CURA Seminars

Each semester a CURA Discussion Seminar is held where CURA fellows come together for an active discussion of research papers that were submitted to a current CIRS research project. The papers are shared in advance of the seminar, and CURA fellows attend prepared to critique the papers that they have read. At a later stage, selected CURA fellows attend a CIRS scholarly research working group to share fellows' feedback with the paper authors.

CURA Discussion Seminars provide students an opportunity to develop their analytical and critical skills, and a forum to communicate their insights to professional scholars in the field, while engaging them in current CIRS research endeavors.
