Undergraduate/Faculty Interdisciplinary Research Conference
Drury College
31 March - 1 April 2000

The third annual Undergraduate/Faculty Interdisciplinary Research
Conference will be held on the campus of Drury College, 31 March - 1 April
2000. Submissions from all disciplines and programs are welcome.

For the Undergraduate Conference: We seek papers which will evoke
discussion among liberally educated undergraduates by establishing a thesis
or claim regarding important issues (ethical, political, religious, etc.),
and supporting that claim through appropriate research. These papers will
also serve as models for subsequent undergraduate interdisciplinary research.

For the Faculty Conference: We seek papers which describe and critique
faculty efforts to incorporate research in the undergraduate humanities -
especially as those efforts focus on the intersection between liberal arts
and pre/professional education. These papers will encourage faculty to
develop and implement new approaches to incorporating interdisciplinary
research in their teaching.

For examples of student and faculty papers from last year's conference,
see: "http://www.drury.edu/faculty/ess/irconf/program99.html".

Submissions of abstracts or completed papers are due by 17 December 1999.
Notification of acceptance is 31 January 2000. All submissions will be
blind/peer reviewed; accepted papers will be posted on the conference
website for participant review at least three weeks prior to the conference
date. Hotel accomodations are available at a very favorable conference
rate. The conference registration fee ($20.00 for faculty, $10.00 for
students) includes the conference proceedings and banquet. See the
conference website for further details:

Previous conferences have attracted students and faculty from colleges and
universities across the United States, including participants from
Washington State University and ANAC members Quinnipiac College and North
Central College. Student presentations have explored the intersections
between psychology, political science, economics, philosophy and history.
Faculty presentations included both theoretical considerations and
exemplary projects in the practice of interdisciplinary education. See
