Fall 2014 Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks

Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks

Last year, the IAUNRC organized and hosted the new Graduate Student Brown Bag Talks. We will be continuing this series in the coming year. These talks were given by graduate student that study the region, who will be discussing their research methods, recent work, and experiences. This is an excellent opportunity to interact with fellow students outside of class, receive feedback in an environment that is less formal than a conference, and learn from the experiences from other graduate students. Students from all departments are invited to attend.

Join us to discuss the speaker’s current work, research, and field experiences.
