Annual Research Conferences

Thematic Option's research conferences provide an opportunity for undergraduate students to enrich their academic experience by publicly presenting their ideas and research.  In response to a general call for papers, Thematic Option students developed topics under the given theme to be presented as part of a panel.  Topics are reflective of students’ various disciplines and interests and focus on issues ranging from politics to popular culture.  Each panel is composed of four to five students, with a USC faculty member or Thematic Option writing instructor serving as the panel’s chair and respondent.  A question and answer session follows the presentation of papers in each panel.
