Only weeks after being awarded the honorary doctorate in philosophy in Helsinki that was announced in November, Mieke Bal received an honorary doctorate in the University of the Arts London; her fourth honorary degree. It seems especially significant that these two fields, apparently (only) so far apart, both recognize Mieke’s work in both; or rather, in integration in what is today called “artistic research”. This is an outpost - again, only apparently - of Mieke’s ongoing advocacy of interdisciplinarity on which ASCA has been based, now almost 25 years ago.
