INSAP conferences explore the rich and diverse ways in which people of the past and present incorporate astronomical events into literary, visual, and performance arts. INSAP provides a mechanism for a broad sampling of artists, writers, musicians, historians, philosophers, scientists, and others to talk about the diversity of astronomical inspiration.
Invited speakers include Barbara Stafford, Professor of Art History, University of Chicago; Jim Kaler, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy University of Illinois; John Carswell, formerly curator of Islamic art at the Oriental Institute and Sotheby's; Donna Cox, Professor of Art and Design, University of Illinois; Mary Quinlan–McGrath, Professor of Art History, Northern Illinois University; Michael Shank, Professor of the History of Science, University of Wisconsin Madison.
