can list this prestigious UTSA organization on their resume or curriculum vitae.

Process for Participating in the COLFA Research Conference

Identify and talk with your faculty sponsor about submitting and potentially publishing your paper in UTSA’s peer-reviewed Journal of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Works.
Presentations can be submitted in English or Spanish for all categories.
Even if you do not present as part of the conference, consider attending to support and learn about your discipline and the excellent projects COLFA students and faculty are working on! Also, this is a great opportunity to learn how students in your discipline present their research and scholarly works.

The 2021 COLFA Spring Research Conference will be held fully online.  Participants will be required to indicate which of the following seven categories their submissions represent:

Creative Writing: Essays and stories (double-spaced, up to 15-20 pages excluding title and references)
Research Paper: Complete papers with data analysis (double-spaced, 10 pages at maximum excluding title, references, tables, figures, and appendices)
Poster: Complete papers in the form of digital poster format
Español: Essays, stories, or research papers in Spanish (double-spaced, 10 pages at maximum excluding title, references, tables, figures, and appendices)
Digital Media: Video, website, augmented reality, virtual reality media works (on average 3-7 minutes in length)

Tips & Recommendations for Presenters

  • Limit your presentation to 15 minutes. As a general guideline it takes 2 minutes to read one double-spaced page in 12-point font. Shorten your paper to 7 pages, if you are planning to read it. This may mean your presentation version is shorter than the version you originally submitted.
  • Talk with your faculty sponsor about presentation tips, and rehearse your presentation in front of a friendly listener. Speak at a comfortable pace, clearly and confidently. Do not rush. Practicing multiple times can help you feel more confident. Time yourself during each practice so you know you are within the 15-minute timeframe allowed. If you are long on your practice times, shorten your presentation to a comfortable length so you do not run out of time or feel hurried on the day of the conference.
  • General rule for structuring your presentation:
    • tell them what you're going to tell them (intro)
    • tell them the content (content delivery)
    • tell what you've told them (summary/conclusion)
  • Make it clear when you have finished your presentation and when Q&A time will begin.
  • "Thank you for your attention" is a good signal that you have finished. Take questions at the end of your presentation, not before you have finished.
  • If you do not know the answer to a question, say so, and thank the person for the question.
  • If you are using technology for your presentation, practice reading the whole thing with the technology. Time yourself.
  • If you are using technology, have a Plan B. What happens if the technology fails? Can you manage without it? Have handouts ready if you (might) need them. Many listeners like to have a handout to take away with them. A handout also allows you to leave the listeners with your name, department, and contact information.
  • If you are doing a Digital Media presentation and have already submitted your presentation for judging, be sure to bring a backup copy to the conference.

For any question about the conference, please contact Seok Kang (seok.kang@utsa.edu), Jenna Gonzales (jenna.gonzales@utsa.edu), or Tricia Schwennesen (tricia.schwennesen@utsa.edu).

Guidelines for Collaborative Symposia:

  • Instead of submitting a single presentation, students may opt to create a cluster or team of presentations around a content theme (e.g., borderlands, latinx, medical humanities, health communication, etc.) to form a symposium of student presenters. The symposium could involve research papers, creative works, digital media, or art/music performances. The purpose of the symposium is to bring students and faculty together as a team based on their shared interest in a topic area. Each presentation should speak to a different angle on the same theme. Presentations can be from the same or different disciplines. Applications that involve different COLFA departments are strongly encouraged.
  • Collaborative Symposia should include a three (3) to four (4) student presentations. Do not submit more than 4 projects, as there will not be sufficient presentation and discussion time.
  • When forming a symposium, one student should be identified as the Chair (note: often this role can be separately listed on a resume or curriculum vitae) and work closely with their faculty sponsor to plan the symposium.  
  • The Chair will be responsible for completing the online COLFA conference registration starting November 8th, 2019 on behalf of the panel. Completion of this form will serve as an indicator of your intention to participate in the conference as a collaborative panel. The Chair will enter the title of the collaborative panel, the name of the primary faculty sponsor/department who will serve as a Discussant, as well as the title, author(s), home department, and faculty sponsor of each contribution to be printed in the program (in order of presentation). Each faculty member’s email who is supervising each project should be included, and we will contact each faculty member directly.
  • Chairs are responsible for coordinating all presenters, and must submit ALL presentation materials together and on behalf of the symposium (i.e., group entry) no later Monday, February 10th, 2019.  Students who fail to submit a project by the deadline or who fail to present at their designated time during the conference will be ineligible for the awards.
  • Symposia will be judged as a collective for awards.
  • A cover sheet should accompany the symposium proposal. This should include the Chair’s and each applicant's permanent mailing address, phone number, and email address. In addition, students should indicate the paper title, home department, their level of study (undergraduate or graduate) along with their program of study and the name of all supervising faculty. One faculty sponsor should be identified as the Symposium Discussant. All symposia should be clearly marked as entries for the 2020 COLFA Collaborative Symposium Competition.
  • Format of the Symposium: The Chair will begin the symposium by introducing the theme of the panel and why it is important. Each student will then present or perform his/her project. The primary faculty sponsor will then provide a 5-10 minute discussion of the theme and presentations, including, for example, why the theme is particularly important in the larger context of society, the impact of bringing together these presentations to speak to the theme, future directions to expand the field or this line of work, etc. Finally, time should be allotted at the end to allow for questions and discussions about the presentations with the audience.
  • Presentations or performances by each member of the symposium should not exceed 15 minutes.
  • Each symposium paper should not exceed 10 typewritten pages (excluding bibliography). Students with longer research papers should condense their main findings for submission in the 10-page format. Students may want to consult their faculty advisor for assistance.
  • Presentation versions of papers should not exceed 15 minutes (about 7 ½ pages). 
  • An abstract of no more than 250 words should be provided with each presentation, including up to five (5) key words that capture the focus of the individual project. Submissions without and abstract and key words will not be considered complete.
  • If submitting an art or music performance as part of the theme, the abstract will suffice as the submission prior to performance at the conference. The abstract should include a title (e.g., of the art piece, dance performance, musical piece), how it relates to the overall theme, how it is designed/choreographed/selected to speak to the theme, and applicable any sources/references.
  • Chairs are also responsible for submitting an overall abstract (maximum 250 words) describing the relevance of the theme of the collaborative panel, a brief description of each presentation and how each speaks to the theme, and what was learned about the topic area from grouping the presentations together (e.g., “Collectively, these projects inform our understanding of [THEME] by…). Up to five (5) key words should be provided that capture the focus of the collaborative panel. Projects will not be considered complete without an overall abstract and keywords. Chairs are responsible for ensuring that all symposium materials are complete.
  • All submissions should be double-spaced and organized in a format similar to that of articles published in the student’s field of study. Citations, spelling, and punctuation should conform as nearly as possible to the standard rules of the student’s discipline. A bibliography or works cited page must be included with the submitted paper.
  • Submissions may be in English or Spanish.

Regulations and Guidelines for Research Posters:

  • All students who want to enter the poster competition should submit the COLFA conference application form, which opens November 8, 2019. Completion of the form will serve as an indicator of your intention to present a poster, and will allow your name/department/title of project and name/department of your faculty sponsor to be printed in the program. The faculty member who is supervising your research poster must also sign this form.
  • Students must submit:
    • A cover page with the first-author’s permanent mailing address, phone number, and the preferred email address of all student authors. In addition, students should indicate the poster title, the first author’s level of study (undergraduate or graduate), major or program of study (e.g., Anthropology), and the name of their supervising faculty member. Multi-author posters will be judged according to the first author’s level of study.
    • A summary of the study that will be presented on the poster board.  The one to two page typed double-spaced, 12-point font summary must indicate the: (1) introduction with the hypothesis; (2) methods; (3) results; (4) conclusion; and (5) tables and/or graphs.  Do not submit the poster itself or copies of the poster.
    • The summary must be submitted no later than Friday, February 10, 2020. Students who fail to submit the summary of the poster by the deadline or who fail to present at their designated time during the conference will be ineligible for the awards. 
  • Posters should be organized in a form similar to that of articles published in the student’s field of study. Citations, spelling, and punctuation should conform as nearly as practical to the standard rules of the field. Audiences (and judges) typically read posters from a distance of 2 to 4 feet; submitters should choose fonts accordingly (typically 20 point Arial or larger). For information on a movement to create better posters that inspire discussion, see https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2019/06/24/theres-movement-better-scientific-posters-are-they-really-better.
  • The posting space will have foam boards on three-legged easels and clips for attaching posters. To ensure your poster fits the space provided, it should be no more than 48 inches wide (“long”) by 36 inches high. Larger posters will not fit, and may be disqualified.
  • All posters should be clearly marked as entries for the 2020 COLFA Poster Competition.
  • Each presenter is limited to one first or sole author poster submission. In the case of multi-authored works, the first author should be the presenter.
  • Presenters assigned to the 1st Session should register by 8:30 am and they are responsible for setting up their posters by 9 a.m. at the designated poster area on the day of the research conference. Presenters assigned to an 2nd Session should register by 10 a.m. and are responsible for setting up their posters by 10:45 a.m.
  • Submissions may be in English or Spanish.
