Ms. Diana Meckley

Diana Meckley is currently pursuing an MA in the John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Program in Humanities and Social Thought at New York University, with a focus in English. She received her BA in English from the University of Colorado, continuing graduate work in Interdisciplinary Art Forms. A former experimental composer and independent researcher, her work over the past two decades has reflected her interest in the interfaces between the humanities and science. Her research has focused on issues in interdisciplinary practice in higher education and the ways in which interdisciplinary work in the art, science, and technology communities can inform that practice. Other research has looked at the role of the humanities in providing cross-disciplinary insights that not only help us understand what it means to be human right now, but engender imaginative and critical responses that may help shape what it means to be human in the coming decades. She has participated in and helped conceptualize a number of conferences and think-tanks that focus on interdisciplinary practice, emergent art forms, and art and science. Meckley sits on the Board of Directors of Art and Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI), the Board of Advisors of Harvestworks, Digital Media Arts, and is a member of The Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts.
