Dr. Sara Diamond to speak at Sackler Colloquium

 

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 - 11:00am

OCAD University President Sara Diamond will deliver a lecture at the Arthur M. Sackler Colloquia on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 in Washington, D.C.

Her lecture, Modeling New Knowledges – An Inclusive STEAM + D Imperative, is part of The National Academy of Science’s Creativity and Collaboration: Revisiting Cybernetic Serendipity Colloquium. 

The prestigious colloquium will explore ways that art/design and science/engineering/medicine research can yield productive partnerships that address the grand challenges of our times. It is an invitation to think different, to be ambitious, and to collaborate using powerful technologies and innovative social mechanisms.

The Arthur M. Sackler Colloquia address scientific topics of broad and current interest that cut across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Each year, three to four colloquia are scheduled, typically two days in length and international in scope. Each colloquium is organized by a member of the NAS, often with the assistance of an organizing committee, and feature presentations by leading scientists in the field and discussions among one hundred or more researchers with an interest in the topic.
