This year’s conference will take place on April 16, 2024.
An annual sign of spring, the Scholarship and Creative Works Conference, offers the unique opportunity for hundreds of Adelphi University students to showcase their work as they present their research to fellow students, faculty, family members, alumni and visitors.
This annual celebration is a testament to the thriving academic environment and vibrant creative community experienced by students at Adelphi. We encourage all in our community to attend and explore the exceptional work being done by our students.
2024 Keynote Speaker
Facts vs. News: Navigating Truth in Today’s Media: A Conversation with Pulitzer-Prize Winning Journalist Nicholas Kristof
The keynote speaker for the 21st Adelphi Conference for Scholarship and Creative Works is American journalist and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, Nicholas Kristof. Mr. Kristof is also a political commentator, a regular CNN contributor, and an op-ed columnist for The New York Times. According to The Washington Post, Mr. Kristof “rewrote opinion journalism” with his emphasis on human rights abuses and social injustices, such as human trafficking and the Darfur conflict. Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa described Mr. Kristof as an “honorary African” for shining a spotlight on neglected conflicts in the continent.
This conversation is sponsored by the Bhisé Global Understanding Project.
What is New in 2024?
The Research and Creative Works on Colonialism in South Asia faculty panel discussion will begin the Scholarship and Creative Works Conference and include a complimentary breakfast. The panel discussion will be moderated by Assistant Professor David Pierce. The guest speakers are Richard Baker, PhD, Tandra Chakraborty, PhD, and Benjamin Serby, PhD.
A Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity
One day each spring, we come together as a community to celebrate student scholarship and creativity during the annual Adelphi University Scholarship and Creative Works Conference. Students get to share their hard work with their peers, faculty members and visitors. In the process, they build presentation and communication skills, learn to defend their work and engage with other academics, and, overall, develop an appreciation for scholarship and what it contributes to society. At the end of the day, we join our inspiring keynote speaker’s lecture and celebrate with our entire research community.
