The Graduate Student Brown Bag Talk Series is a new discussion series organized and hosted by the IAUNRC that premiered this fall. In these series of brown bag talks, graduate students that study the region from a variety of disciplines discuss their research, the projects they are working on, and their field experiences. The series is designed to give an opportunity for graduate students to share their work with their peers in an informal setting, though all are welcome.
