Paideia 2014: 13 Years of Stellar Undergraduate Research

(Newport News, Va.) - Christopher Newport University continues to lead in providing invaluable undergraduate research opportunities. On Saturday, April 12, 2014, more than 150 students will present results of their scholarly pursuits at the 13th annual meeting of Paideia, CNU’s celebration of undergraduate creativity and research. This year's program includes keynote speaker Nicholas Huber '07 (English), who will present a speech titled "Denaturalize, Coordinate, Recompose: Objects of Undergraduate Research."

“Paideia (παιδεία)” refers to the classical Greek education of liberal learning, which developed the intellectual, moral and aesthetic capacities of students. In 2002, a small group of CNU faculty organized the first meeting of Paideia, envisioning a yearly celebration of undergraduate research. Since then, the conference has grown into an exciting event that draws audiences from both the university and Newport News communities. This year will feature the inauguration of a new conference tradition -- the selection of the three best student presentations/posters (one for each college), who will be honored with Excellence in Undergraduate Research awards.

Dr. Margarita Marinova, Associate Professor of English and co-chair of the Undergraduate and Graduate Research Council notes, "At CNU, we strongly believe that research at every level has practical ramifications for the way we view human actions and the world in which those actions occur. Undergraduate research encourages fellow Captains to understand, analyze and act positively in the world beyond the Great Lawn. It is one of the things that makes CNU unique. As undergraduate researchers, our students contribute to a vibrant interdisciplinary conversation, benefit from close mentoring relationships with faculty members and have the opportunity to publish their work in our online journal, Cupola."
