Presenters Needed for Skywalk Lecture Series

The Skywalk Lecture Series has been a lunchtime tradition since 1990. We are currently looking for vibrant researchers, faculty, staff and grad students to inform, engage, and challenge a lunchtime crowd at the Millennium Library on topics of broad historical, political and scientific interest!

This is a great opportunity for the UWinnipeg community to present research to the public at large — and for faculty and staff to contribute to knowledge mobilization. 

Ten presenters are needed for both the fall and winter sessions. All presentations are on Wednesday(s) from 12:00 – 1:00 pm and standard PowerPoint capabilities are provided.
