A multi-year, multi-generational H+U+D colloquium explores a range of topics at the intersection of design and the humanities. Colloquium members are appointed for two year terms and meet regularly over the course of each academic semester. Meetings highlight resources for the envisioned research, promote shared disciplinary contributions to the field, explore methodological differences and commonalities among disciplines. Resulting communities of interest, understanding and friendships will endure beyond the life of the program.
