On June 9th the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) will convene key thought leaders from across the country to explore the possibility of developing a peer review platform for collaborative scholarship and research involving the arts, sciences, technology, the humanities, and other disciplines. The intersection of a variety of disciplines, which historically has had no stage upon to champion this work, is the impetus for this effort. The platform is intended to showcase arts-integrated interdisciplinary work and unify exemplars. This will allow academics to communicate the value and meaning of this work to a broad audience in a peer-reviewed space. The following attendees are confirmed:
