    Since 2013, more than 60 New School faculty members have risen to the "New School Minute" challenge of delivering a fully realized lecture in just 60 seconds. The lectures have covered a wide range of topics, including humanitarian design, color theory, information mapping, jazz improvisation, the economics of outsourcing, the rhetoric of race, and the human condition. Each lecture offered a sense of the depth and scope of the work being done in New School classrooms.
