Art into Science : Science into Arta symposium on the relationships between the arts, humanities and sciences


For seventy years the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication at Imperial College London, and its predecessor department, has been exploring the interrelationship between the arts and sciences.​As part of our 70th birthday celebration, we invite academics to join us for a one-day symposium on the theme of Art into Science - Science into Art, which will take place at Imperial College London's South Kensington Campus in central London, on Thursday 5 March 2020.​INITIAL CALL FOR PAPERS​We invite submissions for short talks for possible inclusion in the symposium, each lasting no more than 20 minutes. The selected talks will look at an aspect of the relationship between the arts and sciences, and be followed by discussion on the issues raised by each talk. We are open-minded as to the type of paper that could be included, although our preference is for papers exploring fundamental connections between the arts and sciences, rather than discussions on the use of new technology by artists.​We are open to highly speculative papers, with the aim of the event being to stimulate discussion on the connections between the arts and sciences, both in an historical and contemporary context, ideas on future connections and debate on still apparent divide between the two cultures of the arts and sciences.​Researchers in all academic disciplines are welcome to submit proposals, including the arts, sciences, social sciences and humanities.​To submit a proposal for a paper, please send a short abstract, of no more than 300 words, outlining the theme of your proposed paper, together with your CV/resumé, current academic position (if applicable) and contact details to Dr Michael Paraskos at with the subject line in your email of 2020 Conference.​The deadline for submissions is 15 December 2019.​We welcome proposals for papers from research students and independent scholars.
