Students hailing from a number of departments across Emory College came together to present their work in our tenth-annual REALC Undergraduate Student Research Symposium! As in previous years, students were invited to submit abstracts outlining their research on the languages, cultures, societies, or politics of Russian and Eastern Europe, or Central and East Asia.
