The Arts|Science Initiative encourages independent cross-disciplinary research between students in the arts and the sciences. Graduate students from areas such as art history, English, music, cinema and media studies, theater and performance, creative writing, or visual arts are encouraged to pair up with graduate students from astronomy and astrophysics, biological sciences, chemistry, computer science, geophysical sciences, math, physics, or statistics areas for joint research projects. Two of the projects from 2013–2014 are “Breaking Ice,” a collaboration between Ido Aharony (Music), Ivo Peters (Physics), and Qin Xu (Physics), and “Fiction Addiction,” a collaboration between Anya Bershad (Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences) and Bill Hutchison (English).
