CALL - for abstracts for Thinking Through Drawing 2012

Thinking through Drawing 2012: Drawing in STEAM
Wimbledon College of Arts, London
13-14 September 2012

Deadline for abstracts: 20 June 2012

This International Drawing and Cognition Research event follows on from last year’s interdisciplinary symposium, Thinking through Drawing Symposium: Practice into Knowledge. It will bring together artists, educators, scientists, medical practitioners, philosophers, engineers, computer scientists, and more, to examine the uses of drawing across Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths.

How is drawing used within and between these disciplines? What is the relationship between drawing in the Arts and STEM subjects? What is our current understanding of drawing, cognition and learning, and how is it contributing to curriculum development and instructional design in these areas?

Thinking through Drawing 2012 will address these issues, exploring learning and teaching practices and new research directions. The symposium will be an active discursive platform in which we consider the place of drawing across disciplines and professions.

This international event will bring together colleagues from around the world in order to share practice and discussion across countries as well as disciplines. 

Abstracts can be submitted for papers, workshops or drawn pieces. Work may be selected for inclusion on the online platform, and/or presentation at the event.
