They presented on "Zombies as Social Commentary" and "Exposing Environmental Racism." They presented on "Memes for Lonely Teens" and "Food Waste at UC Berkeley." They presented on "The Toxic Legacy of Uranium Mining on the Navajo Nation," on "Courtship and Marriage in the Japanese American Internment Camps," on "Technology and Long-Distance Relationships," and on so much more.

On Monday, December 5, over 150 College Writing R4B students gave short talks about their final research projects for the semester to an audience of their peers, faculty, librarians, and other members of the Cal community at the fifth installation of College Writing Programs' Chiang Research Festival. We were grateful to have the Academic Innovation Studio host the event yet again.

The festival is held the Monday of RRR week each semester as a celebration of the students' work and as a chance for them to articulate their research before putting the finishing touches on their projects. We invite you to join us for the next iteration of the festival on Monday, May 1, which promises to be the largest one yet!
