Red Hot Graduate Research is intended to bring together graduate researchers from all disciplines. The format of these sessions is inspired by Red Hot Research, which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to a topic. Red Hot Graduate Research features five graduate 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, 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.

Presenters:
Bryce Heesacker, Visual Art, Interactive Art, Belief, Music Performance
Allison Lewis, African and African-American Studies, Black Studies, Music, Sound Studies, Afrocentricity
Amittia Parker, Social Welfare, Organizations, Spirituality, Substance Use
