2017 Convention attendees enjoy presentations during the Student Poster Session.

Purpose: The Poster Session is designed to feature both student work in the Social Sciences or highlight the history/activities of a chapter. Posters are exhibits of materials that report academic work or chapter activities in visual and summary form.  Pi Gamma Mu's bylaws define the social sciences to include those disciplines that emphasize the scientific study of human societies and social relationships including, but not limited to, such disciplines as anthropology, criminal justice, economics, geography - human, gerontology, history, history of education, human services, international relations, political science, psychology, social philosophy, sociology, social work, as well as related interdisciplinary programs anchored in the Social Sciences, particularly those that focus on age, environment, ethnicity, gender, race, and regional studies.

Student Posters: Students experience and study the Social Sciences in many ways. This session is designed to feature the variety of these experiences, disciplines, and studies. Posters may present completed original research and data collection, projects and papers which may be "in progress", theoretical works and applications, studies of public policy and summaries of applied experiences such as service-learning projects or internship experiences. In addition, posters provide a means for students to present group projects as well as those of individuals.

Chapter Posters: Pi Gamma Mu is also interested in posters from Pi Gamma Mu Chapters.  Chapter posters can exemplify the diverse strengths of our chapters and share ideas regarding a wide range of chapter-related activities including an overview of a year’s activities, a chapter’s history, service projects, initiations, programming, or recruitment strategies.

Expectations of Poster Presenters:
Students must be members of Pi Gamma Mu and register for the convention in order to be included in the convention program.

Deadlines:
Poster Proposals -  Poster proposals may be submitted any time; however, the deadline is Friday, October 8, 2021
Virtual Poster: If a proposal is accepted, the deadline for submitting your poster presentation is Friday, October 22, 2021.  Submission details will be forthcoming.

Submission Information:
Send poster proposal submissions directly to Dr. Brad Tennant ([email protected]). Contact Dr. Tennant with any questions you may have.

NOTE: Once reviewed and accepted, the presenters/chapters will be notified of their acceptance. This process may help the chapter in seeking institutional funding for the presenters. Thus, members are encouraged to develop their poster ideas now and submit poster proposals early.

 

Poster Proposal Submissions should include the following information:

POSTER TITLE:

PRESENTERS: Please provide names and email addresses for all student and faculty presenters, if possible. At a minimum, each poster submission must have the name and contact information of one individual who will serve as the key contact for the session.

CHAPTER and FACULTY SPONSOR:  Provide the chapter name, institutional affiliation, address, name, and contact information (email and phone number) of a faculty sponsor. 

ABSTRACT:  A summary of the poster's content in 150 words or less including the social science discipline (e.g., psychology, sociology, criminal justice, history, etc.)

Format: Only the proposal needs to be submitted at this time.  If a virtual poster proposal is accepted, the poster presentation should include slides to help visually explain the poster topic.  The presentation should not exceed five (5) minutes allowing for questions and comments afterward.  Posters will be available during the convention. 

Send poster submissions directly to Dr. Brad Tennant ([email protected]).
