Extension of the application deadline for the Iméra ICI Chair: Research & Creation - Cancer and Immunology

The application deadline for the 2023-24 call for the Iméra ICI chair: Research & Creation - Cancer and Immunology, has been extended until October 28, 2022 at 1 p.m. (French time).

The Research & Creation Chair: Cancer and Immunology aims to encourage innovative and interdisciplinary artistic research on the issues mentioned below, by highlighting the synergies between scientific research in the field of cancer and immunology and research-creation. It is a question of giving a great national and international visibility to this research at the crossroads of disciplines and regimes of knowledge. This will allow to participate in the impact of research around cancer and immunology, through arts-sciences collaborations and research-creation in this field.

The possible actions are extremely varied: cycles of conferences or participation in workshops at the crossroads of the programs "Arts & Sciences: Indisciplined Knowledges" and "Interdisciplinary Explorations", working groups transversal to the different scientific programs of IMéRA, activities and events specifically targeted for a large public and also for students (master and doctoral students) Finally, this chair will stimulate long-term collaborations with researchers from Aix-Marseille University (AMU).

Rejecting an instrumental approach to art, this chair assumes that artists produce knowledge. Focusing on creation, transmission and impact, the resident laureates of this chair will develop their research around one or more of these three fundamental axes:

  • The therapeutic use of artistic practices by clinicians in the management of cancer,
  • The social representations of cancer in relation with patients' associations and their families for the production of illustrated books, films (etc.)
  • In a more epistemological perspective, a reflection on the relations between artistic practices and clinical and/or scientific practices
