K presenters as MSS (l-r): Aaron Schoenfeldt, Mariah Hennen, Krystal Wilson, and Callie Daniels-Howell

Four senior anthropology and sociology majors presented their Senior Individualized research at the annual conference of the Midwest Sociological Society (MSS) in Kansas City. Aaron Schoenfeldt, Mariah Hennen, Krystal Wilson, and Callie Daniels-Howell shared their work on sports and identity, re-conceptualizing study abroad, the culture of natural birth, and child hospice care and compassion, respectively. All four participated in regular paper and panel sessions along with sociology faculty, graduate students, and professionals from the Midwest and other parts of the country. “The conference was a very rewarding experience.” said Wilson. “I had the opportunity to present my work with individuals who were just as interested and dedicated in their sociological projects as I was. I also really enjoyed networking and connecting with graduate students discussing the various topics of our research and how we can take it to the public.”
