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.

In both fields of study, ethnochoreology and ethnomusicology, I examine dance and music from a cultural anthropological perspective. Over the past two decades, I have conducted fieldwork in Spain, investigating nightclubs as well as Catalan national dances such as the sardana (round dance) and castells (human towers). Other than one takes place at night and the others during the day, what sort of observations can be made that reflect Spanish daily life? How has music and dance in Spain changed over the last two decades?

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.
