Conference Website

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing demand to understand the arts in terms of research. Positing that research also exists in fields other than science and humanities, we wish to test a new form of stream at this year‘s conference of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts (SLSA). Instead of reporting on artistic research in secondary formats, we will showcase this kind of research in primary presentation forms on site, such as an exhibition, a concert, and a film screening.
