SPARK Talks: Scholars Present About Research and Knowledge

SPARK logo

Cornell University Library is proud to host SPARK Talks – a series of five-minute lightning talks from Cornell graduate students and postdocs.

It's more important than ever for scholars to be able to clearly communicate their research whether to undergraduates in the classroom, prospective employers, funding agencies, or the general public. SPARK Talks are an opportunity to present research to a wider audience, to get feedback, and network. Scientists present to humanists, economists present to engineers – and everyone in between.

SPARK Talks are held once a year at different libraries. Each SPARK Talks has an interdisciplinary theme.

SPARK Talks 2017 will be held on Thursday, October 19 in Olin Library, Room 107, from 4-6pm.  The theme is Expansion.

Applications will be accepted until Monday, October 2, 2017.  Apply online
