FIREtalks are on hiatus until September 2017.
|Collaborate, network, and explore ideas across conventional disciplinary boundaries. Join us for FIREtalks, an interdisciplinary discussion forum run by graduate students for graduate students.
What is a FIREtalk?
A FIREtalk (Facilitated Interdisciplinary Research Exchange) is a mix of brief presentations, activities, and discussion, all relating to a common theme. FIREtalks are a great opportunity to:
Want to participate?
RECORD: Come to the CiTR radio station with one of our FIREtalks facilitators and record a five-minute presentation of your research topic.
ATTEND: Any graduate student can attend a FIREtalk! You do not need to submit a presentation to attend a FIREtalk and participate in the discussions. Register in advance, or simply show up!
Those who present, record, or attend a FIREtalk are eligible for an Open Badge signifying their accomplishment. Find out more on the Open Badges page.
FIREtalks are on currently on vacation. Check back in August for a list of next year's FIREtalks.
