Plasmodial S. Mold (Physarum Polycephalum), Visiting Non-Human Scholar, began teaching at Hampshire in the Spring of 2017.

The first scholar-in-residence, Plasmodial S. Mold, known as Physarum polycephalum, arrived from Carolina Biological Supply in 2017, and moved into a dedicated office in the Cole Science Center.

Visiting Non-Human Scholar Mold helps solve important problems from a non-human perspective, and greatly enhances intellectual life on campus by helping students and colleagues to think about and see the world without our normal human biases.
