In this interview with librarian Carmen Hendershott, former New School employee and Parsons School of Design alumna Sonia Salas describes her youth in the Dominican Republic and outlines her career at The New School. She recalls past tensions between the New School for Social Research and other university divisions stemming from questions of financial equity, and how these tensions have dissipated during the administrations of Presidents Bob Kerrey and David Van Zandt due to increased inter-divisional cooperation and centralization.
