Science Slam

Research Meets Poetry
Promovendi presenteren hun onderzoek in een kort gedicht!
Location: 
Usva, Munnekeholm 10, Groningen
Tickets: 
€ 4,- / € 2,- met SG-kortingspas / studenten gratis

Ten PhD candidates share their passion for research in a different way! Guided by our local UG poets Rachel Raetzer and Esmé van den Boom, these young researchers speed-dated a poet and transformed their research topic into a short poem. They'll present the result to the public in the Usva theater. Is it a poem, a rhyming dialogue between the researcher and the poet, a rap or a spoken word poem? Anything goes. The audience decides who wins.

The Science Slam takes place during the Poëzie Marathon in the Student Culture Center Usva, Munnekeholm 10 and is organized by Studium Generale Groningen and Usva. 

Note! The presentation of this event will be in Dutch, however, some of the researchers will perform in English.
