Can you visualize your research into pictures? Can you show your ideas and thoughts in the “20 images x 20 seconds” format? Can you tell us your research in 400 seconds?

We'd like to invite you to the latest in our Pecha Kucha series. The Graduate School is running the event but it is for anyone who works and studies in the School of Social and Political Sciences - we need postgraduates, undergraduates, teachers, researchers, administrators.  This is an informal occasion with intellectual stimulation and a lot of discussion and socialising.

What is Pecha Kucha?
Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.

What is a Pecha Kucha evening?
Pecha Kuchas are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, work, thoughts, holiday snaps -- just about anything, really -- in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.

What can people present?
The key to a great presentation is to present something you love. Most people use Pecha Kucha Night to present their latest creative projects or work. At our first night we had people present on blogging, sleeping sickness in Africa, researching Appalachian identity, ecology and sociology, visual culture and genetic disorders.

To get inspired, watch presentations from all over the world on Pecha Kucha's main website

And watch the video from our first Pecha Kucha  

Register to attend, and if you would like to present tick the box when you sign up. Then we'll be in touch and have a boot camp on the 24th for those who want to practice.

Wine will be served.
