Research On Tap

The Oklahoma State University Division of the Vice President for Research, in partnership with Iron Monk Brewery, is excited to present an opportunity for you, the public, to meet and interact with experts from a wide range of research fields at OSU. Researchers from the sciences, arts and humanities will be joined by Dr. Kenneth Sewell, the Vice President for Research, to have a conversation regarding their work and the impact it has on you and your community. Ample time will be provided for you to interact with the researcher and questions are encouraged in this informal, but informative, setting.

The stories we tell ourselves about the world around us inform how we interact with our environment. Stories reveal perspectives on how things operate, why certain problems exist, why certain rules are important and others not, and, ultimately, set standards that help us identify “good” actions as we go about our day to day lives.

Our conversation will highlight how strategic narrative analysis is being used as a tool to inform US military commanders and policy makers of the perspectives of others. The importance, and limitations, of those perspectives in decision making will be explored, as well as the role of perspective sharing on identity formation.

We hope you will join us the third Monday of each month to enjoy some of Stillwater’s own local brew while chatting about some of the impactful and interesting research happening here on the OSU campus. Each session will be approximately 20 minutes of open dialogue between Dr. Sewell and the researcher, followed by questions and discussion from the audience.
