Workshop: Art and Science Research in the Academic Museum

Campus museums have the potential to function as interdisciplinary laboratories, but often not the capacity or endorsement from administration to support meaningful, sustained interdisciplinary research. This becomes even more difficult at the boundary of the hard sciences versus the arts and humanities. This workshop will illustrate concrete, incremental steps to take via case studies followed by a targeted workshop where teams can workshop research proposals or early-stage projects.
