Fall 2023 Art Science Connect Student Showcase (Call for papers)

The Graduate Center’s Art Science Connect invites submissions for a showcase of student research. The showcase will take place on Friday, September 29, 2023 at the Graduate Center.
The pursuits of art and science have always been linked. Historically, they have shared common concerns, methods, goals and even practitioners. The Art Science Connect program supports student research that investigates the ways in which art and science speak to and inform each other. This event aims to showcase that student research for a wide, public audience and to generate meaningful cross-disciplinary discussion. The showcase will conclude with keynote presentations by two experienced academics working at the intersection of art and science.

All GC students are invited to submit abstracts of no more than 300 words for 15-minute paper presentations. Proposals from graduate students in any discipline will be considered. We welcome conventional academic papers as well as other creative proposals. Students who have previously received a fellowship from Art Science Connect are welcome to submit a proposal related to research that was supported by that fellowship or to more current research projects. Student speakers will be offered a small renumeration ($200) for their participation.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
• Aesthetics
• The environment
• Embodiment
• Medicine and health
• Politics
• Technology
• Data visualization


September 29, 2023; 1:00-6:00pm
