Suhyun Choi, Art History and English double major from Seoul, South Korea

Suhyun traveled from Seoul National University as part of the University of Alberta Research Experience Internship Program to join Dr. Brandon Alakas (English). She is working with James Hudec to transcribe an unedited devotional text written in 1541: Richard Whitford’s Dyuerse and Holy Instrucyons. Written by a monk after the institution of monasticism had been suppressed, this text adapts monastic spirituality to new contexts in post-Reformation England.

Sam Jones, 4th year BA Psychology from Lethbridge, AB

Sam is partnered with Carissa Ferguson (3rd year BA Psychology) on a two-year project to explore issues surrounding disability and employment under Dr. Rebecca Purc-Stephenson. They will help develop a theoretical model and support for future vocational rehabilitation interventions, beginning with with a quantitative data review of studies published from 1980 to 2015 and ending with disseminating the results at national and international conferences!

Sam got involved in this project through her increased interest in health and applied social psychology. “I wanted to participate in the Research Assistant experience to help broaden my horizons and guide the type of graduate or professional schools I was interested in pursuing,” she says. “My role in the current projects related to disability and employment have allowed me to further explore social issues that I am passionate about and let me explore potential solutions to issues that I feel can make a difference to marginalized groups.”
