PS Assembly


PS Assembly

This yea we will be offering a series of get-togethers for all students and faculty in the department.  Each session will be loosely grounded in a topic that ties to the faculty's research.  The series will be run by alternating members of the faculty who will briefly introduce each session and then facilitate discussion for the group. The assemblies will offer opportunities to come together--across the ranks and in a more informal setting--to discuss how we can approach a project, or an object, or a problem; how we research it; how we put our ideas together; how we communicate those ideas.
