Inside The Graduate Center: A Dissertation Showcase
May 13, 2019 – 6:30 pm, Elebash Recital Hall
Information for Potential Student Participants
Application Deadline – March 15, 2019
In its second year after a successful showcase last spring, this event gives GC doctoral students the opportunity to share the impact and importance of their dissertations with the public. Those who are defending this spring or who have already defended their dissertations in the 2018-2019 academic year are eligible to apply. This event is a valuable opportunity for students to hone their public presentation skills and frame their research for the public.
The event “Inside The Graduate Center: A Dissertation Showcase” will be open to the public, and colleagues from academia, publishing, and public policy will be invited. This is a unique opportunity for those beyond The Graduate Center to learn about the incredible research of GC students.
The showcase will take place in the Elebash Recital Hall from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and will feature around 15 student presentations. Each student will have three minutes and one slide, and presentations will run back-to-back.
Interim President Joy Connolly will introduce the evening, and we will end the festivities with a celebratory reception with an opportunity for networking.
Applications are due on March 15, 2019, by 5:00 p.m. and must be submitted via the application portal. The applications will be reviewed by a committee of GC faculty, staff, and students. Those students selected to participate will be notified via email by April 1.
Student participants in the May 13 showcase will receive coaching from GC faculty on how to present research in public forums and an honorarium of $250. After the event, students will receive professional videos of their presentations to use for their own career advancement.
