Red Hot Research No. 66: Climate, Culture, Communication

4:00-5:30pm Friday, September 24, 2021 The Commons

Red Hot Research is intended to bring together scholars from all disciplines, to reveal overlaps and connections across areas of interesting and methodological approaches. 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 researchers, 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, the University will have a venue for cross-disciplinary partnering and exploration. 

COVID Modifications:
In an effort to be responsive to changing health/safety protocol, Red Hot Research will be held in the main space of The Commons, with limited seating. Refreshments will be provided after the presentations in the Weaver Courtyard, outside.
