Natural Dialogues: Art, Science, and Material Objects Graduate Student Symposium, Call for Papers
I just read on the Corporeality website about a really interesting looking symposium to be held at the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven, Connecticut called "Natural Dialogues: Art, Science, and Material Objects." The call for papers is open until October 14th, and the conference will take place February 21, 2009.
Just a few possible areas of possible inquiry, suggested by the symposium organizers:
• networks of artists and scientists
• artist/scientist collaborations
• art and the natura world
• the philosophical concept of the sublime
• science museum displays
• scientific illustration
For a complete list of suggested topics and further information, check out the Corporeality website.
