Meet your colleagues at the School for the Contemporary Arts in this informal weekly series sharing the latest arts-based research by SCA faculty, graduate students and staff.
Ever wondered what everyone's doing when they're not at school? Bring a brown bag lunch and get to know a different side of your professors, TA's, and SCA support team.
Hear about international research, award-winning projects, and some of our SCA community's intriguing other lives as stilt-walking instructors, underground record store operators, digital horn players and (much) more.
Each twenty minute presentation will be followed by an open conversation where you can ask all your most probing questions.
Everyone is welcome. Bring your lunch or your post-lunch coffee.
The Friday Colloquium is a series of presentations and conversations on Friday afternoons where faculty, staff and current graduate students share their research in short 20 minute presentations. The goal of the series is to open a dialogue and to foster a better understanding of the research interests of faculty, students and staff.
