A Virtual Symposium
Dates: Monday, March 5, 2007 – Tuesday, March 13, 2007
This international event created a virtual meeting space for experts from many disciplines to discuss the intersections between visual culture and the biosciences. Artists, scientists, historians, ethicists, curators, sociologists, and writers presented a variety of perspectives on topics of visual representation in art and science and its implications on culture and society. Suzanne Anker, visual artist and theorist, facilitated this online discussion. Please visit the National ACADEMIES website for more information on panel members.
