Arts Research Center conferences and symposia are day-long gatherings that include panels, roundtables, and workshops composed of UC Berkeley faculty,
graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows; colleagues from throughout the UC system; and visiting scholars and artists from around the Bay Area and around the world. These events usually focus on central questions being addressed by the faculty in one or more of the ARC research areas.
