Public Event: Stream Sessions

  • Christine Rose Ackerley Simon Fraser University


The first Stream Session will be on Wednesday, March 29 from 2:00-4:00 pm at the conference room at the Burnaby Campus (8652). Stream Sessions are intended to be a colloquium where graduate students are invited to present their ideas to fellow students and faculty of the School of Communication. Topics for presentation can range from working papers to discussions of comprehensive or thesis readings to new theories and ideas still in the process of being formed. It’s an opportunity to workshop ideas among peers in a productive yet low-stakes environment while also receiving valuable feedback from students and faculty.

For more details, please see the attached PDF. 

The following students will be presenting work for the first Stream Sessions. Each presentation will run 10-15 minutes with 15 minutes for discussion afterward.
