Designing a Research Poster for the Humanities: Home

This guide will help students design and create a research poster suitable for showcasing their work and research in the humanities disciplines.


Welcome to the "Designing a Research Poster for the Humanities" Study Guide. 

It is my hope that this Guide provides you with clear instruction about how to begin creating a successful research poster that could be used in student research conferences, in class projects, and in presentations to the public. 

This Guide should also answer basic questions about what design styles might work best to display your research and what should generally be included on a research poster. 

On this home page, I have included as an example a research poster I completed as a graduate student studying Library Science. 

  • What do you like about this poster? What don't you like?
  • How well does this poster convey information?
  • What is the ratio of text to images in this particular poster?
  • What do you think of the fonts that were used?

These are just some of the questions you should consider when designing a research poster. Now let's get started!
