Poster Presentations (Undergraduate, Upper Level)

The following assignment was used in an capstone course for the Interdisciplinary Studies major in the College of Social Science at MSU. Final posters were presented in a public location on campus (see images below).

For your final course project, each group must construct an interdisciplinary explanation of a specific genocide, using factors from your disciplinary cognates. These factors can be the ones you chose for your disicplinary analysis, or they can be new factors. 

Posters must be uploaded in this Dropbox by April 23rd by 11:59pm.

The poster must be created based on the dimensions of the template linked in this module. Be sure to meet the following requirements for the layout of the poster:

  • There must be an introduction to the issue/event.
  • At least one disciplinary factor must be clearly identified for each member of the group (Anthropology, Sociology, Economics, etc).
  • An interdisciplinary explanation that incorporates ALL disciplinary factors must be presented.
  • Posters are a visual form of presentation, and should not be too text heavy.
  • The posters should be professional, with correct grammar, spelling, and a neat appearance.
  • Posters should include at least one image and one chart or figure with data
  • References should be included on the poster

Your posters will be evaluated using the following rubric:

Poster: Group (90 points):

  • Disciplinary factor identified for each group member: 10
  • Relevance of disciplinary factor to genocide under study: 20
  • Interdisciplinary explanation, combining all factors: 25

  • Grammar/spelling: 10
  • At least five scholarly references: 10
