The Social Significance of Art - A Multidisciplinary Postgraduate Conference

Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 10:00 am to 8:00 pm

Wolff Conference Room, Room D1103, Albert and Vera List Academic Center 6 East 16th Street, New York, NY 10003, Room D1103

Graduate students from all disciplines are welcome to present their work (complete or in-progress) on the potential of art and aesthetics to impact how humans perceive, relate, and act––individually or collectively.

According to the topics addressed by the student's papers, we will organize three different panels which will take place the afternoon of March 31st and throughout the day on April 1st.

Presenting at this conference gives you the opportunity to connect and discuss your work with students from other parts of The New School, such as Parsons, Lang, College of Performing Arts, Creative Writing, Media Studies, and Milano.

Abstracts (600 w max) are received on a rolling basis until March 30. E-Mail to
