University Interdisciplinary Colloquium

Art as Research //Research for Art

DYLAN MINER, Director, American Indian and Indigenous Studies and Associate Professor, Associate Professor, Residential College in the Arts and Humanities

In his talk, geared specifically for the Interdisciplinary Colloquium, artist and scholar Dylan Miner will discuss his own artistic practice and the research methodologies that he employs within his artmaking practice, as well as the genre-crossing nature of his work. He will use his talk to think through contemporary art as an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary practice that explodes the logics of university-based disciplinarity.

Talk is from 12-1 pm.  Coffee and cookies are available and guests are invited to stay for coffee and networking following the talk.
