Harnessing Energies in the Arts & Humanities, 12 Sept 2019


Symposium: Harnessing Energies in the Arts & Humanities

Energies in the Arts, the new collection edited by Professor Douglas Kahn (UNSW Art & Design) and published by MIT Press, explores the pluralistic concepts of energies—scientific, cultural, spiritual, ecological – as they occur in the arts, history and theory. To celebrate the release of this book, a symposium of scholars whose research intersects with, utilises, and explores various concepts of energy, will present and discuss their work with the public. The symposium is convened by Dr Heather Contant and moderated by Mitchell Ryan.

The symposium will be followed by a book launch by Joyce Hinterding (Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney) and performance by Peter Blamey.
