POTSDAM-Madeline Phillips, a native of Keene, joined five other undergraduate students from the State University of New York College at Potsdam's Department of Modern Languages who attended the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), which took place at Ithaca College in Ithaca from March 31 through April 2.
The six students, all Spanish majors at SUNY Potsdam, who attended the conference were Phillips, junior Kat Williams, freshman Kristian Einstman, junior Andrew Bentley, junior Breanna Murphy and junior Robert Leabo.
Professors Dr. Oscar Sarmiento and Dr. Liliana Trevizan of the modern language department accompanied the students at NCUR.
Phillips detailed her research of an analysis of the Spanish literary work "Pedro Paramo," by Juan Rulfo.
The National Conference on Undergraduate Research, established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum.
