But Is It Really Research?: Undergraduate Anxieties in the Humanities
Abstract: This paper examines the anxieties of undergraduate research in the humanities by tracing the development of an independent project of undergraduate research from classroom to research poster to scholarly publication. To address these anxieties, we advance notions of sponsorship, authority and genre as key terms for promoting successful outcomes.
