Images of Research Competition 2023

University of Alberta graduate students made 89 submissions to the 2023 Images of Research Competition. The submissions highlighted that graduate student research at U of A happens in places both near and far, urban and rural, real and virtual: demonstrating that research knows no boundaries. The research demonstrated the breadth and creativity of students' brilliance by investigating the complexity of cultural identities, nanoparticle engineering, and how garbage might be reimagined as art, to name only a few. A multi-disciplinary five-person adjudication committee reviewed all submissions and selected winners. Additionally, the community voted for the People's Choice Award, and the winning image garnered 193 out of 1394 votes. After the Images of Research exhibition, the winning and semifinalist images are available in ERA (the University of Alberta’s digital repository).

    Picture a student preparing for an exam with far too many books to read that are scattered across various libraries on campus. Even worse, none of the books are available for borrowing, so the student has to go back and forth between libraries to read them. Some books are so essential that...

    In the summer of 2022, I traveled to Türkiye, my country of origin, for a four-month ethnographic research project on the rise of Sufi -mystical Islamic- practices among mainly young, middle-class women of Turkish origin. Throughout my fieldwork, I repeatedly asked my interlocutors the question,...

    Brushing your teeth is a simple ritual that you do every day. However, this simple ritual isn't always available for older adults in the hospital, especially if they are not capable of brushing their own teeth. My research explores hospitalized older adults' oral care experiences. Through...

    My research is situated in the processing and transforming of my family archives – simultaneously treasured collections and hoarded trash – to wrestle with the phenomenon of object attachment as a survival mechanism. Through an autoethnographic lens, I am exploring notions of human attachment to...

    In Canada, there is growing recognition of knowledge translation: the dissemination of research results towards application/utilization. Currently, knowledge translation outputs are defined by journal articles or academic conferences. Both may pose barriers for non-academics or community members...

    Packaging or content, which is more important. In our society we perceive the content as having value and the package it came in as having none. My studio practice investigates this perception. Unfolding discarded packaging and unpacking its content, I am left with a shell, a skin, a vessel....

    Here, I’ve illustrated myself constructing a nanodevice called a “DNAzyme Walker” on the surface of a gold nanoparticle. The astronaut suit represents how, like astronauts who journey to outer space thousands of kilometers away in rockets, we navigate within nanospace, which is millions of times...
