Transdisciplinary Ants + Art Week 2024

Join us for a week of exciting and transdisciplinary events about ant behaviors and neuroscience, and how art can offer a medium to connect with the queer ecologies of ant and human communities, decolonize myrmecology, and promote a vision for practice, study, and creation free of binary worldviews.

Working with Dr. Virginia Thomas from the departments of art and art history and women’s and gender studies and Dr. James (Jane) Waters from the department of biology and the neuroscience program, we organized a series of talks and workshops to bring a panel of invited speakers into conversation with students, faculty, staff, and members of our communities from across the city.

These events were supported by an interdisciplinary scholarship award from the Providence College School of Arts and Sciences and an ongoing grant from the National Science Foundation.
