The Commons announces Red Hot Research participants

Friday, August 29, 2014

LAWRENCE — The third year of Red Hot Research presentations will kick off Friday, Sept. 5, at The Commons. In past years, researchers from 40 departments have shared 71 presentations about their current research pursuits. In keeping with the purpose of the event, presenters are asked to consider how other disciplinary perspectives could contribute to their research; the likely next steps for the research; and challenges that they face in conducting the research. In turn, audience members are asked to, from their own perspectives, offer insights, questions and ideas.

An additional goal of these sessions is to develop collaborative research teams as a result of overlapping interest and expertise.

This fall, the following faculty members will present as a part of Red Hot Research:
