Denver University Research and Performance Summit (DURAPS)

The fourth annual Denver University Research and Performance Summit on cross-disciplinary research examines the nature of disciplinary practices and the interdisciplinary practices that arise in the context of graduate student research. As a graduate body at the University of Denver, we want to celebrate interdisciplinary scholarship, which involves the process of answering complex questions and solving problems that cannot be addressed within the bounds of a discipline. This is also an invitation to showcase the wide-ranging multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary work of the graduate students to the University of Denver community.

We welcome submissions of traditional academic papers, reflections on learning via experiential practice such as clinical and internship work, posters, live performances and experimental formats. Your proposal should be existing research that you have already presented or will present at a conference in order to highlight your area of study to the greater DU community. However, you can also submit a proposal containing new research areas or reflections on current experiential practice.

Submissions deadline coming soon. As with past years, top papers, proposals and posters will be selected and will be awarded monetary prizes.

The Graduate Research and Performance Summit complements the mission of the Graduate Student Government fostering inclusivity within interdisciplinary research and dialogue among the DU community. We look forward to your participation in exemplifying graduate work at the University of Denver.
