The Commons announces spring Red Hot Research dates

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

LAWRENCE — Red Hot Research returns this spring with six events for University of Kansas researchers. Red Hot Research is a regular Friday event, built of five short presentations from across the university to open the door for new ways of understanding work through discussion across perspectives.

The first event is scheduled for 4 p.m. Feb. 7 at The Commons and will focus on queer research.

In keeping with the goals of this series, 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.

Save the date for Red Hot Research sessions this spring!
