The Communication Graduate Caucus (CGC) invites you to participate in a Critical Karaoke Q&A with Dr. Rena Bivens. Critical Karaoke welcomes us to gently take a step back from the well-worn conventions of academic conference talks and experiment with the use of speech, gestures, sound, image, editing, rhythm, and even improvisation to communicate our research. For more information about Critical Karaoke, please see the document attached. The Q&A section is aimed at helping students who are interested to know more about Critical Karaoke and creative presenting styles for their future academic presentations.
