Interdisciplinary Research Series

EXPLORE THE RESEARCH AND SCHOLARSHIP HAPPENING AT ARKANSAS TECH. 

JOIN US FOR A SERIES OF FACULTY PRESENTATIONS AND WORKSHOPS FROM ACROSS DISCIPLINES.  

 

call for proposals: SPRING 2021

 

Presentations might be drawn on published research, research under preparation for publicaiton, scholarship that has been or will be presented at a professional conference, creative work displayed or performed for the public, etc. You should prepare an abstract of ~250 words outlining the content, argument, data, narrative, etc. that you'll cover in a 30-40 minute presentation (with Q&A to follow). 

Presentations in Fall 2020 will take place over WebEx. The format of IRS presentations in the Spring is, like virtually everything, dependent on the tides of the pandemic, but we hope to return to an in-person format with receptions and snacks following.

Send abstracts (or questions) to Arwen Taylor at ataylor52@atu.edu .

 

interdisciplinary Research SEries Scholarly Writing Program

The Interdisciplinary Research Series (IRS) writing group  would like to invite all scholars, especially new faculty, to join us for 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. Socially distaned meeting details are forthcoming. 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.
