TAC Talks 2019: The Event

An evening celebrating UWT graduate student research: TAC Talks, a series of 5-minute lightning talks, followed by a reception

TAC Talks - Spring 2019 Details

TAC Talks are polished, 5-minute snapshot talks presented by UW Tacoma graduate students across a range of research and professional interests.  Each talk is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation, and there is opportunity for Q&A from the audience.

The theme this year is Breaching Borders, broadly interpretable. These borders might be literal borders or barriers, these can be academic explorations into uncharted territories, these can be transgressions, these can be pushing past the status quo....

This year, hear talks about Oppressed Group Behavior, Privacy & Machine Learning, Climate Change & Libraries, Gender Politics, Game-Based Learning, and more!
