The symposium on methodologies in arts, design, and planning research brings together leading scholars from across the FAA disciplines to explore our methodologies as models for creative, collaborative, interdisciplinary work. This two-day symposium offers us a chance to reflect on what makes our work unique and uniquely valuable. It gives us an opportunity to articulate what our scholarship and creative practice offer to a university seeking ever more social, cultural, and intellectual creativity. Highlighting the many ways we have developed critical modes of analysis and problem solving, we celebrate the accomplishments of the past and chase unknown futures.
