Ground Works, a2ru’s online platform for arts-integrated research, warmly welcomes thirteen new members to its Editorial Board. The new members, all representing a2ru institutions, are:

Anna Abraham
University of Georgia

Alero Akporiaye
Rhode Island School of Design

Justin Boyd
University of Texas at San Antonio

Kristin Caskey
Virginia Commonwealth University

Satu Hummasti

Melissa Noble

Scott Ordway

Seri Robinson

Justin P. Sutters

D.J. Trischler

Sanford Tweedie

This cohort joins the full Editorial Board to do the review and programmatic work that helps shape the platform. Specifically, Editors are responsible for Stage 1 review, a sometimes collaborative process in which they read and comment on submissions at the “letter of interest” stage. Editors also serve as liaisons to their institutions and fields.

a2ru campus contacts at each member institution nominate Editors. Ground Works Managing Editor Veronica Stanich comments, “I’m continuously floored by the intellectual and artistic powerhouse that is the Ground Works Editorial Board! And grateful that these extraordinary individuals lend their expertise in service of the evolving field of arts integrated research.”

Ground Works will host an open house at the 2023 a2ru conference, welcoming everyone to learn more about the platform and chat with a community of arts-integrated researchers. Ground Works Editors will be on hand to talk informally about potential submission ideas.
