Summer Fellows 2017

´╗┐We challenged Summer Fellows to explain their (sometimes) complicated research to us in under 24 seconds. Then, they were asked to sum it up in just seven simple words. Can they do it? #ursinussummer 

  • Jessie Fauset’s novel There is Confusion was a catalyst for the Harlem Renaissance. Jada Grice ’19 brings her work to life in a digital humanities project.

  • Evidence exists that ties a specific protein family to neurogenesis—the growth and development of neurons—and it has been linked to many neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia.
  • How people learn and remember — and the specific factors that play a role in both — is a fascinating research area, and one that Noah Yeagley ’19 is extensively exploring through summer research at Ursinus.
