Ohio University Libraries, Graduate Student Senate and Faculty Senate have partnered to host the Graduate Research Series, an event that gives graduate students the opportunity to share the process of their thesis or dissertation with the public. This event, held each semester, will highlight graduate students Francesca Lamoreux, Mohamed Hassan and Alexander Lovelace.

Lamoreux and Hassan present “Improving Diabetes Management Among Somali Americans: An Interprofessional Education Approach” from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Nov. 18 in the Friends of the Library Room, room 319 on the third floor of Alden Library.

Lovelace, a graduate student in History, will present “Enough Paper to Fill a Cathedral: Problems of Archival Research in the Writing of World War II History” from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 20 in the Friends of the Library Room.

Lamoreux and Hassan’s presentation will focus on the process of executing their project to create, implement and evaluate the effectiveness of an educational workshop for Somali immigrants caring for someone with diabetes living in Columbus, Ohio. Lovelace will present on the problems of utilizing resources from the World War II era because the war produced so many documents, but the archival information is spread throughout the United States and Europe. Lovelace will also discuss how to apply for and receive grant money, as he has applied for eight grants and received them all, which allowed him to travel to eight archives and photograph over 100,000 pages of documents.

Each semester University Libraries partners with the Graduate Student Senate and Faculty Senate to present the Graduate Research Series, allowing graduate students to share their experiences with their peers. It allows the presenters to gain experience and presentation skills while also providing knowledge to the audience, who want to learn more for their upcoming research.

Both presentations are free and open to the public. To request accessibility accommodations for this event, please contact Jen Harvey.
