A multidisciplinary approach
Art is a complex phenomenon that has fascinated researchers in different fields, including philosophy, art history, theology, psychology, and neuroscience. Given this wide scholarly interest in art, the theoretical frameworks and methodologies employed by researchers can vary quite dramatically, not only across but also within disciplines.
In this seminar series, we aim to bring together researchers of different disciplines and perspectives around a set of core themes relevant to art. We believe that only through a multidisciplinary conversation it is possible to develop an integrated approach to the study of art. Our larger aim is to advance research in this field, identifying a common ground on which to deepen our understanding of art and, more generally, human nature.
