In November 202, I will be presenting a workshop with the Humanistic Medicine Program at New York University Grossman School of Medicine (NYUGSOM) entitled "Dance and Science". The workshops organized by the Humanistic Medicine program explore the intersections between medicine and the humanities, arts, and social sciences. My workshop will give participants an opportunity to learn more about Bharatanatyam, my work at the intersection of arts and neuroscience (Vichaar), caregiving through the arts and sciences, and how the arts can be used as a connection between science and society.
Beauty in science, and science in the arts (post 1)
Is science beautiful? We typically do not associate science with beauty, the same way we don’t associate the arts (specifically dance) with science. Is this truly the case?
Over the next few posts, I will make a case for beauty in many if not most aspects of science. We will also explore the scientific and systematic aspects of Bharatanatyam.
Do you think science is beautiful, and that the arts have a scientific basis to them?
My name is Sloka. I am a neuroscientist and Bharatanatyam dancer; you can find more about me here.
