As the saying goes, in comedy timing is everything and that is definitely also the case when it comes to the PechaKucha 20x20 format of presentation.

The Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) hosted the second annual research showcase, “Powered by PechaKucha,” to highlight some of the work being conducted at Queen’s University in the fields of social sciences, humanities and arts.

Ten faculty members took on the challenge and provided insight into their work utilizing 20 slides for 20 seconds each.

It makes for a fast-paced, hectic but informative evening.

Each researcher discussed the work they’ve done, or propose to do, with grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).
