Dr. Charissa Terranova, Associate Professor of Aesthetic Studies

The anthology D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s Generative Influences in Art, Design, and Architecture: From Forces to Forms, coedited by Dr. Charissa N. Terranova Ellen K. Levy, has been contracted by Bloomsbury Press.

In November 2017, Terranova gave the talk, “Bacteriophiles Unite! The Protean Identity Politics of Bacteria within Bioart” at the annual meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts in Tempe, Arizona. The paper was part of the panel Other Signals: Communication among Forms of Embodiment, chaired by Meredith Tromble.

In October 2017, Terranova went to the UK for research and to give a conference talk and three invited lectures. The conference talk was titled, “Space, Time, Visualization: D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson, Joseph Plateau, and the History of Art-Sci Imaging,” at the Centenary Celebration of D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s On Growth and Form, University of Dundee, in Scotland. Other talks included “Fearless Polymathy: The Morphogenic Modernism of British Art-Science-Design,” at LASER, Leonardo/The International Society for the Arts, Science, and Technology, in London and “Modeling Expanded Evolution: The Work of D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson, Stuart Kauffman, and Gemma Anderson,” at a workshop on D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson that was co-sponsored by the Lorentz Center and University of Amsterdam, Leiden, NL.
