Stories of Art and Science

17 September, 2009
Porto, PORTUGAL

The conference “Stories of Art and Science” will take place on 17 September 2009 at the University of Porto, Portugal. It will be the opening event of “Nomadic.0910 – Meetings between Art and Science”.
The relationships between art and science, their intersections and dissimilarities, have been since long object of much debate. And in view of a comprehensive understanding of this debate a narrative of specific collaboration episodes might be a useful starting point.
The conference is organized into the three main sessions: “Between Cultures”, “On Display” and “Stories in the History”. It aims at bringing together people from the visual and performance arts, the sciences and the humanities. Invited speakers include Michael Punt, Monique Sicard, Shirley Wheeler, Maria Esteva, Len Massey, Jane S. Richardson, Laura Salisbury, David A. Kirby, David Frankel, Deanna Petherbridge, Daniela Coimbra and Vincent Barras.

Registration is now open.
