Ground Works, the Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities (a2ru) peer-reviewed platform for arts-integrated research, announces a call for submissions to a special themed issue. With this issue, we ask: What are the elements necessary to create a vibrant ecology of research where art and design inquiry may flourish alongside, within, and out of social and physical science research that is so deeply embedded in research-oriented universities? We invite submissions that deepen our understanding of institutional, social, and epistemological systems that effectively weave arts-based inquiry into the scholarly fabric of research. Submissions should include concrete examples of the system or ecology in question as well as analysis or explication. Ground Works encourages a wide array of submission types that incorporate multimedia to tell the story of your vibrant ecology of research. All submissions must be received and flagged for consideration in this special issue by Friday, February 26, 2021. Contact a2ru-editorgw@umich.edu with any questions.
