AF Second Tuesday Cafe

The Secret Life of Research: Failures, Successes, and Surprising Applications

Jamie Thomas introduces Sunka Simon's cafe talk.

The Aydelotte Foundation’s popular second Tuesday lunchtime cafe series continues with monthly presentations by faculty members who will give us an insider’s view of their everyday research lives. Presenters from across the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences will walk us through their personal experiences of academic research in the lab, field, library and archive, revealing how they arrive at both small moments of understanding and large discoveries. Convened by Jamie Thomas (Linguistics), this series will share the successes, failures, accidents, comic moments, and unexpected revelations at the heart of what it is your colleagues do all day. These 30-minute talks are aimed at a general audience and include plenty of time for Q&A.
