The Center for Transformative Media at Parsons The New School for Design is a transdisciplinary media research initiative bridging design, technology, the arts and the social sciences; and
dedicated to the exploration of the transformative potential of emerging technologies upon the foundational practices of everyday life across a range of disciplines and settings.
CTM sees the university as an open, diverse ecology of overlapping constituencies unparalleled in breadth and depth. Each has specific areas of expertise and aspiration as well as diverse
connections to communities and networks outside the institution, through faculty, students, and our external partners. CTM develops progressive, innovative and accessible projects that enrich the university’s creative, intellectual and operational life.
Most of all, we seek to connect the pragmatic immediate with the speculative – and, in doing so, to enhance The New School’s capacity to offer new modes, means, and settings for learning.
