Call for Papers - Interdisciplinary Arts: Retrospectives and Future Visions

Posted 1 August 2013 in External News and Events

In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, the Ohio University School of Interdisciplinary will hold an international conference on the past, present, and future of interdisciplinary arts. Interdisciplinarity is based on the deep affinity of all branches of knowledge and provides a site for exploring this affinity. In the dynamic current world, as the boundaries between the arts become increasingly permeable, scholars recognize the methodological importance of multidisciplinary scholarship to facilitate our historical and critical understanding of the arts. This conference seeks to bring together and encourage a dialogue among scholars, artists, and graduate students from various academic disciplines and creative venues in order to examine the nature of interdisciplinary arts.
