The College of Social Science and Communication will host the second annual CSSC Student, Faculty, and Staff Research and Creative Works Showcase on February 26 – 27 in the Donaghey Student Center (DSC) on the UA-Little Rock Campus.
Dr. Londie Martin, Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Writing, served on the committee that organized the event. Dr. Martin said “The committee has worked hard to make the showcase a celebration of the people who make the CSSC what it is—community partners, students, staff, and faculty. We hope the showcase will provide a space to forge new connections and relationships as we share our creativity and insights with each other.”
The Department of Rhetoric and Writing has had a record number of panels, posters, and presentations in this year’s showcase. Please join us to support the students and faculty of the Department of Rhetoric and Writing as they demonstrate the range of research and creative skills in our department.
For the full program, please visit the CSSC Showcase 2018 website.
