The Humanities Education and Research Association (HERA) conducted its 10th Annual Conference, “Humanities Through The Ages,” in Chicago this spring. Presenters include department chairs, full professors, graduate and undergraduate student research from all across the nation. The following UHD students representing the College of Humanities & Social Sciences served as conference panelists:

  • Patrick Graham (Humanities)
  • Lindsay Ware (English & Humanities)
  • Galleryy Martinez Reyna (English & Humanities)
  • Keila Ramon (English)
  • Yadira Gamez (Psychology & English)
  • Angel Lopez  (English)
  • Helen Martinez (History)
  • Magge Nuñez (Psychology)

“Presenting at this national conference in Chicago allowed our CHSS students to present their original research with Humanities scholars all across the country,” said Crystal Guillory, assistant dean for CHSS. “For many of our students, this was their first time presenting at a conference and I could see the increased confidence in each student and their awareness of identifying themselves as true scholars.”

UHD’s departments of  Social Sciences; History, Humanities, and Languages; English Department; and the University Honors Program funded this student trip experience.

HERA‘s mission is to promote the: worldwide study, teaching and understanding of the humanities across a range of disciplines; support the application of the humanities to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting diverse heritage, traditions and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current condition of national life.
