Red Hot Research

Red Hot Research

As a part of our continued effort to bring together scholars from all disciplines, The Commons presents the Research Sharing Sessions--a series designed specifically for research exchange. The format of these sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to an idea.

The goals of these sessions are:

- To introduce KU Researchers to the work of their colleagues
- To address questions within current research using the perspectives of many disciplines
- To develop collaborative research teams as a result of overlapping interest & expertise

We invite all KU Researchers to join the conversation.

Red Hot Research, Student Event
4:00-5:00pm CST Friday, March 5, 2021 Online
Hosted in partnership with the Integrated Arts Research Initiative at the Spencer Museum of Art and the KU Blockchain Institute

Red Hot Research brings together researchers from all disciplines. The format of these sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. This session features five student researchers speaking for six minutes each about their interest in Blockchain Research. Through this session, we hope to build a conversation across disciplines that explores blockchain technology and its potential, while building a network across interested researchers at KU.

In 2022-2023, the Spencer Museum of Art's Integrated Arts Research Initiative (IARI) will devote its inquiry to the exploration of blockchain and its uses in contemporary art production.

Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and each other) during breaks. We hope that through these sessions, graduate students will have an opportunity for cross-disciplinary discourse that will in turn give new perspectives on their work and provide a forum for future work in their chosen research fields.

In conjunction with this event, the Spencer Museum of Art has curated a temporary exhibition of artwork in the Brosseau Center for Learning, in conversation with ideas of blockchain. The works originate from across the globe and range from 2334 BCE to 2012. This exhibition will be on view February 20-March 15. Link to schedule a museum visit.

WORKING GROUPS

Health Humanities and Arts Research Collaborative

Building collaborations around Health and Well-being, the Health Humanities and Arts Research Collaborative is based out of The Commons, directed by Emily Ryan (eryan@ku.edu). The initiative is a collaboration by Tamara Falicov, Associate Dean for Research, Arts and Humanities, College Dean’s office; Katie Rhine, Geography & Atmospheric Science and African & African-American Studies; and Teri Kennedy, Associate Dean, Interprofessional Practice, Education, Policy, and Research, KU School of Nursing, KU Medical Center.

Goals:

  • Create connections across professionals and among researchers around affinities within the realm of health and wellness;
  • Connect researchers to funding opportunities around health and wellness; and
  • Offer a platform for collaboration around existing and emerging health-related challenges.
