This year, eight Spanish students presented their work, from classes ranging from Food in Spanish American Culture & History (Span 566), Spanish America Today (Span 773), Mapping Madrid in the Silver Age (Span 735), and even for capstone projects in International Studies. Below are the videos created by our #KStateSpanish students to showcase their research. A conversation with the presenters to discuss their projects will be facilitated through a live roundtable on April 30th from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm via Zoom. Questions about the video presentations can be entered in this document by April 28th. We invite you to “visit” with our students and share your questions.

We’re so proud of our Spanish students and their hard work in preparing to share their research – MUCHAS GRACIAS y FELICIDADES!
We hope to see you at the live roundtable on April 30th from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm via Zoom. Remember to post your questions about the video presentations on this document by April 28th.
If you’re a student who will be working on a research project next year (2021-22), talk to your professor about presenting your work at Initials in April 2022. And even if you aren’t quite at the research stage of your coursework yet, join us online to learn about the exciting possibilities for research in both our undergraduate and graduate courses.
