On Friday, October 18th, UT American Studies hosted its “second annual” PechaKucha. After reviving the tradition last fall, the department came together to hear presentations on research trips and upcoming projects.
The rules for presenters were simple: show twenty slides for twenty seconds each and speak as the slides advance automatically.
A huge thank you to the UT AMS faculty and graduate students who presented, and a special shout out to PhD candidate Judson Barber for being our fabulous emcee!
