This year, in addition to the campuswide Grad Slam competition, the Graduate Division will sponsor a separate Grad Slam event for Master’s and doctoral students who are conducting original research in the humanities and social sciences (HSS), including those in professional schools who are doing HSS research.
This public speaking event will enable HSS graduate students to practice communicating their research to a broad audience, convey why their research matters, and prepare — if they so choose — to participate in the campuswide Grad Slam competition. To take part in this event, HSS graduate students craft compelling three-minute narratives about their research and present these narratives to a friendly, supportive audience.
Competitors must pre-register by January 26.
All competitors are eligible to win one of seven Humanities & Social Sciences Communication Prizes,
ranging from $300 (first place) to $200 (second place) to $100 for five honorable mentions.
