November 7–10, 2019

Student Center

University of California, Irvine

The Claire Trevor School of the Arts is hosting the 2019 annual meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts, co-organized by CTSA faculty members Antoinette LaFarge and Jesse Colin Jackson with support from 21C: The Institute for 21st Century Creativity. The SLSA 2019 theme draws attention to practices that engage with a world out of balance, in particular a range of creative, speculative, embodied, and other experimental engagements that take place at the margins of art, science, and literature. The SLSA 2019 keynote speakers are Laura Kurgan, Director of the Center for Spatial Research at Columbia University, and Andrea Polli, Professor of Art and Ecology at the University of New Mexico. SLSA 2019 is also sponsoring a talk by artist lauren woods in connection with her concurrent exhibition at the Beall Center for Art & Technology. Events include papers, panels, workshops, and a special art event in the Viewpoint Gallery.

Please consult the SLSA 2019 website, for an up-to-date schedule of events and conference registration information.
