Spring 2015 seminar season


Ecologize knowledge & shape the future
We are excited to announce the spring 2015 curricula for The New Centre for Research & Practice.

Following a successful fall 2014 season with nearly 200 participants engaged in groundbreaking arts and sciences research via our digital pedagogy platforms, we now look forward to an expanded lineup of 17 seminars, as well as our newly added Media & Technology program.

Apply for a certificate
Develop a plan of study towards realizing your projects. Work closely with your advisor in a directed studies setting to guide your progress through your certificate requirements. Earn a graduate-level certificate in one of five programs, to enhance and complement your MA & PhD degrees:

Art & Curatorial Practice

Media & Technology
Social & Political Thought
Transdisciplinary Research & Practice

Enroll in our seminars
Connect and work with instructors on specific research projects. Work out the ramifications of your own concepts while receiving feedback from instructors, guest speakers, and others participating in the seminar.
