Grace Gipson Presents at UNC's 2018 MURAP Conference

We're so pleased to see BCNM's Grace Gipson (African American Studies) sharing her research with the undergraduate scholars of tomorrow by presenting at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's 2018 Conference for the Moore Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program. The conference focused on Afrofuturism and Indigenous Futurities.

MURAP is a graduate-level research experience for highly talented undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds who are interested in pursuing doctorates in the humanities, social sciences, or fine arts. It aims to foster the entrance of students from underrepresented minority groups, as well as others with a proven commitment to diversity, into PhD programs and faculty positions in academia. Each summer, the program brings a cohort of 20 rising juniors and seniors in college together for an intensive, ten-week research experience.

Grace presented "Journey through Monae's Wondaland: A Reflection of the Future's Rock Star" on a panel entitled "Identity Tomorrow."
