SOGSIM is excited to bring back the Lunchtime Research Forum! This semester we will be going virtual to accommodate our community near and far. The forum is a space for graduate students to share research or research ideas and receive feedback from peers. This is a great opportunity to not only share your research in a comfortable environment and get feedback, but to meet people across the school of music! Stay tuned for updates about Lunch Forum for next semester.
All forums will be held virtually over Zoom this semester on Wednesdays from 12:30-1:30.
Once the presenters are scheduled, the SOGSIM Lunchtime Research Forum Coordinator, Donna Janowski, will email RSVP links to attendees.
Further questions or comments about the Forum? Get in touch with Donna at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are hoping to have students from all departments participate! If you are interested in presenting, please visit the SOGSIM website and fill out a short Google form.
For the forums this year, we want to try something new! We are offering two presentation options:
Formal video—For students who have “fully formed” research, we would like to provide the opportunity to record a professional video. SOGSIM will take care of securing recording equipment and a quiet location to film high-quality videos. These videos will be viewed at the lunchtime forums, but can also be included on students’ professional platforms, websites, or job applications.
Sharing is caring—We would like to hear from students who have research ideas, but would like to get suggestions and feedback as they move forward. These presentations would not be previously recorded and students can come and share their drafts, research-in-progress or ideas.
