Image and Object: Collaborations and Confrontations in Art and Science
This experimental public workshop explores interdisciplinarity across the visual arts and the natural and social sciences. How do disciplines as disparate as neuroscience and anthropology study images and objects? What can the history of art learn from visual methods in other fields? Leading experts from Oxford will gather to discuss to the possibility, and pitfalls, of exchange.
