Liberal Studies will hold its fifth annual Student Research Colloquium. This year we are excited to announce that the event will be held in collaboration with the Integrated Digital Media (IDM) program at NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering. The annual event invites an internationally renowned speaker to the Washington Square campus to speak, showcase exemplary student research, and facilitate students’ in-depth exploration of timely topics, as well as offers students a valuable opportunity to present their research to the NYU community.
Our 2020 keynote presenter is artist and NYU alumna Beatrice Glow, who in service of public history and a more socially and environmentally just future, often co-labors with scholars, scientists and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. Her ongoing research into the social histories of plants provides vignettes into the entangled realities of dispossession, enslavement, migrations and extractive economies. In this artist talk, she will delve into the creative process behind various experiential technology collaborations and multisensory and multimedia projects that weave together a global narrative of shared cultural heritages and environmental realities.
