Attention University of Illinois graduate students! You're engaged in fascinating, ground-breaking research. Your archival work, ethnographies, and textual analysis are transformative. You can analyze a data set like nobody's business.
You design, choreograph, sculpt, compose, and create works that can change the world. But can you get a general audience interested and excited about what you do in only 3 minutes?
That's the challenge offered by Research Live! Now in its sixth edition, Research Live! asks graduate students from all disciplines to celebrate their work and hone their presentation skills by giving a compelling 3-minute research talk.
Check out videos from our past competitions on Media Space.
