The ongoing Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games has inspired the theme for an upcoming Research Café hosted by Brock’s Faculty of Graduate Studies.
Graduate students will have the opportunity to present their research on sports and athletics during the event, which is set to take place Thursday, Oct. 6 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Rankin Family Pavilion. The deadline to register as a presenter is Friday, Sept. 2.
Research Cafés aim to provide a supportive and casual environment for students to showcase their work to the graduate community and beyond. The events are free and open to the Brock community.
Presenters can link their research to sport or athletics directly, or they can connect their work to the industries that align with those fields of study. For example, research around sustainability, organizational culture, child and youth studies, history, communication, visual arts, tourism, politics and economics have many touch points and often express sport in unique ways.
There are limited oral presentation slots. Graduate Studies will offer support for students looking to polish their presentation skills and encourages them to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Students can stay up to date on the event through the Research Café web page. Those looking to attend October’s café will be able to register on the Graduate Studies website in early September.
