ICCC Brewing Ideas - Cultural Artifacts and Interdisciplinary Approaches
When: Thursday, February 16th
Where: DRC, Arts 145
The ICCC is proud to launch a new conversation series, “Brewing Ideas”. The interdisciplinary sessions are designed to promote conversation about creative and culturally relevant topics. The monthly sessions are open to all faculty and students. Everyone is welcome to join us for freshly brewed coffee, snacks and interesting discussion.
The monthly series will be offered the last Thursday of every month at 3:00. (Due to Reading Week, the first session of this series will offered on the third Thursday of February.)
David Parkinson is hosting our first conversation of the series. David will be seeking feedback about interdisciplinary opportunities related to cultural artifacts unique to our university. These opportunities may introduce a specific problem for research in courses or the creation of a course itself. In turn, this work may offer new understandings about the origins, physical properties, meaning, function and value of an artifact through various cultural, disciplinary and interdisciplinary lenses. To begin, the conversation will focus on a concrete example of this idea by exploring opportunities related to the Amati Instruments and current expressed interest in the instruments from faculty in Medical Imaging. David will lead a discussion about this concept as a whole including, but not limited to, ideas for how to conduct this type of exploration and potential artifacts to examine, events related to these opportunities, etc.
We hope you can join us for an interesting conversation!
Stay tuned for more details of our March 29th session!
