Three graduate students from the department of textiles, merchandising and interiors presented research at the Southeast Graduate Consortium at the University of Tennessee on Feb. 21-22.

Students Beth Weigle, Fnu Ishani and Jeongah Shin presented their research project, “Self Expression and Fashion on Instagram,” which was conducted in faculty member Yoo-Kyoung Seock’s contemporary topics in merchandising course last semester.

The paper is also accepted for oral presentation at the annual conference of the American Collegiate Retail Association (ACRA), which will be held on April 4-6.

Seock and faculty member Jewon Lyu led the trip.

The consortium is held each year for the purpose of providing graduate students experience in presenting their research (work in-progress or finished thesis, dissertation or research from their class projects, etc.) to a regional group of peers.

Participating institutions were Auburn University, Florida State University, Louisiana State University, University of Kentucky, University of North Carolina-Greensboro and the University of Tennessee.
