Welcome to The STEAM Journal, a transdisciplinary, global, theory-practice, peer-reviewed, open access, online journal with a focus on the intersection of the sciences and the arts. The STEAM Journal integrates perspectives from a variety of contexts and fields.
STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
In the long history of the interaction - and separation - of Arts and Science, STEAM as an acronym emerged in the early 2000s. It has been a focusing lens in developing new approaches to education and research that are better aligned with skills and mindsets for the 21st century and for addressing the complex and emerging issues of our time.
The STEAM Journal creates space and opportunity to explore how the Arts and STEM fields can cross boundaries to learn from and inform each other. Our goal is to create open dialogue and expression of art, scholarship both theoretical and empirical, teaching, and practice. In doing this, we contribute to the expanding field of transdisciplinary work. Specifically in our emphasis on STEAM, we seek to be a hub for scholars and practitioners from many disciplines who care about and work to improve our knowledge of arts-science integrations that inform policy and practice of STEAM integrations in research, education, and developing sustainable futures..
