Ocean Partnerships Speed Networking “How can engaging with the arts and humanities shape our science?”
July 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join the Ocean Partnerships network for another speed networking event over lunchtime! After a 10 minute introduction to this month’s theme, the speed networking begins and you will be paired up with another person for 5 minutes at a time over the course of the hour. A fantastic way to meet people outside your usual network! From academics, policymakers and science communicators to people from the industry and more.
This month’s theme has been chosen by Neil Banas, oceanographer and mathematical ecologist at the University of Strathclyde:
“How can engaging with the arts and humanities shape our science?”
Very often, artists are placed in the role of translators or spokespeople for finished scientific ideas. What would it look like to let engagement with the arts and humanities help shape scientific idea generation and research practice? What would the benefits be, and what are the barriers? What are the situations or problem areas where a more symmetrical relationship between practice-based arts, humanities, and science could have the biggest impact?
