TxHATS December 2014


The TxHATS Experts Network began when three founders decided to start talking about art + science and how best to combine disciplines into workable multi-disciplinary projects. The TxHATS founders are xREZ Art+Science Lab Director Ruth West, UT Dallas Art-Sci Lab Director Roger Malina, and Texas A&M University, SEAD network Director Carol LaFayette.

We wanted to find out what was on their minds when they decided to found the TxHATS Experts Network, so we decided to ask them a few questions.

Q. What can you remember about how the idea for TxHATS first came together?




Q. What did the founders envision the TxHATS would become?
