SUHP Conference Agenda 2021

  1. 1. SUHP Conference 2021 Agenda
  2. 2. Dear Attendee, It is our great honor and privilege to welcome you to the second Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications (SUHP) Annual Conference, hosted by the Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal (NURJ). Expanding on the debut event held in 2019, our conference this year aims to explore current issues affecting academic publications and our communities alike. The sessions will equip you with ideas and strategies to be implemented in your respective organizations. Furthermore, you will learn about and explore potential career paths in research and engage with leaders from a wide array of disciplines. Finally, you will have the opportunity to meet other aspiring editors and researchers from all over the world. We are particularly excited to incorporate a number of social events, from networking sessions to breakout rooms with speakers. Even in this virtual format, we hope that you will utilize this opportunity to meet your contemporaries and forge new friendships. On behalf of the SUHP and NURJ, we are thrilled to have you at the conference, and we look forward to seeing you on January 7th! Sincerely, Shreya Sriram, Editor-in-Chief of the Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal Kevin Bai, Co- Managing Director of Development of the Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal John Cao, Co- Managing Director of Development of the Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal
  3. 3. NURJ Staff About the John Cao is a third-year majoring in Mathematics, MMSS, and Piano Performance. He is also pursuing the Financial Economics Certificate in the Kellogg Certificate Program for Undergraduates.

Outside of school, Kevin is also the Co-founder of Cure Benefits, a health benefits start-up aiming to bring transparency and common sense to the industry. In his free time, he enjoys playing violin, with recent music endeavors including starting a YouTube channel with his 11 year old brother and performing with NYO-USA for three summers. Shreya Sriram is a third-year at Northwestern University where she majors in Economics and Communication Sciences and Disorders on the Pre-Medicine track. She is currently Editor-in-Chief of the Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal where she leads a team of over 60 students in creating and releasing online content and a full length research journal. She is also founder of NSSLHA- Undergraduate, a pre-professional group for CSD students, and serves on the Northwestern Alumni Alliance Board of Directors as president of Arch Society. Shreya pursues her research passions through exploring auditory areas and their functions in the mammal and avian models. Shreya hopes to explore the intersections of economics and healthcare as well as the importance of the patient experience in medical school. When not on campus, she can be found volunteering at Lurie Children’s Hospital, performing stand up comedy, practicing Bharatanatyam (a Classical Indian dance style), or playing the violin.
  4. 4. The Northwestern Undergraduate Research Journal (NURJ) is an annual student-produced journal that showcases outstanding research done by Northwestern undergraduates from across all academic fields. Our mission is two-fold: to provide an opportunity for the many undergraduates passionate about research at Northwestern to publish their work, and to complement the University’s emphasis on interdisciplinary research that spans a wide spectrum of areas including neuroscience, material sciences, social sciences, and humanities. As the only peer and faculty-reviewed journal of undergraduate research at Northwestern University, the NURJ serves to introduce undergraduates to the review and publication processes indicative of the research world. It is an opportunity for students to engage with the research community and networks. For more information, visit thenurj.com. Facebook: @nuresearch Instagram: @thenurj Twitter: @NU_research
  5. 5. I founded the Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications (SUHP) on a single guiding principle: all students, regardless or their discipline, background, or institution, should have the opportunity to conduct and showcase original research. Engaging with faculty mentors and peers helps students develop skills valuable beyond the classroom and useful for the rest of their lives. Undergraduate research journals play a fundamental role in producing a campus culture that encourages scholarship, which in turn promotes innovation, creativity, and an entrepreneurial mindset. Since its inception, SUHP has connected students from various schools across the United States. But we have not just shared our respective publishing policies and practices. No, our interactions have formed personal and intellectual bonds alike. We are, after all, friends first and colleagues second. This sense of community has allowed our organization to grow even during a pandemic. The spread of COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the 2020 conference at Northwestern. Yet months of securing panelists, renting out event space, and organizing a weekend full of activities was not all in vain. Instead, by hosting the 2021 event online, we have been able to expand our membership. With over 55 journals from three continents and multiple disciplines, SUHP has transformed into a global hub for undergraduate publishing. We have extended not only the number of students involved, but also the nature of our collaborative projects. With the introduction of initiatives that seek to enact social change, SUHP has committed itself to become an advocate for justice in addition to scholarship. More exciting work lies on the horizon. Our common passions will foster explosive growth. I am writing this letter almost two years after the birth of SUHP and months before I graduate from Yale. I do not slip into hyperbole by claiming that working with you all has proved to be one of my most rewarding undergraduate experiences. I sincerely hope that you can all say the same when you reach the end of your college time. For more information, visit thesuhp.org. Sincerely, Henry Jacob, Founding President of The SUHP and Editor-in-Chief of The Yale Historical Review
  6. 6. Born and raised in New Haven, Connecticut, Henry Jacob is a senior at Yale majoring in history and pursuing a Certificate in Spanish. Outside of SUHP, Henry serves as the Editor in Chief of The Yale Historical Review. Henry’s scholarly interest lies in Panama. He is conducting research on Panama’s role as a cynosure of imperial designs across centuries and empires. You can find his most recent work in the upcoming issue of The Latin Americanist. Now that Henry cannot travel to archives, he has made his parent’s third floor his academic garret. When not meeting writing deadlines or responding to emails about undergraduate publishing, Henry tries to convince his mom and dad to adopt a COVID cat. Henry promises that he will be diligent in cleaning the litter box. SUHP Staff About the

Since 1988, he has been a full professor in Northwestern’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Over the past 48 years, Allen has pioneered theoretical approaches, algorithms, and applications of finite- difference time-domain (FDTD) computational solutions of the fundamental Maxwell’s equations of classical electrodynamics. FDTD has emerged as a primary means to solve the largest and most complex science and engineering problems involving electromagnetic wave phenomena, devices, and systems from ultralow frequencies to visible light. His major publication, Computational Electrodynamics: The Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method, has been ranked the 7th most-cited book in physics, currently with more 20,000 Google Scholar citations. Allen is a Life Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the recipient of the 2014 IEEE Electromagnetics Award, and a Fellow of The Optical Society (OSA). Currently, he is conducting petaflops-scale computational microscopy applications of FDTD in support of research at Northwestern led by Biomedical Engineering Professor Vadim Backman dealing with the detection and potential treatment of early-stage human cancers.
