Convened by: Dr. Kate Hennessy

The Graduate Research Colloquium aims to be a forum for the building of community, for exposure to diversity of research work and methods, and for fostering understanding of disciplinary commonalities and differences. SIAT (School of Interactive Arts and Technology) is a strongly interdisciplinary program and the Research Colloquium aims to reflect this by exposing students to a broad range of approaches to research in the areas of Interactive Arts, Design and Technologies.

Through this colloquium series, presentations by SIAT faculty, SFU non-SIAT faculty, and outside visitors will be scheduled alongside presentations by students. Where possible, presentations by international visiting researchers will be integrated into the program. The emphasis is on a community of research which includes students. This colloquium is designed to engage students in discussion and debate on the utility, results and methods of research; on work-life balance; on health and wellbeing; to be introduced to one another and to the members of the broader research and industry community.

In Fall 2020, the colloquium takes place via Zoom every Wednesday, 12:30-2:20. Please join us synchronously if possible. The presentations will be recorded and posted online after the live session for those who can't join synchronously. 

Credit for the colloquium is based on attendance. Please leave a comment confirming your attendance each week via the Assignments in Canvas.

Biographies of the Speakers will be posted on the course website.
