ASU director to give keynote at Society for Science, Literature and the Arts conference

Society for Arts, Literature and Science Conference
April 21, 2017

Sha Xin Wei, the director of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering, will give a keynote speech at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts (SLSA) in November. The school is a transdisciplinary unit at ASU formed between the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering,

“This offers an opportunity to introduce fusion practices transmuting both art and science,” Sha said.

MacKenzie Wark of The New School in New York will also give a keynote address at the conference.

In addition to Sha being tapped as a keynote speaker, this year Arizona State University will host the SLSA conference.

“For decades, SLSA has been the primary and most congenial home for scholarly collaborations and communication between the sciences, literature and the arts,” Sha said. “Together with its European sibling SLSA-EU, this has become one of the most important networks for transdisciplinarity in the world.”

Adam Nocek, assistant professor in the School of Arts, Media and Engineering, and Ron Broglio, associate professor in the department of English, will serve as site organizers for the conference.
