Virtual Pecha Kucha

On April 28, 2014, the Cultural Research Network held a “virtual Pecha Kucha” session. Five presenters offered 20 slides each, at 20 seconds per slide, all with the added excitement and unpredictability of video conferencing. Brave souls.

You can find each presentation below. Or browse all of them through the CRN’s Vimeo Channel.

Thanks to all of our presenters for diving into this grand experiment. And thanks also for all who attended to learn and contribute to the conversation.
