Only one more week until SpARC! The organizing committee has just finished the schedule and we are excited about a truly interdisciplinary line-up of talks.

Yesterday afternoon I sent out confirmation e-mails to participants and I just need to share some examples of the exciting talks you will be able to listen to during the conference:

In the Humanities section, you will find titles such as Eve and the Desire for Knowledge (Religious Studies), The Female Warrior in Ancient Rome (Classics), and Creating the Femme Fatale: Marlene Dietrich as Object of the Gaze (German Studies). Among the many contributions from the Sciences are Rat Maternal Care and Its Effect on Anxiety As Measured by the Open Field Box (Neuroscience), Monkeys See, Monkeys Play: An Environmental Enrichment Evaluation for Rhesus Macaques at Yerkes Primate Research Center (Biology), and Development of a Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification Method for Diagnosing Opportunistic Fungal Diseases (Biology).

Of course, there is a whole series of poster sessions in the atrium of the Bullock Science Center as well as musical and dance performances in McLean Auditorium and in the Winter Theater.
