The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw is organizing an international symposium for PhD students on research methods in art. The symposium is organized as part of the NAWA PROM program, which is carried out at the Academy in Wroclaw.

25 doctoral students representing 17 universities from 18 countries will spend next week at the Academy in Wrocław to share their knowledge on research in the field of art. Among the participants are representatives of several European countries, but also young scientists from China, India, Japan and Mongolia and Mexico. The symposium will be attended by 5 doctoral students from our University.

Participants will spend 5 days discussing and presenting their research, and will take part in workshops on intercultural communication.

The three days of the symposium will begin with theoretical lectures:

Visual intuitions in science and scientific inspirations in art - a lecture by the Dean of the Doctoral School, ac. prof. Jakub Jernajczyk, on Monday, 16 of May at 9:00 am;

Images as knowledge: from early concept picturebooks to natural science illustration - lecture by ass. prof. Anita Wincencjusz-Patyna, PhD, on Tuesday, 17 of May at 9:00 a.m;

Techno-empathy in design as an expression of concern for a better tomorrow - lecture by ac. prof. Dominika Sobolewska, on Thursday, 19 of May at 9:00 am.

The symposium is a form of study visit for 20 foreign PhD students who, together with doctoral students from Wrocław, will explore research methods in the artistic work. The Research Methods in Visual Arts Symposium is designed to support artist-researchers in their scientific work. The symposium will feature a total of 25 mini-lectures to create space for further discussion. The symposium is open to all students and lecturers who are interested in the topic of art research. A special invitation is addressed to PhD students who are currently working on their thesis.


Presentations, lectures and discussions will take place on May 16, 17, 19 and 20 from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 13:30 to 15:00 in the CSU.CI Auditorium (p. 410; 4th floor).
