CBD Faculty Working Groups 2003-2013

In funding cycles I and II (2003-2013) CBD supported cross-school faculty working groups. Faculty collaborated on projects and pursued research that engaged at least two of the three areas of the study of culture, mind/brain, and human development. Faculty in these groups consulted for a semester, or entire academic year, and shared readings, provided feedback on peer presentations, developed understandings of the concepts and methodologies of different disciplines, and defined issues that could be worked on together in the future. As a result of collaborative CBD working groups, faculty-produced publications in academic journals, presentations at professional conferences, and co-taught courses.
