The second Research Meet & Greet event this autumn quarter will take place on November 5, 3:30-5:30 pm at the John T. Richardson Library, Idea Lab 2, Room 207. This series of events is conceived as an opportunity for DePaul University faculty and staff to come together and share and learn about research and creative projects going on across the University.
The November 5 event will feature a presentation by Dr. Kyle A. Grice from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry entitled “Trying to Solve Big Problems Caused by Small Molecules – CO2 Reduction Research with DePaul Students.” During the lightning talk session, the attendees will have an opportunity to hear about the projects conducted by two DePaul faculty members:
Dr. Rachel L. S. Harper (College of Education) will be reporting on the recent projects as well as her current plans with her artist’s research project, “Seen + Heard,” which advocates for the cultural works and lives of people ages 0-12.
Dr. Jessica Jerome (College of Science and Health) will share information about her research projects that focuses on Chicago’s free medical clinics that were started by community groups in the late 1960s and shut down by the City of Chicago a few years later. The research uses archival documents to trace the history of the clinics, and their commitment to a right to health.
There is still time to sign up for the lightning talk on November 5. Alternatively, just show up and grab the mic during the open mic session. We look forward to seeing you at the event!
