Save the Date Bridging Science, Art, and Community in the New Arctic Workshop 23-26 September 2019 Charlottesville, Virginia
Organizers announce the Bridging Science, Art, and Community in the New Arctic workshop. This workshop will convene 23-26 September 2019 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The workshop will consist of a one-day symposium featuring disciplinary research presentations by a wide variety of practitioners, including environmental scientists, musicians, architects, and anthropologists, followed by a three-day working meeting for interdisciplinary discussions among researchers, Alaskan youth, and university students. There will also be musical performances and art exhibitions.
The workshop will be organized around a core scientific question that focuses on a very specific, and human-relevant, spatial scale of the Arctic landscape. That question is: how does the changing Arctic landscape affect the natural, built, and cultural environments of the Arctic system?
The proposed question and the unique methods of inquiry will lead to a workshop outcome of action items for moving forward a new agenda of highly interdisciplinary means for research, education, and outreach.
More information will be available at a later date.
