Dear Students,

The Undergraduate Research Program is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2020 Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities (SIAH)! SIAH offers a funded opportunity for undergraduates to engage in scholarly research with accomplished faculty, graduate students, and peers while earning full-time academic credit.

This year's theme is Contested Bodies: Power, Identity, and the Life Cycle. Looking across time and cultures, the 2020 Summer Institute for Arts and Humanities will examine the body as a site of meaning making around identity, sexuality, reproduction, health, illness, aging, and death. Students will explore how the body has been experienced, imagined, and contested, and they will conduct research on topics related to the biological and conceptualized body in the past and present. By engaging with the historically and culturally unfamiliar, they will reevaluate familiar and normative notions about the body in our own society. They will undertake projects on the body motivated by their own ethical, intellectual, and creative commitments, concerns, and curiosities.
