Research presentations by OSU Honors College–CFTH summer interns Maia Insinga, Mahal Miles, and Mohammed Shakibnia.
Through a partnership between the OSU Honors College and the Center for the Humanities, these three outstanding OSU students were awarded summer internships to collaborate with faculty mentors on research projects in their chosen fields of study. In this symposium, they’ll give short presentations on their work.
Maia Insinga, a psychology major, will present her research on the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to prevent Seasonal Affective Disorder. With guidance from David Kerr, her faculty mentor from the School of Psychological Science, Insinga’s project will shape a SAD prevention program to be piloted on the OSU campus this fall.
Mahal Miles, a public health major, will discuss her work conducting and transcribing oral histories on the science and consequences of radiation exposure. Working with nuclear weapons historian Linda Richards of the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion, Miles is co-authoring two outreach articles and organizing public events in Oregon as part of a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Mohammed Shakibnia is majoring in both political science and philosophy. In this talk, he will discuss his project with Christopher Stout, of the School of Public Policy, focusing on the historic political campaigns of Muslim women during the 2018 U.S. elections. Their work investigates the ways race, gender, and religion might shape our judgments about political candidates.
Come learn more about our world from these exceptional young humanities scholars.
