Winter 2019 Programming

Research Meet & Greet
The Research Meet & Greet is a collaboration between StudioCHI and the University Library. It promotes opportunities for DePaul faculty and staff to share and learn about research and creative projects going on across the university. Each event includes invited presentations and less formal, open mic style lightning talks. For more details and to sign up, check here.

Ted Anton argues that research stories can make literary art exploring the key issues of our times. For his latest work, he seeks to combine concepts from two of his books, Planet of Microbes and Eros, Magic, and the Murder of Professor Culianu, into a compelling thriller. His presentation titled Microbes and Murder shares the latest from his new project, Star Drive, about a biotech gone wrong, and some of the influences of writers like Richard Powers, Anne Patchett, and new steampunk writers taking ecological concerns and the science-based thriller to new levels.
