WISELI Seminar
Physics In Concert With The Arts
Date: Thursday, September 26th
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Agnes Mocsy, Pratt Institute
Abstract: This talk's journey will depart from the often present science-art dichotomy, exploring the complicated, often unexpected relationship that physics and the arts share. This complex relationship provides opportunities for fresh storytelling, in particular physics narratives embedded in a wider culture and interdisciplinary explorations in classrooms and beyond. I argue that science and the arts acting in concert may deliver benefits beyond science communication, addressing questions of social justice, and become an influencer of a more equitable world.
Host: Women and Gender Minorities in Physics (GMaWiP)
