WORKSHOP: New Ideas
Friday, November 22nd from 1-2pm in RLP 3.214F.
We hope that your semester is winding down nicely! Based on your request during our first meeting in September, R&E will host a new ideas workshop over light refreshments.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring, give, and/or receive answers to questions regarding choosing literature, operationalizing, and strengthening or troubleshooting methods and analysis for seminar papers and journal articles. For those who plan on bringing a question, be prepared to provide about 5-minutes’ worth of context and question to then receive about 5-minutes’ worth of feedback.
WORKSHOP: Thinking Race
December 5th from 11:00-12:30 in the Ethnography Lab RLP 3.214F.
We are happy to announce the second annual “Think Race” event. Think Race is a collaborative event for R&E members to present their work and get feedback. Each participant will have five minutes to present on new research ideas or emerging knowledge from a current project. At the end, R&E members will vote to choose one proposal to receive a $150 research award.
Please join us, even if you do not present, to support our participants, hear about their work, and share your feedback. Please let us know by 11/30/19 if would like to present your work. Intention to participate can be sent by email to Ilya Slavinski, firstname.lastname@example.org, Kara Takasaki, email@example.com. or Cassie Knaff, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to all participants, speakers, and attendees for a wonderful semester.
