Red Hot Research No. 54: Research & Policy

4:00-5:30pm Friday, March 22, 2019 The Commons

Red Hot Research is intended to bring together scholars from all disciplines, around common themes. 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 faculty members, 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, faculty members will have a venue for cross-disciplinary partnering and exploration.
