Don’t miss this fun, fast-paced event celebrating new research taking place within the CUNY Graduate Center community. In the sixth annual showcase, selected doctoral candidates will make short presentations, describing their dissertations in three minutes each. They will share innovative scholarship — in language for a general audience — across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. A prize will be given to the student who does the best job translating his or her research for the public, chosen by a panel of judges, and viewers will decide on the Audience Choice Award. Join us in person or online to hear fresh ideas and support our graduating students.

Weekday visitors to the Graduate Center’s 365 Fifth Avenue campus no longer have to show proof of vaccination or negative PCR tests at the lobby desk. They just need to show a government-issued picture ID and sign in at the security desk. To enter the Graduate Center, CUNY students, faculty, and staff are required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination through the Cleared4 platform. Please see Building Entry Policy for more information.

A video of this event will be posted a few days later on our YouTube Channel.

Please contact Jimmy Cok at in advance for CART services or any additional accessibility requests or concerns for in-person events.​ This event will be livestreamed, and closed captions will be provided.
