Research Remix

As part of our continued effort to bring together a community of scholars from all disciplines at U-M, ArtsEngine is hosting Research Remix–a series of meet ups designed specifically for graduate student research exchange and networking. The format of these happy hour-style sessions, inspired by short slide-based presentations such as Pecha Kucha, will highlight three graduate researchers speaking for six minutes each on a different topic each month. Presentations will be preceded and followed by Q&A and social networking.

The goals of these sessions are to:

  • introduce graduate researchers to the work of their peers;
  • create social and networking connections;
  • address questions within current research using the perspectives of many disciplines; and
  • develop collaborative research teams as a result of overlapping interest and expertise.

We invite all U-M graduate students to join us at these events, which are intended to spark cross-disciplinary conversations, new perspectives, and connections between graduate students at U-M.

This year, we are proud to partner with Rackham North who will present workshops on associated content areas preceding our Research Remix events on Thursday afternoons. If you are interested in registering for the Rackham North workshop or Research Remix or both please click below!


Fall 2019 Series

Communicating & Engaging Across Disciplines
Thursday, September 19, 2019

  • Workshop – 3:00-4:30pm, Pierpont Commons East Room
  • Research Remix – 4:30-6:00pm, Duderstadt Center Gallery (Exhibit: Costumes)
Develop tools and skills to effectively communicate your passions, work, and research in a way that is accessible and meaningful to a broad audience. In this highly interactive session, join RELATE and Rackham North for a series of activities to explore communication skills with instruction and feedback from communications experts. Learn how to translate the value and relevance of work across disciplines to communicate your work in an elevator pitch style. 
 
Following the workshop, ArtsEngine invites you to attend Research Remix for an opportunity to meet and mingle with grad students and postdoctoral scholars from the North Campus schools and colleges in this happy hour style setting in the Duderstadt Center Gallery and to hear some of these communication/pitch techniques in action during short presentations from students about their projects and research. Participants are highly encouraged to attend both the workshop and the Research Remix session, but this is not required.

Developing Collaborative Practices & Skills
Thursday, October 17, 2019

  • Workshop – 3:00-4:30pm, Pierpont Commons East Room
  • Research Remix – 4:30-6:00pm, Duderstadt Center Gallery (Exhibit: Faculty Painting)

The shape of research, creative scholarship, and teaching is in flux. In order to thrive, students and practitioners need collaborative know-how. ArtsEngine and Rackham North invite you to a first-hand experience that engages deeply with the future of the research university and what it means for interdisciplinary collaboration in research and creation. In this workshop, students will develop collaborative know-how to forge new interdisciplinary collaborations or fine-tune existing ones. With an emphasis on practice, productive techniques, and reflection, the workshop activities and tools help collaborators to co-create effectively, communicate clearly, navigate conflict and group dynamics, think creatively about the mechanics of the collaborative process and have fun!

Following the workshop, ArtsEngine invites you to attend Research Remix for an opportunity to meet and mingle with grad students from the North Campus schools and colleges in this happy hour style setting in the Duderstadt Center Gallery and to hear short presentations from students who have engaged in interdisciplinary collaborative projects and research.

Exploring Alternative Methods of Translating Research
Thursday, November 21, 2019

  • Workshop – 3:00-4:30pm, Pierpont Commons, East Room
  • Research Remix – 4:30-6:00pm, Duderstadt Center Gallery (Exhibit: Ripple Effect)

Communication and dissemination of research often comes in the form of a paper, poster, or presentation. In this workshop, we will explore alternative methods of displaying research and arts research through media such as installations, performance, and other creative options. Join Dorsey Kauffman, artist and scientist from the University of Arizona who will discuss her project Ripple Effect on display November 11-December 3 in the Duderstadt Center Gallery.

Following the workshop, ArtsEngine invites you to attend Research Remix for an opportunity to meet and mingle with grad students from the North Campus schools and colleges in this happy hour style setting in the Duderstadt Center Gallery, experience Dorsey’s installation, and hear short presentations from students who have explored alternate methods of translating their projects and research.
