Shut up & Write TuesdaysShut Up & Write Tuesdays is a global network for writers that offers committed, condensed time to write, and built-in feedback from peers.

It began as a movement for writers in San Francisco to structure their time and connect with other writers. The idea was simple: write for an hour, then grab coffee afterward to converse and build community. Academics embraced the practice, and the idea spread. Dr. Sioban O’Dwyer founded a virtual Shut Up & Write Tuesdays to provide the benefits of the traditional meetups for those who could not attend in-person. The event has a basic structure: Two 25-minute writing blocks, separated by 5-minute breaks. Afterward, attendees are encouraged to connect via Twitter, using #suwtna. Learn more about the SUWT team; read about tips for improving writing time; and find non-academic reads to inform practice at https://suwtuesdays.wordpress.com/

Roderick Ferguson, Professor of African American Studies and Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago, will deliver the annual Bill Tuttle Distinguished Lecture in American Studies at 4:00pm on Thursday, Oct. 25. The following morning, we invite you to join him in a Coffee @ The Commons conversation, on the topic of "Queer of Color Critique Meets Student Protest."

Coffee @ The Commons is intended to provide a venue for conversation between interested members of the community and a visiting scholar. It is a free event, open to KU faculty, staff, and students, as well as members of the larger Lawrence community. Those interested in attending should familiarize themselves with the work of the speaker beforehand, so that they are prepared to ask questions and prompt dialogue with the speaker and other attendees.

Red Hot ResearchRed Hot Research is intended to bring together scholars from all disciplines, in response to the call set forth by Bold Aspirations. The format of these sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. Each installment features faculty members, speaking for six minutes each. Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. We hope that through these sessions, faculty members will have a venue for cross-disciplinary partnering and exploration.

Pamela Sullivan, Geography & Atmospheric Science, Climate change, Critical Zone, Water Availability
Brian Atkinson, Biodiversity Institute
Keith Van de Riet, Architecture, Biomimicry, Camouflage, Behavioral Patterns, Regenerative Design
Dave Fowle, Geology/Environmental Studies Program
