Explore Beauty and Science at Honors Symposium
Is there beauty in science? What insights can arise from viewing scientific theories through a lens of beauty? How does such perspective bring value to individuals and society?
These are among the interdisciplinary questions to be explored at the Renée Crown University Honors Program inaugural symposium, “The Value of Beauty and Beauty in Science.” On Tuesday, April 4, a panel will engage in discussion from 2 to 4:40 p.m. in 214 Slocum Hall, followed by a reception from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m. at the Syracuse University Art Museum in the Shaffer Art Building.
This is the first annual symposium hosted by Renée Crown Honors Endowed Professors Heidi Hehnly and Karin Nisenbaum. The College of Arts and Sciences faculty members will be featured speakers along with guests Suzanne Anker of the School of Visual Arts in New York and Angela Breitenbach of Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Anker and Breitenbach will discuss the connections between the seemingly disparate disciplines of art and science.
