Schol­ars’ Stu­dio Dead­line Approach­ing:

Grad­u­ate stu­dents and post­docs! Work­ing on a “dis­as­ter” related research project?  Sub­mit a pro­posal to present at Schol­ars’ Stu­dio: Dis­as­ter Research @the Com­mons on Feb­ru­ary 21st, 4–5:30pm. Schol­ars’ Stu­dio is a fun, infor­mal event that fea­tures rapid-fire light­ning talk pre­sen­ta­tions (5 min­utes each) given by grad­u­ate stu­dents and post­docs on an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary theme. This quarter’s theme is “dis­as­ter.” The talks are a great way to get feed­back on your pre­sen­ta­tion style and see what oth­ers are doing on campus!

Sub­mis­sions for pro­pos­als are due on Jan­u­ary 30th. The dead­line is approach­ing quickly. If you would like to sub­mit a light­ning talk please go here to find out more.
