Border Sessions 2014 - Wed, 12 Nov 2014
The best way to get to grips with the noisiness of modern life is to bring the noisiness into the research space.
The challenges to human flourishing posed by the emerging urban world, above all the unremitting busyness, noisiness, and always-on-ness we face, demand a new approach to human wellness. At Border Sessions core members of the The Hub talk about what it takes to inject a startup ambiance into translational health research. With some 40 investigators spanning geography, history of science, cognitive anthropology, interaction design, neuroscience, documentary filmmaking, literary criticism, and music composition, Hubbub will be among the most transdisciplinary research environments ever conceived. What can we hope to accomplish in a highly compressed 22 months? How can we make health research participant-driven? What happens when investigators make communicating with the public a priority from the start?
