From the Faculty Lounge: What is Creativity?

June 15, 2018

 

What is behind that creative idea that pops into your head? Elliot Paul, assistant professor of philosophy, and Joan Snitzer, co-chair and director of the visual arts program in the Art History department, join Provost Linda Bell for a discussion on the relationship between creative expression and the process that supports it. Reflecting on their own personal experiences, Paul and Snitzer explore how creativity works and what it means to master the technical aspect of an art form, and they delve into aspects of creativity that are conscious and unconscious.​ Join our discussion as we bring the liberal arts to life through interdisciplinary conversations.

From the Faculty Lounge is a series of conversations filmed live in which Barnard faculty members discuss their intersecting research and ideas. For upcoming event dates, visit the events page.
