Re: [Yasmin_discussions] Fwd: The importance of physics for humanists and historians | OUPblog

Dear Roger
Thank you for posting the very interesting article by James W Corrado sent to you by Paul.
Physics is such a basic study of the world that I have thought for many years that it's findings would illuminate many other areas of human enquiry.
Hope you are well. Forgive my not sending in the essay on my early work that we spoke of in Paris. I have been so busy and also write similar for Bronac's interdisciplinary revue. Did you perhaps see my interview with Barry Miles?
Warm wishes
Liliane

IRB Barcelona Artist-in-Residence: 2018 Call


IRB Barcelona is now inviting applications for artists wishing to take place in the IRB Barcelona Artist-in-Residence Programme 2018. We are looking to welcome a professional artist, with a genuine interest in science, who is interested in working alongside our scientists to gain insight and perspective into cutting-edge research in the biomedical sciences to further their art. Artists from any discipline are welcome.

Artists interested in participating should please submit a brief proposal (2 pages max) outlining the project that they hope to develop at IRB Barcelona. Proposals may be focused on a specific theme working with specific researchers, or they can be more broad ranging, involving interactions with our scientists from a wide range of disciplines within the life sciences.

Participation in the Artist-in-Residence initiative is voluntary, and based on mutual interest. It will last for an agreed time period of up to one year. IRB Barcelona is unable to provide funding for the artist. Candidates needing financial assistance are encouraged to seek external grants to cover stipends and expenses for the duration of the residency.

Through the Artist-in-Residency Programme, IRB Barcelona can offer:




- Coordination of direct access to our scientists, at all levels, to learn about their research and methodologies, and to learn how their work connects to society
- Coordination of direct access to core facility staff for demonstrations and explanations of the technologies they use to gather, interpret and visualize data
- Access to images created in the laboratory where possible
- Facilitation of contact with our network of collaborating institutes

The Artist-in-Residence will become full member of the IRB Barcelona community and can participate in all institutional activities. He or she will also have the opportunity to:


- Participate in and provide input into the organization of seminars, round tables or workshops on themes such as the role of art in science, visualizing science, creativity, etc.
- Participate in public engagement activities such as Open House day, Science and Art events, etc.
- Apply for funding for specific activities based on the collaboration
- Promote the programme through art shows, exhibitions, networks, etc.
- Be featured through IRB Barcelona communication channels

More information about the Artist-in-Residence Programme at IRB Barcelona here. Artists interested in applying should submit the following form, together with a project proposal (maximum 2 pages) by 19 January 2018. Proposals will be evaluated by a committee for interest and feasibility, and the successful candidate will be contacted in February 2018.

Bios Ulrich Gehmann, dipl. rer. nat./lic. oec. HSG/ MA History



I live in Karlsruhe/Germany and I am one of the founding members of Ideal
Spaces Working Group. After a humanist education, I studied Biology and
Anthropology at the Universities of Zürich, Tübingen, Freiburg, and Business
Administration at the University of St. Gallen (HSG). After my professional
career, I studied History at University of Karlsruhe, Germany.

I worked in chemical industry, also in managerial positions; then in an
international consulting firm (former Coopers & Lybrand, now PwC). Here, my
emphasis was upon reorganization projects in Eastern Europe and the former
Soviet Union, including Central Asia, Pakistan, Northern Africa. Issues
covered were enterprise restructuring, institutional development &
cooperation, and policy development for ministries. I occupied several
managerial positions here, also two years in Romania as CEO for Coopers &
Lybrand's Management Consulting Division.

After that, I lectured at University of Wuppertal, business administration
and organizational dynamics; and gave seminars and multiple workshops on
dynamics and behaviour of organizations. I also was managing partner at
Particip Consultancy Group, dealing with EU-projects and the EU-organization
itself.

During my stay at University of Karlsruhe, I was Co-founder of the journal
New Frontiers in Spatial Concepts, and led a 5 year-seminar on Social
Formatting.
