Call for contributions — International Conference on Drawing Across Disciplines

Drawing Across x Along x Between University Borders |
International Conference on Drawing Across Disciplines

16, 17 & 18 October 2024.
University of Porto, Portugal*

Deadline: 30 April 2024.

Drawing Across x Along x Between University Borders considers the epistemological and transformative potential of drawing research to connect divergent areas in the university today. The conference focuses on drawing-based collaborations between art, science and society to tackle artistic, educational and societal challenges. We invite artists, scientists, educators, students, university policymakers and persons interested in inter-transdisciplinary practices across academia, research, and society to contribute and join the discussion in three possible directions:

ACROSS – In what ways are drawing practitioners challenging the disciplinary structures that often constrain thinking and acting across divergent areas in the university?

ALONG – How can drawing activities be an ally of STEM education in the university, and how can STEM practices be an ally of drawing education?

BETWEEN – How can drawing-based practices and STEM disciplines collaborate to address the urgency of societal challenges?

Submission formats: papers; workshops; practice-sharing
