2020 a2ru National Conference

The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) invites you to join us for the 2020 a2ru national conference, Land and Equity: The Art and Politics of Place, to be held online and hosted by the University of Wisconsin–Madison, starting October 15, 2020. The 2020 theme Land & Equity considers how our work as artistic, scientific, and humanist researchers and educators is defined by the land on which we find ourselves, and asks who has access to that land and its resources? In turn, we will examine how our art, research, and teaching impacts the places and spaces in which we live and work, and discuss ways that we can use that work to advance more equitable access.
