Bergren Forum - GLASSARTENGINE

Angus Powers

Bergren Forum - GLASSARTENGINE

Since its inception four years ago, Professor Powers has been teaching a collaborative course with engineering faculty at The New York College of Ceramics titled GLASSARTENGINE. The course is offered to both glass engineering and glass art students, who are paired to work through research and technical challenges to create new physical combinations of glass as a material. The course has had many successful research results and an equal number of challenges and dead ends. In a lecture I would love to share how each group, respectively, has begun to learn the language of the other, along with their habits, and expectations.

The Bergren Forum is sponsored by the Division of Human Studies, The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Provost's Office will be meeting at 12:10 pm on Thursdays in the Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center.

Bring a brown bag lunch, coffee and tea will be provided.
