DemSemX-A Cross-Center Collaboration

About this event :

DemSemX – A Cross-Center Collaboration on May 29th, 2:00-4:00pm ET

DemSemX is a cross-center virtual collaboration among population research centers at 8 universities (Bowling Green, Cornell, Michigan, Minnesota, Penn State, Texas, UCLA and UW-Madison), designed to enhance scholarly interaction and graduate training across institutions. Together, we aim to take advantage of new virtual technologies and economies of scale to provide opportunities for scholarly interaction and training across our 8 centers. We especially hope to provide opportunities for students to present and get feedback on their work and to interact with other emerging and established scholars from these centers.

Join us this Friday, May 29, 2020, 2-4pm ET, for an inaugural DemSemX:

The first hour (2-3pm ET) will be a plenary session, where Wendy D. Manning and Elizabeth Wrigley-Field will each present and field questions on their new plans underway for conducting COVID-19 responsive research. Link to this session is here.

The second hour (3-4pm ET) will have breakout rooms for student presentations, hosted by each of the 8 universities. Two students per room will briefly present their research, and two faculty per room will provide feedback and guide discussion. You are welcome to join any of the breakout rooms (or move between them). Click here for the flyer with details and links to connect.
