DiRosa awarded CATL Scholar grant for her project "(Un)common Partnerships for a Common Purpose"
With the grant, Samantha DiRosa will construct a cross-listed course in Art and Environmental Studies that focuses specifically on collaborations between artists and scientists. For the next two years she will conduct research with students on such collaborations as they exist outside the academy to make the course transformative, timely, and effective. This project will promote sustainability within new areas of the curriculum, create more visible bridges between culturally polarized fields of study, open up additional possibilities for interdisciplinarity, and assist in demythologizing the roles of artists and scientists in society.
