Peer Review

SMA & ARC Postdoctoral Researcher, Steven Duval, and SMA Videographer, Ryan Waggoner, made a film for the Hybrid Practices Conference called ‘Peer Review’. The film which was shot in November 2014 and January 2015 is comprised of interviews with Maurice Tuchman, Jane Livingston, Julie Martin, Robert Whitman, Elsa Garmire, and John Pierce. The film explores issues relating to collaborations between artists, technologists, and scientists in the historical projects of E.A.T. and Art & Technology at LACMA. These photos are from both film shoots and show Duval & Waggoner working with various interviewees who were kind enough to offer their time and sometime their homes for filming. Special thanks to Julie Martin who was instrumental in facilitating some of the interviews. The film was generously supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art.

Steve Fuller: “The promises and perils of interdisciplinary research: A long view”

Steve William Fuller (b. 1959) is an American philosopher-sociologist in the field of science and technology studies. This video (part 1 of 3 on You Tube) is a keynote lecture he gave at the Lithuanian Society of Young Researchers conference in January 2012. I particularly like his discussion of “internal” and “external” interdisciplinarity, and how those concepts are historically embedded into graduate studies at the university.
