SYRCE Symposium Announcement: May 17, 2022, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm, at GMC
SYRCE Symposium Spring 2022
Friday, May 13, 2022

Beam yourself back to the Roaring Twenties!

You are invited to join us at our annual SYRCE Symposium during Finals Week on Tuesday, May 17, between 10:30 and 12:30 in the Weill Lobby of the GMC. Enjoy exploring the fascinating period of the 1920s from several disciplinary perspectives!

We are excited to be back in person for our symposium after Covid pushed us to showcase our students' research and creative student projects online.

What is SYRCE? The acronym stands for “Second-Year Research and Creative Experience.” It is a unique learning community in our School of Arts & Humanities that encourages collaboration, research, and creativity. It offers a constellation of courses designed for second-year students to fulfill the requirements of General Education in area C2. This one-semester course offers students a multidisciplinary approach to a common topic based on the idea of the Time Machine, set to a different decade in the past for each academic year. This semester, our Time Machine was set to the 1920s! Students attended a series of lectures delivered by faculty members in American Multicultural Studies, Art History, Communication and Media Studies, and Chicano and Latino Studies. In addition, students worked together in smaller weekly seminars in which they debriefed the lectures, explored discipline-specific material, and workshopped research and creative projects focused on aspects related to the 1920s.

The SYRCE experience will culminate at the end of this semester in a symposium held in the Green Music Center where students will showcase their accomplishments: their creative research project, based on a topic of their choice related to the 1920s. Presentations will include, for example, a documentary on the rise of Jazz, a silent film on the master magician Houdini’s Hollywood Career, a presentation on African American fashion in the 1920s, a painting about the flappers' influence on modern women, a doll with a dress inspired by the 1920s Egyptomania, and handmade jewelry incorporating Art Deco and Egyptian styles expressed in 1920s jewelry.

Everybody is invited! 

Please join us and celebrate your peers' accomplishments who are part of our Second-Year Research and Creative Experience learning community.
Our SYRCE students, instructors, peer facilitators, and I look forward to seeing you on the 17th! 

All the best, Michaela Grobbel, PhD.
