Where can you find lectures on topics like “Deadbeat Dinoflagellates: Symbiotic Cooperation Breaks Down After Coral Bleaching” and “African American Encounters With Soviet Central Asia,” all in one place? Penn Grad Talks has you covered.
This past February, some of Penn Arts & Sciences' top graduate students addressed these and many other topics to live and online audiences at the latest Penn Grad Talks. Students from the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and the professional masters' programs gave TED-style talks on their research, vying to win prizes of $500.
