Objective of the Research Incubator Seminar Series
The seminar aims to create a forum for scholars to present their work in progress and receive thoughtful constructive comments and suggestions that will help improve the quality of their work. We especially encourage scholars to present current work that has resulted in a dilemma for them in terms of the feasibility, conceptual framework, methodological approaches, data limitations, etc.
We hope that this forum not only provides an opportunity for faculty to present their working papers and receive feedback from their peers on how to overcome the paper's challenges but also facilitates contact and collaboration amongst scholars in various departments. We believe that openness among the departments can result in significant research productivity growth. Although technology has made electronic communication convenient and ubiquitous, gravity still exists in the world of disembodied knowledge because of its tacit nature. The mechanisms that facilitate face-to-face interactions of scholars across departments can significantly contribute to the research outcomes of our college through knowledge transfer amongst scholars. We hope that this forum will help accomplish these objectives.
Ph.D. students are strongly encouraged to attend the seminars since this is a great opportunity to learn and develop as scholars.
