Hi everybody. Now is the time to start talking about ideas for the Honors conference. We need a name and a theme to start. We’ll also need to decide on format.
I also wonder if anybody is interested in making a video or some other multimedia project that works with the theme.
To start, I’m listing the titles of all your theses. Use the comments section to post ideas about what themes might bring all these together–and to suggest titles for the conference.
