KU to present first Research Sharing Session

LAWRENCE — As a part of a continued effort to bring together University of Kansas scholars from all disciplines, and in response to the call set forth by Bold Aspirations, KU's strategic plan, The Commons presents a new series for faculty research sharing. The format of these Research Sharing Sessions is inspired by Pecha Kucha,  which features short, slide-based talks that introduce audiences to an idea.

The first event will be 4 p.m. Sept. 28 at The Commons, Spooner Hall.
These sessions will feature six faculty members, speaking for six minutes each. Audience members are encouraged to connect with the speakers (and one another) during breaks. The Commons hopes that faculty members will find in these sessions a venue for cross-disciplinary partnering and exploration.

Presenting faculty for the first event will be Kris Ercums, assistant curator, Spencer Museum of Art; Ludwin Molina, assistant professor, psychology; Sara Gregg, assistant professor, history; Ben Rosenthal, assistant professor, visual art; Kirsten Jensen, associate professor ecology and evolutionary biology, and Jay Johnson, assistant professor, geography.

All faculty are invited. See more information at The Commons.
