Engaged Scholarship and Social Justice Conference (ESSJ) at Harvard

April 3, 2017

"Harvard College hosted the Engaged Scholarship and Social Justice Undergraduate Research Conference (ESSJ) on Saturday, April 8, 2017 in Harvard Yard. The conference offered undergraduate students an opportunity to disseminate the findings from their research on critical social issues within their respective fields. We welcomed proposals from students whose work have been supervised by faculty and focuses on diversity, equity, and social justice." (Phillip Brooks House: Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship) 

Last year, several students from Brown’s Engaged Scholars program presented their research, with Rachel Black '16 winning first prize. This year, two Brown students presented their work at the conference. 

The two Brown students who presented are both international students here at Brown:

  • Ximena Carranza Risco - Settling for Disaster: The Construction and Governance of Urban Environmental Risk in Lima’s Informal Settlements

  • Emily Cunniffe -  The Politics of Humanitarianism: The Governance of Migration and the Reinforcement of Borders in Ceuta, Spain
