Books & Bagels: Conversations on Interdisciplinary Research is a one-hour monthly lunch time program hosted by the Graduate Student Association (GSA) and the Graduate College. The program started in 2012 and since has hosted more than 100 Drexel speakers including graduate students, alumni, and undergraduate students doing research from across all of Drexel’s colleges and schools.
The program features 2-3 current graduate students who present a brief 15-20 minute overview of their research project(s) and talk about their graduate experiences in an interdisciplinary context touching on the challenges, benefits, successes, and implications of their work. The presentations are then followed by audience Q&A and discussion led by a faculty moderator.
The goals of the Books & Bagels program are for attendees to hear about what graduate students across the University are accomplishing; to challenge speakers and attendees to think about problem solving and research in new ways; and to spark conversation and collaboration among peers across different disciplines.
