Center for the Study of the Drone
The Center for the Study of the Drone is an interdisciplinary research and art community working to understand unmanned and autonomous vehicles. Based at the College, the Center was founded in 2012 by Arthur Holland Michel ’13 and Dan Gettinger ’13, along with a group of Bard College faculty members. The Center’s goals are to bring together research from diverse academic and art perspectives, to encourage dialogue between the tech and nontech worlds, and to inform the public debate. The Center for the Study of the Drone has sponsored seminars, lectures, debates, and roundtable discussions at Bard and in New York City. It also provides resources and support to undergraduate students, who are welcome to collaborate on the Center’s original research projects; paid internships are also available. The Center’s website
features interviews, conference transcripts, artwork, and a weekly news roundup.
