How to talk about a presentation done multiple times on CV?

Recommended Posts

If I've presented a presentation at multiple conferences, how do I talk about that on my CV?

For context, I first gave this presentation at my undergrad institution. It was then presented by my supervisor with my permission at a different conference in Summer 2018. I'm now going to present it again at yet another different conference this February. 

Should I make a line for the first time I gave the presentation, with bullets underneath describing the other times it was presented, or should I make a separate line/description for each time it was given? 

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this is discipline specific, but in psych, you can only list it once. Listing the same exact presentation multiple times is like double dipping. I would pick the most prestigious conference and go with that one. Now, if you added something different each time, like added more data which altered results or you added another variable which affected the data, then that's a different story.

@PsyDGrad90 Thank you so much! That's helpful to know. The presentation changed names, but otherwise has remained the same, so I'll keep it with the single listing and add the details on the other instances underneath.

Check with the professor who is the co-author, but traditionally you don't include any other instances or that presentation. It is just listed as the 1 presentation at that 1 conference.

In my discipline it is not frown upon. People do it a lot, especially in different contexts Eg, undergrad, then grad. I have a paper that have presented several times and is now becoming an article so it appears four times on my CV. 

Also, do not put in your CV that a professor presented your work unless it's accepted in your discipline.

Please clarify. Did the work remain the same as the OP's did?

No, it evolved. But the titles were almost the same (minus some dates). I make this comment because I've seen several job talks on papers people have in their CVs and I asked around about this because I was a little embarrassed that my job talk looked the same as my previous presentations.

MOO, the former is an important distinction that mitigates the latter. IME, historians can give the same presentation/talk over and again only if they're reached the pinnacle of the profession and are presenting findings to a general audience.
