The University of Houston Libraries will host a series of lightning talks for graduate students in the social sciences next spring.img_6324-2350798414-O

UH graduate students are encouraged to discuss their thesis or dissertation research in a 5-10 minute presentation. Researchers will have the opportunity to field questions from the audience afterward. The talks are free and open to the public.

As a new program at the UH Libraries, the Social Sciences Lightning Talks are designed to give students an opportunity to apply public speaking and networking skills; promote an exchange of ideas amongst scholarly thinkers; and highlight the prolific research being conducted at the University of Houston.

Graduate students who are interested in participating in the Social Sciences Lightning Talks may register online by November 15. Presentation dates are set for February 11, March 25 and April 15. All talks are scheduled from noon to 2:00 p.m.

For more information, students may contact their subject librarians.
