Days of paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters, and colloquia.
Delegates from all over the world who attended the Fourteenth International Conference on the Arts in Society.
Art, in its diverse forms, constitutes a distinctive means of communication, allowing for dialogues in formal, informal and culturally plural contexts within society. Art opens windows to understanding social interactions. It provides an historical record of social evolution. Bringing discussion about art and reflection of its impacts within contemporary social contexts prompts us to consider questions of identity (human, natural and material). Can art then can exceed its primary goal of reflection, such that, through it, both culture and identity acquire new expressions? In this context, what kinds of new research and development endeavors are required, including active, collaborative and participative approaches?
The Fourteenth International Conference on the Arts in Society featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award, with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics. The 2019 Emerging Scholar Awardees are listed below.
