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.


Interested in finding collaborators across campus? We can help! Email to build your group, or share information on your existing workgroup for others to see.
