Celebrations of Scholarship 2024

Celebrations of Scholarship at Millikin University was today and two of my political science students gave research a presentation and a poster. One of the research assistants in the Human Trafficking Research Lab got an honorable mention for a poster on their poster on Human Trafficking from Arrest to Plea Deal in Central Illinois at the Judith & G. Richard Locke Poster Symposium! This poster symposium is dominated by much better funded hard sciences at Millikin with students who are Leighty Science Scholars and have years of research and summer research support while my students are funded through the grants and money that I fundraise or do independent studies and to get academic credit. I think this makes our honorable mention so much more notable and I am proud of their work

Another student presented their senior thesis on Political Fair Use: The Impact of Political Campaigns and Individuals in Promoting Inconsistent Copyright Case Decisions. The students are going on to the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois College of Law respectively in the fall and being a small part of their academic journey is one of my favorite things about being a professor!
