Call for Abstracts: Leonardo ABstracts Service (LABS) | Leonardo

Call for Graduate Thesis Abstracts

Dates or Deadline: 
22 April 2022 to 30 June 2023
Organized by: 
Sheila Pinkel








Leonardo Graduate Abstracts is an evolving, comprehensive database of graduate thesis abstracts (PhD, Master's and MFA) on topics at the intersection of the arts, sciences and technology. Persons who have received advanced degrees in arts (visual, sound, performing, text), computer sciences, the sciences and/or technology that in some way investigate philosophical, historical, critical or applications of science or technology to the arts are invited to submit an abstract of their thesis for publication consideration in this database. 

In addition to being published in the Leonardo Abstracts database, a selection of top abstracts chosen by a peer review panel is published annually in Leonardo journal and on this website. Authors of abstracts most highly ranked by the panel are also invited to submit an article for publication consideration in Leonardo. The aim of Leonardo Abstracts Service is not to duplicate existing thesis databases but rather to give visibility to interdisciplinary work, which is often hard to retrieve from existing databases.

The international peer review panel is made up of academics and artists and is chaired by Leonardo Graduate Abstracts editor-in-chief Sheila Pinkel, Emerita Professor of Pomona College.
