Social Science Fair

Thank you to everyone who attended the First Annual Social Science Fair!

Congratulations to winner of the best poster competition, Stephanie Lin, for her poster “Have Your Cake and Make Her Eat It Too: Sabotaging Others While Maintaining Moral Self-Integrity.” She is a PhD student in the Stanford Graduate School of Business studying behavioral marketing. She will be awarded a $250 prize.

Congratulations also to our two runners up, Kun-Hsing Yu from Biomedical Informatics and Briana Evans from Anthropology for their posters “A Tale of Two Cities: Understanding the Differences in Medical Professionalism Between Two Chinese Cultural Contexts” and “Saving Face: International NGOs Using Pictures to End Noma.”

The Social Science Fair is an annual event sponsored by IRiSS and organized by the IRiSS Graduate Student Advisory Council to showcase social science research on campus.

All graduate students are invited to submit their posters on topics in economics, political science, psychology, sociology, communication, anthropology, and organizational behavior. Posters will be displayed on digital monitors throughout the room and are designed to appeal to a wide audience from different fields. We are happy to accept work at all stages of the research process, including preliminary results, second-year papers, dissertation prospectuses, and job market papers. All posters will be available online after the event, and attendees will be invited to vote on a grand prize of $250 for the best poster. Students, faculty members, and staff from all departments are invited to attend. Deadline to sign up is May 1st.
