Communication within the Curriculum

Through the Emerging Scholar Talk (EST) competition, CWiC celebrates both strong research projects and solid speaking abilities by providing students with a public forum in which to talk about their academic work. Emerging Scholars may present any type of research in any field that they have conducted independently at Penn. This may include independent studies, senior theses, class projects, etc. All undergraduates in all four schools are welcome and encouraged to apply.

camra Fellows

The fundamental objective of the CAMRA Mellon Fellowship Program is to increase the national pipeline of undergraduate students who complete Ph.D. programs in core fields that engage with both the theoretical and practical underpinnings of multimedia research, interrogating the politics of representation and power at play in visual scholarship and media, as well as harnessing the potential of visual methods to democratize the production of knowledge in academic spaces.
