2015-2016 Colloquium Series

We aim to highlight theory-guided, hypothesis-driven translational research with our colloquium series.  Our series is attended by all research faculty, clinical faculty, doctoral students, MA SLP students, and AUD students.  Our colloquia are also attended by faculty in relevant departments including Linguistics and Psychology.  We aim to encourage student participation by asking our speakers to send a relevant paper for students to read in advance of the talk.  We also ask speakers to limit their talk to 40 minutes, reserving 20 minutes for questions and discussion.

Our colloquia begin at 12:30 PM on the dates shown below.  The October, November, and December colloquia will be held in BOUS A106 (the Psychology building). The February, March, and April colloquia will be held in HBL Video Theater 2 (the library).  Please contact Rachel M. Theodore (rachel.theodore@uconn.edu) with any questions.
