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:
