NEDtalks is a bi-annual research forum hosted by the Ned McWherter Library.
We are looking for UofM professors (faculty, instructors) of any discipline to present short, engaging, entertaining 15-minute presentations in the TEDtalks style. Past speakers have engaged topics both diverse and fascinating, including presentations on blackface in opera, the scholarly path of a research chemist, whiteness in the Bible, feminist strategies used by “booby streamers” in the online gaming world, and supermassive black holes. We’d love to know what makes you excited about what you are researching, and to carry your audience into that thrill.
NEDtalks will take place Wednesday, November 13, and Thursday, November 14, 2019, 3-5 PM in the 2nd Floor Commons Area.
