Fuelled by free caffeine, an abundance of sugar, and serious camaraderie—the Blackwell Talks showcase and support budding scholarship at its early stages. Presentations are on new research at any stage of preparation, from the eureka moment to publication-ready papers, shared in terms intelligible to non-specialists in an informal, friendly environment. 

Faculty presenters receive a stipend, certificate, pin, and the title of Blackwell Scholar. Blackwell Scholars are selected by members of the Blackwell Talks Committee (originally known as The Committee of Ruthless and Picky Selection) from proposals submitted twice each year.

Talks are held on consecutive Mondays of each term with light a light lunch provided. Fall 2014 talks are sponsored byCAFÉ, Cook-Cole College of Arts & Sciences, Greenwood Library, College of Graduate & Professional Studies, College of Business & Economics, and College of Education & Human Services. Undergraduates not admitted.
