Central hosted the Midwest Undergraduate Conference in the Humanities (MUCH) for the first time Nov. 12. Students from 10 colleges presented their research and creative work. Presentations explored areas including English, history, philosophy, religion, art, theater, Spanish, French, German, Russian and more.
Keynote speaker Aron Aji also presented. Aji is director of the Master of Fine Arts in Literary Translation program at the University of Iowa.
“It’s really a celebration of student scholarship,” said Kathy Korcheck, associate professor of Spanish. “It allows us to showcase the best of Central College student research and to help put our own students in contact with student researchers at other institutions.”
