This publication reports on college research projects in the humanities and the social sciences which were supported by the Consortium On Research Training (CORT). The two major objectives of CORT are to provide college students with research training and to support significant research. The research reports included in this volume were selected to illustrate the wide range of subject matter studied by CORT supported research. A number of the projects pursue a systematic inquiry into the histories and characteristics of their own colleges and their immediate communities. Topics researched include: academic responsibility with regard to research, the dominance of love in Racine's tragedies, British and American novels treating the bull fight published since "The Sun Also Rises", how the regional backgrounds of students affect their learning of German, the effect that counselors have on Black American college freshman, economics of poverty in South Carolina, and power problems of the Black power movement. The publication concludes with a list of funded research efforts completed, as well as those in progress. (Author/RM)
