DRAWING IN THE UNIVERSITY TODAY is pleased to invite researchers, artists and students to submit full theoretical papers, practice based reports and artistic projects exploring the use of drawing in the various fields of contemporary university.

Thought as processes by which the mind is committed to ideas that can only be expressed visually, drawings are also embodied forms of knowledge, crossing very distinct areas of research and practical experience – from arts, to humanities and sciences. However, its status and its uses in the University are relatively unknown or overlooked, confined to the specificities of departments and research centers.

The renewed interest on drawing beyond the traditional areas to which is commonly associated – fine arts, architecture and design – is a symptom of its emergence in the various teaching, laboratorial and expository/communicative contexts, as images, diagrams,  notations, processes, models, methodologies and traces standing for an investigated idea or phenomenon.

 ::::::::::::::::::::::::::

DRAWING IN THE UNIVERSITY TODAY proposes to gather the emerging research on the presence of drawing in the University activity, as a visual and performative strategy – from visual arts and design to medicine, from sports to cognitive sciences, from geography to criminology, from engineering to communication sciences, from archeology to biology, from architecture to ethnography.

We suggest the following questions, among others, as starting points:

– What cross-disciplinary perspectives are open to drawing practices in a contemporary University?
– How can drawing contribute to an image based research in the University?
– Is there a specific visual imagination in scientific practice?
– How is drawing involved in a design process?
– What engagements can be imagined between drawing and verbal language?
– How is drawing involved in performance based practices in the University?
– What roles are assigned to drawing in laboratorial and studio contexts?
– How does drawing relate active perception with cognition and creativity?
– How can drawing enhance teaching and learning strategies in the University?
