Researching Music & Disaster?

Grad­u­ate Stu­dents and Post­docs: Work­ing on a project, paper or the­sis that deals with dis­as­ter? Look­ing for oppor­tu­ni­ties to present your research and meet schol­ars out­side your dis­ci­pline? Need feed­back on your pre­sen­ta­tion style?  Sub­mit a pro­posal for Schol­ars’ Stu­dio: Dis­as­ter Research @the Com­mons, which will be held Thurs­day, Feb­ru­ary 21st from 4–5:30pm on the ground floor of Allen Library South.

Schol­ars’ Stu­dio, hosted by the UW Libraries Research Com­mons and the Grad­u­ate School, will fea­ture a series of short pre­sen­ta­tions (5 min­utes each) given by grad­u­ate stu­dents doing research on top­ics related to the theme “cit­i­zen”. We’re look­ing for grad stu­dents work­ing in a range of dis­ci­plines: health sci­ences, engi­neer­ing, human­i­ties, envi­ron­men­tal sci­ences, polit­i­cal sci­ence, busi­ness, edu­ca­tion, his­tory, urban plan­ning, tech­nol­ogy, etc.  Sam­ple topic areas could include:

  • Nat­ural Disaster
  • Emer­gency Management
  • Men­tal Health Inter­ven­tion post-disaster
  • Inter­na­tional Crises and Pub­lic Policy
  • Dis­as­ters shap­ing History
  • Social Media and Emer­gency Relief
  • Art and Lit­er­a­ture in response to disaster

This will be a fun, infor­mal event that will allow grad stu­dents to share their research across dis­ci­plines, make con­nec­tions, build pro­fes­sional devel­op­ment skills and get pre­sen­ta­tion feed­back.  This event will be open to all UW stu­dents, fac­ulty and staff.   Learn more and sub­mit a short pro­posal for a 5-minute TED-style light­ning talk at:
