• New School Minute

    Alumni Day Image Landing page

    Since 2013, dozens of 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 broad range of timely topics, including humanitarian design, color theory, information mapping, jazz improvisation, the economics of outsourcing, the rhetoric of race, and the human condition. Taken together, the lectures offer a sense of the depth and scope of the work being done in New School classrooms. 

    Watch New School Minute 2017, which was live-streamed at Alumni Day 2017 on Saturday, May 6.
