UMF spring Symposium: displaying academic research and creative work

The University of Maine at Farmington’s university-wide, day-long, spring Symposium took place on Wednesday, April 25, displaying the depth and breadth of academic research and creative work by students from every corner of the university. According to the Daily Bulldog, the Symposium included close to 300 student presenters, mentored by nearly 50 faculty sponsors. These student research projects and original creative works are, “the product of hard work, inventiveness, financial support and deep commitment,” observed Kathryn A. Foster, UMF president. Highlighted presentations included Trustee Professor Jonathan Cohen on “The Music of Nietzsche’s Life” and Libra Professor Christos Teazis on “New Turkey: Towards a New Islam.”
