Magill Philips Wing
25 presentations. 2 minutes each. Digital Haverford on display.
In the fall of 2012 in Magill Library’s Philips Wing, 20-something students, staff, and faculty gathered together for the first SAVE AS: Lightning Talks event, each presenting digitally-minded 2-minute micro-presentations on animation in a digital world, tumblr and intellectual property rights, the help and hindrance of online religious text databases, and yes, even a meta-lesson on how to give a good presentation in two minutes. Cue the inspirational trailer footage and see the full list of presentations. Amid the hastened shouts of presenters and the polite murmuring of the packed audience, one thing was clear: We have to do this again. SAVE AS: Lightning Talks Round II Thursday,1/31/13 7pm - 8:30pm Magill Library, Philips Wing Building on last semester's electrifying array of micro-presentations, Lightning Talks Round II will include 20 faculty, students, and staff engaged in digital scholarship, each speaking for 2 minutes (with some thunder breaks mixed in). If you haven’t seen or participated in one before--they’re often exhilarating, hilarious, and yes, brief!
