About the Kule Connect Cafés The Kule Connect Cafés is a new informal networking event series open to all U of A faculty, post-docs and grad students in the social sciences, humanities and fine arts to connect and discover mutual research interests and resources across the University of Alberta in pursuit of developing cross-disciplinary research teams. It is a casual forum for research ideas at an early stage of formulation. No formal program, and no 'outcomes' are required! To propose a theme for future cafés, email or drop by our office at 337 Arts & Convocation Hall (themes should be broad enough, e.g. energy and climate change, migration and refugees, medical humanities, indigenous languages etc.).
