  • Cross-Tisch

    The Interdepartmental Faculty Series

    Cross-Tisch is the interdepartmental faculty series designed to bring faculty from accross departments together to share their current research projects, get to know and understand one another's work, ask new questions and perhaps even forge new collaborations. Launched by University Professor Diana Taylor, Collegiate Professor Una Chaudhury, and the Tisch Initiative for Creative Research, the goal of Cross-Tisch was to provide opportunities for faculty to come together and share work in a social space. The series has rotating co-conveners who host and organize one to two events per semester, in partnership with the Tisch Initiative for Creative Research. Since it's inception, Cross-Tisch has evolved into inquiry-driven gatherings that create new connections and deepen existing research.

    The Tisch Collaboratory was hosted each spring 2015 - 2017 by the Tisch Initiative for Creative Research and facilitated by leading New York City artists seasoned in collaboration. The program served as a creative and collaborative laboratory designed to connect Tisch undergraduate students from across departments, and to introduce a variety of collaborative methods and practices. Collaboratory provided an extra-curricular, concentrated, focused environment for inter-disciplinary creation and experimentation. Collaboratory was non-credit bearing and free to matriculated Tisch undergraduate students.
