Research-a-thons, hackathons, installathons. Kislaks are events where a group gets together over a long session to research a particular question or develop new tools and methods for a particular problem, or both.

We call these events Kislaks, in honor of Jay Kislak, namesake of the Kislak Center, whose book collections focus on the earliest exploration of Europeans to the Americas.

Kislaks may be held anywhere in the Kislak Center. Please contact us using the form below if you are interested in organizing an ongoing event or series of sessions, either in Vitale II or elsewhere on the sixth floor.
