Registration open for non-presenter attendees! Fifth Annual Graduate Research Symposium November 2, 2021 [cid:[log in to unmask]] The COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath has brought much uncertainty to academia, posing many questions for scholars: How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed the meaning of scholarly innovation and trajectory of the job market? How can researchers continue producing transformative, meaningful work with so much uncertainty and turmoil going on in the world? How can graduate students plan for their careers while earning their degree? On Tuesday November 2, 2021, the University of Florida's Black Graduate Student Organization (BGSO) and Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) will host the Fifth Graduate Research Symposium, featuring a keynote address from UF College of Journalism and Communications Dean Hubert "Hub" Brown and a panel on issues relevant to innovation, renewal, and the job market during current times. Dean Brown's keynote address will provide various insights ranging from the implications for scholarly renewal (post-pandemic) and the importance of cultivating a community in academia. Our diverse group of panelists - Dr. Chris Busey, Dr. Ana Maria Porras, Dr. Cecilia Suarez, and Dr. Kendall Parker - will answer questions presented by presenters and attendees.
