Please join the Department of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities) Center for Innovation Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting in an exploration of interdisciplinary learning initiatives taking place on our campus and beyond.
To kick off the meeting, on Thursday, April 4 at 6:00 pm we will be co-sponsoring an ArtTalk with the Eugene Lang College Arts Department by David Rothenberg, a leading figure in the fields of music, ecology and interspecies communication. Rothenberg is an author, composer, jazz clarinetist, and distinguished professor of Philosophy and Music at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
Over the course of the day on Friday, April 5, scientists, artists, researchers, and designers will creatively share ideas about curricular initiatives and research in education that promote the call to action prompted by the recent publication by the National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine, Branches of the Same Tree: The Integration of Humanities and Arts with Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.
Sharon Egretta Sutton, Visiting Professor of Architecture at Parsons School of Design and author of When Ivory Towers Were Black: A Story About Race in America’s Cities and Universities, will be the keynote speaker, presenting an overview of her work in social justice movements and interdisciplinary education and scholarship.
Registration is free with RSVP and includes light breakfast and lunch.
We recommend attendees book their own lodging. We are close to many subway lines and hotels within walking distance including: The Walker Hotel, The Washington Square Hotel, The Marlton, and the Gansevoort Meatpacking.
For those interested in sharing their work and ideas for interdisciplinary education via poster, fireside chats, workshops or presentations, please submit your proposals here. Abstracts submitted prior to February 8th will have priority as will those from TNS.
