Research Talk Schedule

Primary tabs

The CWDS seminar series is centered around intellectual exchange and interaction, and the audience is encouraged to ask questions during presentations. The goal is a seminar that looks less like a lecture and more like a spirited discussion of issues raised in a relatively brief presentation of a paper or a research project.

Starting Wednesday, July 16th, all seminars will be held at 12:00 on Wednesdays in the atrium on the third floor of the Tioga Library Building. We will aim to conclude by 1:00. Coffee and treats will be provided during the seminar; attendees are also welcome to bring their lunch.

Presenters interested in speaking at an upcoming seminar can contact us at Interested in Speaking.

If you are interested in learning more about our seminar series please contact Derek Young.
