Interdisciplinary Research Series

 JOIN US FOR A SERIES OF FACULTY PRESENTATIONS AND WORKSHOPS FROM ACROSS DISCIPLINES.  EXPLORE THE RESEARCH AND SCHOLARSHIP HAPPENING AT ARKANSAS TECH.
NEW: interdisciplinary Research SEries Scholarly Writing Program

In an effort to promote and facilitate research around campus, the Interdisciplinary Research Series (IRS) is launching a university-wide writing group. We would like to invite all scholars, and especially new faculty, to join us.  We are a group of scholars who provide mutual support and encouragement for completing scholarly writing projects.  Participation is also a wonderful way to meet scholars from other departments and to be exposed to research in areas very different from your own specialty. We meet at the end of each month, starting January. Please contact Dr. Jordan Thibodeaux (jthibodeaux@atu.edu), Director of the IRS Scholarly Writing Program, or any member of the IRS, for more information or to be added to the email list.
