Join us for lightning talks – quick introductions to an idea or object – by six of Beinecke Library’s current Research Fellows. Learn about what they’ve been looking at from the library’s collections and how these materials are supporting their research projects. Chat with the fellows over coffee and a sweet treat at a post-talk reception.

Here are the titles of the talks the fellows will present:

Daisy Atterbury: Writing in the Nuclear Context: Space, Eros and Colonial Entanglements
