Katie Conlon, a junior majoring in HTC History, was awarded first place in the Creative Arts and Humanities category at the International Student Union’s International Research Symposium on February 20.

Conlon presented on her research about the Cham Muslim minority in Cambodia, which she conducted during summer 2014 through LJC 3910: Externship in Law, Justice & Culture. In her research, she analyzed the significance of the prosecution of genocide at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia and its potential to alter or challenge the predominant historical narrative of the Khmer Rouge regime of the late 1970s.

Five students presented in Conlon’s category and more than 20 students presented at the symposium.

Conlon is a certificate student in Law, Justice & Culture and president of Students for Law, Justice & Culture.
