Faculty & Graduate Student Brown Bag Presentations
Held on Fridays from 11am-noon in 348 PLC. Attendees are welcome to bring their lunch.
What are Brown Bag presentations? Short (15-25 minute), semi-formal presentations about research being conducted by members of our department. We started doing Brown Bags last year as an effort to give graduate students a chance to learn more about the research our faculty are working on. It also provides a great opportunity for graduate students who have already conducted research to share their process with other students, to get questions and comments about their methods and arguments, and to practice presenting their findings. We try to draw the connections between faculty and graduate student research as well. Finally, it is great for first year students to attend as you will see all the wonderful and interesting things that your fellow students are working on (while also being assured that you too can do it!), and get a chance to know more about professors in the department.
