October 29th 2016, STEM to STEAM with Art History, San Diego Museum of Art 10am-3pm

The Art Historians of Southern California are excited to host a discussion and announce a call for proposals regarding how our discipline is uniquely positioned to transform the current obsession on STEM to include the arts and empower our campuses with STEAM.  We seek proposals related to diverse topics including: pedagogy for our classes, research in art history that integrates STEM topics and successful advocacy for our discipline. Please email proposals and a current CV to meyer_walter@smc.edu with STEM TO STEAM in the title by July 1st. Participants selected for our Fall conference will be invited to join us for our Panel Roundtable Discussion of the same topic in NYC for the CAA Feb 2017 Annual Conference.

The Art Historians of Southern California “AHSC” was founded in 1959 and is a College Art Association “CAA” affiliated organization. AHSC’s focus is to bring art historians from a variety of professional backgrounds (universities, colleges, community colleges, museums, and galleries) throughout California to engage in dialogue about the most current scholarship and professional practices in the field of art history.
