    Despite the fact that our institutions sit within a single square mile, it can be difficult to connect with possible research collaborators across campuses and across disciplines. We are here to help! This semester we will host four research salons, each focusing on a different theme. Sign up for one or more salons. Then, arrive to the facilitated mixer ready to engage with faculty and staff colleagues with an eye toward identifying possible research collaborations. Colleagues from the library, foundation relations and sponsored programs will be on hand to field questions about possible funding opportunities and other resources to support budding collaborations. Happy hour refreshments will be provided. The salons are co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning, Claremont DH, EnviroLab Asia, the Hive, the Library and the Office of Consortial Academic Collaboration. Please reach out to any of these cross-campus centers with questions or suggestions.

    "Communication is so difficult, even among people of the same language and culture. Yet we seem to have little sense of humility when it comes to dealing with people with whom we have profound cultural differences. That struggle to communicate when the stakes are so high seemed like a good premise for comedy. There are no villains in the play, everyone is actually trying to do the right thing, and their failures are common and trivial. It's only that the stakes are so high. The unexpected thing for me is how tonally light the piece suddenly appears compared to the dark reality we find ourselves in now. I think it's good to be reminded that there are serious jobs to do, and we really need to care who does them." - Jason Wells, playwright.
