What: One or two members of the faculty will give a short presentation about research they are thinking of doing, are doing, or have recently done. Each speaker will have 30 minutes that they can parse however they like -- 20 minutes for presentation + 10 minutes for discussion; 30 minutes for discussion; etc. Presentations need not be "formal".
Why: We expect these sessions to be a way to inform our faculty about projects their colleagues are working on; a place to get ideas for how a project might be enhanced; a place to get ideas for research; a place to "practice" a talk; a place to find unexpected colleagues with whom to consult or work . . . and, of course, a place to have a stimulating lunch with your colleagues!
Who: YOU? Send your name and a title for the program you'd like to discuss at a Brown Bag to the RPC Chair. If more than two speakers volunteer for a date, the additional volunteers will be invited to talk at another session. The RPC will announce the slate of speakers a day or two before each session.
When: Noon to 1:00 pm. on the last Wednesday of the month.
Where: 428 Library.
Lunch: Bring your own.
