Through the student led MinDesign lab we have already convened a series of meetings between design, psychology, Fine Arts and economics students. Emerging from these discussions has been a need to deepen a shared basis of knowledge. Therefore, we established an ongoing speaker series to inform and help create the shared lexicon of terminology and methodologies.
As a start, we source a series of guest speakers from throughout the university as well as external speakers and experts in these interdisciplinary fields. These talks would be both Parsons and psychology professors and other members of the NSSR, alumni, and the greater professional community. Ultimately, these talks and independent research projects developed through this group will culminate in an evening panel that will take place at the end of spring semester.
