Scholars' Studio: Pacific Northwest Research @the Commons
Friday, April 19th 4-5:30 PM
Allen Library South, Research Commons, Presentation Place
Preparing for a conference or scholarly presentation and looking for ideas on how to present your research? Working on a project, paper or thesis that deals with Pacific Northwest issues? Interested in meeting scholars outside your discipline? Join us for Scholars’ Studio!
Scholars’ Studio is a fun, informal event that features 10 rapid-fire ignite-style presentations (5 minutes each) given by graduate students and postdocs doing research on topics related to an interdisciplinary theme. Hosted by the UW Libraries Research Commons and The Graduate School, Scholars' Studio gives students the opportunity to share their research across disciplines, make connections and build presentation skills.
Talks will be followed by a Q&A with presenters, reception (snacks and beverages) and conversation. This event is open to all UW students, faculty and staff, family and friends, so please encourage others to attend!
