PUBLIC CONFERENCE ON ART SCIENCE COLLABORATIONS, 18 DECEMBER 2014
Fred Swanson (H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest) is presenting at a workshop about art/science confluence, hosted by the South American Institute for Resilience and Sustainability (SARAS). Fred will be discussing the emergence of arts/humanities at sites of long-term ecological research in the US.
The meeting is to be held in Uruguay this December. Here is an outline of the agenda, and a description of the event framework.
"The three day workshop for 30-40 attendees will focus on the opportunities and challenges that emerge when we try to bring together disciplines that have been historically divided. It will be followed by a one day public conference at which we will share our findings with a public of several hundred regional stakeholders."From Fred:
"Hard to tell what some of the presentations will be about, but I just watched some videos of the Bjordem-Scheffer art-science collaboration and they are interesting - easy to google up. Scheffer was just featured in a couple-page story in Science about this work on ecological tipping points."I'll update this post with more information after the meeting.
