Business Meeting #491
Behavior Analysis in the Arts
Monday, May 31, 2021
7:00 PM–7:50 PM
Chair: Abigail B. B. Calkin (Calkin Consulting Center)
Presenting Authors:

The Behavior Analysis in the Arts special interest group focuses on all arts areas—visual, literary, musical, and the performance arts. Our purpose is the analysis of the arts in behavioral terms as well as the spread within ABAI of this area. In addition, this special interest group also examines behavioral descriptions, analyses, and discussions of the philosophical and theoretical areas of creativity and audience reception. This year’s meeting will focus on a live evening of art, literature, music, and performance, for the 2022 ABAI Convention in Boston. Further, we will discuss possible museum tours, concerts, and literary (plays and readings) performances scheduled to occur in Boston during the 2022 conference time. If an in-person convention meeting is not possible (due to the pandemic), we will discuss the virtual options available within ABAI for scheduled times during or after the performances for discussion of them via Zoom or another venue.
