WIDEN seeking presenters and guest curators

Dear friends of WIDEN,

WIDEN at the U of T St. George campus is gearing up for a new season of cross-disciplinary workshops!

We’re currently looking for grad students from the U of T community and beyond who are interested in showcasing their research in an interdisciplinary setting. All topics and disciplines are welcome. If you’re interested in speaking at one of our events, or know someone who might be, please get in touch!

WIDEN is also looking for guest curators. Do you have an idea for a workshop theme or venue? Let us know—we’ll be more than happy to plan it with you.

WIDEN (Workshops for Inter-Discipline Exchange and Novelty) brings together people from different fields to speak on a common theme. The workshops foster community and celebrate ingenuity by breaking down disciplinary walls. Each two-hour event features three short presentations by graduate students working in different disciplines, followed by a half-hour of discussion in a casual but lively setting. Delivering a WIDEN presentation is a great opportunity to prepare a conference talk or revisit old research, to share your work with an interdisciplinary audience, and to build intellectual and social connections across the university.

We look forward to hearing from you!
