Art from Prehistory to Antiquity: an Interdisciplinary Approach
Stream Leaders:
Dr. Judith Charlin, Adjunct Researcher, CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council) & Professor of Archaeology, Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Philosophy & Liberal Arts, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Ms. Carolina Reznik, PhD Candidate in Art History, Faculty of Philosophy & Liberal Arts, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The aim of this stream is to encourage an interdisciplinary discussion of the multidimensional phenomenon that art is, from prehistoric times to antiquity. Various aspects are to be examined, including art materials and symbolism, taking into account the multiplicity of forms and means by which it is expressed (such as rock art, pottery, masks, body paintings, literature, theatre- the material entity of theater is an issue concerning its own nature and it will be discussed in this panel), as well as the diversity of contexts where several daily and/or cult activities were held, as shown by the archaeological findings. We intend to address issues such as cultural variations in the artistic expression, the relationship between art and myths, rituals, social hierarchies and knowledge, questions like “is art part of the human nature?”, or “is art a phenomenon embedded in Prehistory and Antiquity?” This stream’s purpose is to bring together researchers from different areas such as Archaeology, Ethnoarchaeology, Ethnography, Ancient History, Art History, Philosophy and the like.

Animation Film
Stream Leader: Dr. Pierre Floquet, Associate Professor of English & Cinema Studies, INP Bordeaux, France.
Defining animation is a long-running story, which this panel is not expecting to end, but rather to nurture. Actually the nature of the medium – in its intricate variety of expressions – calls for consistent and regular questioning. So mostly welcome, so as to foster the open-ended debate, are issues related to aesthetics, content, story-telling and theory, …, as much as hands-in papers. Focus may well be on one film, one author / director / artist / animator, one corpus, one theme, …, as long as it is considering animation as a filmic expression of its own, which somehow mirrors, blends with, relates to other art forms (live action film, theatre, literature, dancing, performance, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, architecture, …)

How Arts Can Change the World
Stream Leader: Dr. Radmila Janicic, Academic Member, ATINER & Professor, University of Belgrade, Serbia.
The panel “How Arts Can Change the World” is intended as a challenge and an opportunity to analyze in what ways arts can change the world, from a scientific, a historical and a philosophical perspective. Scientists, researchers and specialists in the fields of arts, history, antropology, ethnology, literature, psychology, diplomacy, sociology, philosophy, culture, media, marketing and communications are invited to discuss this topic. Throughout history, arts are known to have given testimony of the past and to have changed the perspective of the world’s social developments. Arts document history and they have the power to inspire, educate and motivate people to solve social problems. The goal of this panel is to encourage a holistic and multidisciplinary scientific approach of the ways in which arts can affect positively the world. The outcomes of this panel discussion could be implemented in the developing cosmopolitan society, to raise awareness about social problems, such as children’s education, children’s work, racism, discriminations, human rights on all levels. We are inviting artists, scientists, educators and researchers to participate in this panel and challenge us with insightful remarks, and with creative and innovative ideas on how arts can contribute in the construction of a trully cosmopolitan, cultivated, peaceful, worth living world.
