Book launch: Why Science and Art Creativities Matter
February 20, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
This unique event launches the newly published book, co-edited by Prof. Pam Burnard (Cambridge University) and Dr Laura Colucci-Gray (Edinburgh University): “Why Science and Art Creativities Matter. Re-Configuring STEAM for Future-Making Education” (Brill Publishers).
Drawing on a range of theoretical perspectives, this book does more than discussing the applications of STEAM and the debates around interdisciplinary practice. This collection of chapters invites readers to discuss the contribution of education across the arts and sciences, and to re-imagine our collective futures.
The launch will introduce several of the contributing authors some of whom will present briefly on their chapters, and some International contributors will participate via video-link. We will also feature interdisciplinary and intergenerational panels who will comment on the book and link to: (i) new theoretical framings (ii) environmental sustainability (iii) and educational transformation (through teacher education).
