Undergraduate students present at the Undergraduate Research Experience Festival 2017

Ugre 2017

The Undergraduate Research Experience Festival is annual celebration for all undergraduates to showcase their work and research to fellow students and staff.

Earlier this month Karen Fox and Daisy Bendall, two classics undergraduates, joined a number of talented and passionate undergraduate researchers from across the Faculty to present at the annual celebration. 

Karen's talk focused on how characters within Ovid’s Metamorphoses display control and investigated whether those who do are capable of wielding it. Daisy's research explores different methods that can be used to establish an estimate population of an ancient city, and how its fluctuations reflect upon the social and economic structure(s).

After the five-minute research talks, both Karen and Daisy chatted to staff and students about their research and experience of being undergraduate researchers at the University.

The Undergraduate Research Experience (UGRE) is now in it's seventh year and continues to be a fantastic celebration of the achievements of our undergraduate researchers. Find out more about the event on Facebook.
