Last night I participated in the NYU College of Arts and Sciences Upstander Dialogue. The Upstander program provides a forum for students to come together and discuss issues affecting the NYU community. The Upstander program hosts a dialogue each semester, and this semester Gabi Starr and I were the featured speakers. The topic of the dialogue was why diversity matters in an academic context. Gabi and I discussed our interdisciplinary research group, which consists of philosophers, psychologists, neuroscientists, humanists, and medical professionals, and how we work together as a group with diverse backgrounds to achieve a common goal.
For a recap, the NYU student newspaper wrote a short article on the dialogue, which you can read here.
