Next KU research-sharing session announced

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 next event will be 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, 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 this event will be Gene Rankey, associate professor, geology; Joane Nagel, university distinguished professor, sociology; James Moreno, assistant professor, dance; Amanda Reichard, research director, Research & Training Center/Independent Living; Alice Bean, professor, physics & astronomy and Jeff Vitter, provost.

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