Schedule of presenters for 2023-24 now available!
Research Café brings together the entire graduate student community of Rutgers University-New Brunswick/Piscataway campus to strengthen scholarly literacy and interdisciplinary research communication by providing a platform for emerging researchers to connect, share their in-progress research or scholarship, and benefit from peer feedback in a friendly and low-stakes setting.
Research Café is a monthly, one-hour event to occur at rotating locations across the Rutgers New Brunswick/Piscataway campus (a Zoom option will be available, too). Each event will feature:
- Presentations (10-12 min. each) from 2-3 graduate students from across disciplinary areas ranging from engineering and biology to history and anthropology. The presentations in each cafe will be matched based on common themes and topics.
- A Q&A dialogue with peers and attendees.
- Conversational time over refreshments and snacks.
Graduate students in all disciplinary areas are invited to present. Previous Research Cafe presenters have covered topics ranging from feminist literature in the 17th century to antiretroviral therapy, so all research is welcome! We especially encourage research that explores topics related to equity, diversity, inclusion, and justice.
