Hadley Parum is a sophomore, intending to moderate into joint studies of Psychology and Music in the Spring of 2019. Their interests in psychology are most concentrated in the field of cognition, especially perception, states of consciousness, attention, and memory. In music, they study musicology and ethnomusicology, both fields which would be interesting to evaluate through the lens of cognitive psychology. Additionally, Hadley works as a writing and music theory tutor through the Bard Learning Commons, and as a barista at the CCS/Hessel Museum’s café. They have been an avid member of the Bard Debate Union since their arrival on campus, participating in on-campus public debates as well as travelling to competitive tournaments around the world. This final sentence an obligatory mention that they love coffee and cats very much, as evidenced by their dearly prized, quite large cat-shaped coffee mug.
