Interdisciplinary Red Hot Research sessions return for spring 2024 semester

LAWRENCE — The Commons at the University of Kansas will host Red Hot Research sessions throughout March and April 2024, including three themed sessions with faculty presenters, one graduate student session and two collaborative sessions co-hosted by internal, interdisciplinary awards.

Red Hot Research, which began in fall 2012, is a curated event that brings together scholars across areas of study through short, six-minute presentations. Speakers introduce an idea from their research, and attendees offer questions as collaborative opportunities emerge across disciplines.

The first session of the semester will take place at 4 p.m. March 1 in Watson Library – 3 West.

Speakers include:

  • Kelly Matsunaga, Thomas N. Taylor Assistant Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and assistant curator at the KU Biodiversity Institute
  • Poppy DeltaDawn, assistant professor of visual art
  • Tzu-Chieh Kurt Hong, assistant professor of architecture
  • Emily Casey, Hall Assistant Professor of American Art & Culture

The emcee will be Kate Meyer, curator, Spencer Museum of Art.
