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. This event provides great practice for Three Minute Thesis, job talks and conference presentations.

For speakers, SPARK Talks are an opportunity to present research to a wide audience, get instruction on presentation best-practices, and network. For audience members, SPARK Talks are an opportunity to hear impactful presentations about current Cornell research, to network, and to be inspired.  

SPARK Talks are held once a year at a Cornell library. Each SPARK Talks has an interdisciplinary theme.

SPARK Talks 2018 will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2018 in Mann Library, Room 160, from 4-6pm.  The theme is Diversity.

Applications for this event are now closed.
