DASHTalks are like TEDTalks in style, if a bit more substantive. They explain the scholar’s research and creation methods in pithy and provocative language. They tell audiences why this work is possible only in 2014, and why it’s important — not only to the researcher, but also to the faculty, the university, and the community at large.

For information, contact the co-organizers: Murray McGillivray and Michael Ullyot.
