2014 Fourth International CDASH Call

CDASH : Curriculum Development in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities
Leonardo Executive Editor Roger Malina and UT Dallas faculty member
Kathryn Evans are inventorying examples of courses and curricula that
are in the art-science–humanities field such as courses on art and
biology, music and mathematics, art and chemistry, dance and
environmental sciences, etc.
The current CDASH inventory is available at
http://www.utdallas.edu/atec/cdash/  includes over 130 courses.
Individuals who have taught an art-science-humanities course at the
university or secondary-school level, in formal or informal settings,
are invited to contact Kathryn Evans, with details of their
curriculum, at kcevans@utdallas.edu.  Please send the URL (if
available), title and number of the course(s), a short description,
the level offered (graduate or undergraduate) and the department(s) in
which the course(s) was offered.  We are also interested in the
“history” of your course – when it was offered, if you had any issues
with approval, and how you developed the course, lessons learned. Full
syllabi may be sent to Paul Thomas at  p.thomas@unsw.edu.au to be
included in a cloud wiki at http://artsci.unsw.wikispaces.net/.
We are interested in the broad range of all forms of the performing
arts (including music, dance, theatre and film) and the visual arts
(both traditional and new media); and connecting to all the sciences.
We are looking for submissions of in-person class room, on-line and
hybrid blended courses. We also include technology related courses
that are art-science focused.
The CDASH site also lists programs and centers that are devoted to
Art- Science-Humanities research and curriculum.
This project is overseen by a working group consisting of: Kathryn
Evans, UT Dallas, Roger F Malina, UT Dallas, Paul Thomas, University
of New South Wales, Meredith Tromble, San Francisco Art Institute and
the Leonardo LEAF Chair David Familian, University of California,
This project is co sponsored by Leonardo Education and Art Forum
(LEAF): http://www.leonardo.info/isast/LEAF.html; The ArtSciLab,
University of Texas at Dallas (UTD): https://artscilab.atec.io/
and the  College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales (UNSW)
We also bring your attention to the call for MA and PhD Thesis
abstracts in Art, Science and Technology:
The Leonardo Abstracts Service (LABS) is a comprehensive database of
Ph.D., Masters and MFA thesis abstracts on the intersection of art,
science and technology. Individuals receiving advanced degrees in
disciplines that investigate philosophical, historical or critical
applications of science or technology to the arts are invited to
submit abstracts of their theses for consideration. Selected abstracts
are published in Leonardo Electronic Almanac. Authors of most highly
ranked abstracts are invited to submit an article for publication in
Leonardo. The aim of the LABS database is to give visibility to
interdisciplinary work. Annual submission deadline: 30 June. For more
information, contact Sheila Pinkel at <spinkel@earthlink.net>.
