The format of the Salon is called Mix and Stir. For each Salon, two speakers will be asked to share a critical itinerary for about15 minutes each.  The Salon encourages experimental, short, playful and conversational presentations.  Instead of a typical research presentation we ask speakers to think of their presentations as a kind of conceptual offering or further provocation towards discussion.  Two graduate students  will stir up the discussion with short improvisational responses that kick start the group conversation.
