Lecture: What Role Can the Arts Play in Fostering Creative Thinking Across Disciplines?
Alison Weaver, the Executive Director of the Moody, talks about "What Role Can the Arts Play in Fostering Creative Thinking Across Disciplines?" in conjunction with Rice's Scientia 2018-19 Lecture Series on creativity.
About the lecture series
Scientia is a faculty-led Institute at Rice that promotes multidisciplinary engagement to benefit the university and the Houston community at large.
Scientia devotes this year's lecture series to the topic of creativity. While people in the various disciplines at Rice differ in the questions that we ask and the methods we use, what unites us is the creative impulse we bring to our work. This year we call on people from different disciplines to talk about how their imagination works to tackle interesting questions and to pose novel ideas. Scientia anticipates plenty of creativity from its speakers during the 2018-2019 Academic Year.
