INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR EXAMPLES OF ART-SCIENCE-HUMANITIES CURRICULA
Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina and UT Dallas doctoral student Kathryn Evans are interested in examples of courses and curricula that are in the art-science-humanities field such as courses on art and biology, music and mathematics, art and chemistry, dance and environmental sciences, etc. The call is an re-launch of a similar call issued in 2009 (http://www.leonardo.info/isast/announcements/LEF_ArtScience_curricula.html) and will be included in a Advocacy White Paper (Breaking Down the Silos: Curriculum Development as a Tool for Crossing Disciplines in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities) that is being developed in response to the international call for Advocacy White Papers issued by the network for Science Engineering Art and Design (http://sead.viz.tamu.edu/index.html) The White Paper is being developed with an international advisory group consisting of Paul Thomas (Australia), Edward Shanken (Netherlands), and Christo Doherty (South Africa).
We are interested in the broad range of all forms of the performing arts, including music, dance, theatre and film, and the visual arts; and connecting to all the hard and social sciences. We are including art and new technologies (eg: nano tech) but in general not new media curricula unless they include an art-science component.
Individuals who have taught an art-science-humanities course at the university or secondary-school level, in formal or informal settings, are invited to contact Kathryn Evans, with details of their curriculum, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include permission to include your course on the Curriculum Development in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities (CDASH) website http://www.utdallas.edu/atec/cdash/
