Present your research the way you want at Lunch & Learn!

In academia, we are constantly called upon to present our research in ​different ways, to different audiences, for different purposes: 20 minutes for this conference, 60 minutes for that job talk, 3 minutes for Grad Slam.

But what if you had the opportunity to talk about your research any way you wanted? What is it about your research that motivates you to get up every morning (even on weekends) and go in to the lab, the library, or your field site? At Lunch & Learn, we want to know!

Lunch & Learn is an informal lunch seminar series that features 15-minute talks by two different graduate students – one from a STEM discipline (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and one from a SHEF discipline (Social Science, Humanities, Education, and Fine Arts). However, unlike traditional seminars and lectures, the series encourages ​grad students to communicate about their research in whatever way they feel most comfortable, welcoming anything from PowerPoint slides to fireside chats to hands-on demonstrations.

We are currently seeking speakers for ​Summer 2017 through Spring 2018, and we want to hear ​from you!

Need inspiration or want to find out more? Check out the Lunch & Learn website for more information and to learn about ​some of our awesome past presenters.
