The organisers particularly welcome comparative papers on the heraldic display of state-rooms and groups of state-rooms from different geographical, social and institutional contexts. Rather than only identifying the displayed coats of arms, contributions should address the heraldic ensembles in their entirety and locate them in their specific social and institutional contexts, aiming to further our understanding of the functions of heraldic display in the state-rooms and their visual programme. Papers can be presented in English or French. Proposals (200 words in French or English) should be sent to heraldica@uni-muenster.de by 15 December 2015.

As a celebration of the journal approaching 40 years of publication history, the papers will present a range of perspectives on the problem of images and memory, as arguably key to defining the conceptual practice of the discipline. Looking both back onto the journal’s history and forward to prospective avenues of enquiry, the papers are variously concerned with situating art-historical or visual memory across a spectrum of disciplinary concerns. The papers will pursue issues of recollection, reminiscence and memory such as the affect of nostalgia, the play of temporalities, echoes and reflections, oblivions and forgettings, or conversely the afterlives of forms, whether ephemeral or archival, in their survivals and half-lives, absences and presence; and objects such as monuments, anti-monuments or memorials, mnemonic objects or displays, souvenirs, mementoes, replicas and reproductions, fragments or ruins.

Internationally, he is remembered more widely as an art historian and exhibition maker, whose shows and writings took on major artists and movements of the 20th Century. He was a painter-writer whose painter’s “obsessions” (as he liked to call them) acted directly on his judgements as a critic-art-historian. This event is juxtaposed with a display of his pastels in The Courtauld Galleries, and will feature the screening of a documentary by award-winning film-maker Bruno Wollheim on Golding the painter. Uniquely Golding taught both at The Courtauld and in the Painting School at the Royal College of Art. The conference will have two major concerns: first, John Golding, the painter-writer, and the relationship between the practices of painting, art-writing and exhibition making in the 20th Century; second, new work in the fields about which Golding wrote. A major issue addressed will be the place of painting and of modernism in 20th Century art history. The first screening of Wollheim’s film on Friday, 4 December, will be followed by a discussion of Golding the painter, led by the sculptors Phillip King and Richard Deacon, and by two painters who were his students at the Royal College, James Mooney and Dillwyn Smith. The keynote talk by John Elderfield ranges across the history of modernism between the late 19th and the mid-20th Century, looking at three major painters, Cézanne, Matisse and de Kooning as writers. As well as the writing of 20th Century art history, exhibition curating will be a topic addressed on Saturday, 5 December, while three sessions devoted to the fields on which Golding wrote will bring together specialists with international reputations working on Cubism, Matisse, abstract painting (Mondrian, Malevich and the Abstract Expressionists), and on Duchamp, who Golding met in New York in the 1950s. Among the speakers, Dawn Ades, Elizabeth Cowling, Gavin Parkinson, John Elderfield, Christopher Green, John Milner and Sarah Wilson were all taught by Golding at The Courtauld.

As a result of the collaboration with the Institute of Art History in Würzburg the location of the conference will alternate in the future between the two venues. With the revival of the Renaissance Colloquium, initiated in 2002 in Leipzig, there will be no restriction on the geographical location of topics. The conference will engage with a wide spectrum of current art historical scholarship whilst providing an academic platform for young scholars to discuss innovative approaches to Renaissance Art. They therefore expressly welcome interdisciplinary topics and contributions from related areas of studies. The colloquium seeks to reflect on interdisciplinary methods and fields of art history, such as Visual Studies, Material Culture Studies and Digital Art History and strives also to discuss their relevance for the discipline of art history. As a consequence the 2016 venue will focus upon the way these methods are applied and facilitate new perspectives in the field of Renaissance art research. Contributions discussing collection related issues are welcome. Papers exploring the spatial context of art and culturally relevant objects and also the relationship between art and parergon are particularly encouraged.

For Voltaire it was ‘a singular desire, a passing whim’ (‘un désir singulier, un goût passager’), while for Samuel Johnson it was ‘something that pleases or entertains without real use or value’. Together with its near-synonym caprice (capriccio), fancy was part of a rich semantic network, connecting wit, pleasure, erotic desire, spontaneity, improvisation, surprise, deviation from norms, the trivial and inconsequential. Unpredictable and quirky, it offered many outlets for artistic creativity. These study days will explore the expressive freedom of fancy (fantaisie, capriccio) in European culture during the eighteenth century ? in figure and landscape painting, architecture and garden design, philosophy and fiction, theatre and music. Keynote speakers • Guillaume Faroult, Curator for 18th century Western paintings and for British and American paintings in the Louvre Museum • Martin Postle, Deputy Director of the Paul Mellon Centre for British Art. He is also a contributor to the catalogue. The Fancy-Fantaise-Capriccio conference is scheduled to coincide with an exhibition of paintings, Figures de fantaisie, at the Musée des Augustins, Toulouse, which runs from 20th November 2015 to 28th February 2016. Its subject is the fantasy figure in European painting of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. To learn more about the exhibition please visit: http://www.augustins.org/-/ceci-n-est-pas-un-portrait-presse?redirect=%2F-%2Fcommunication-et-presse During the study days, there will be a guided visit of the fantasy figures exhibition by curators Melissa Percival and Axel Hémery, Director of the Musée des Augustins. The exhibition of c. 70 paintings brings together the Venetian bravi of the Renaissance, the isolated half-length drinkers and musicians of the Caravaggisti, the tronies of Dutch painting, the pitocchi vagabonds of the bamboccianti and other naturalist painters of Italy, the Espagnolettes of eighteenth century France and the British fancy picture. Among the artists represented are A. Carracci, Lievens, Schalcken, Van Dyck, Jordaens, Hals, Sweerts, Murillo, Giordano, Crespi, Piazzetta, Tiepolo, Rotari, Santerre, Grimou, Greuze, Fragonard, Mercier, Morland and Opie. There are many meaningful points of connection between the exhibition and the study days. Both seek a broader synthetic understanding of the concept of fancy/fantaisie, and both seek in to make new connections between schools, disciplines, artistic outputs and clusters of thought. That said, Fancy-Fantaisie-Capriccio represents a deliberate choice not to replicate the exhibition or its catalogue, but rather to use it as a rich visual and conceptual backdrop for a new venture. Conference organizers • Muriel Adrien, Associate Professor at the University of Toulouse • Melissa Percival, Associate Professor in French and Art History at the University of Exeter, and guest curator. • Axel Hémery, Director of the Musée des Augustins, Toulouse For more information please visit https://fancyfantaisiecapriccio.wordpress.com/  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for papers - Transverberations: Iberian Mysticism in a Global Context]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1784 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1784 transverberations@gmail.com by December 14th, 2015.

Artists’ moving image practice is activated by the context of the gallery, by temporary architectural environments, the cinema and the internet, and by social and political performance. Over the last few decades, this kind of artistic practice – which has its roots in film, performance and installation art – has become a phenomenon in its own right. British artists and institutions have played a pioneering role in this history. From the filmmaking co-ops of the 1970s to recent exercises in digital manipulation, UK-based artists have been at the forefront of artistic experimentation, distribution, and exhibition. This has particularly been the case since the 1990s, when a mixture of artist support agencies and galleries such as LUX, Film and Video Umbrella, FACT, Film London and Channel 4 began re-aligning funding interests and supporting artists’ moving image work. Despite being showcased and discussed by arts and cultural organizations and academics, this field has not been fully explored or historicised. Featuring keynote lectures and panel discussions with leading specialists – artists, curators, film historians, art historians and critics – the purpose of this conference is to map the recent history of this dynamic strand of visual culture within a British context, and to develop new scholarly research through thematic discussions and close readings of selected works and artists.

This has become significantly more pressing in the light of developments during the last few months, whereby borders, and the complex situation of the multitude of people crossing borders, have become increasingly visible as urgent political issues. Borders have long functioned as a vital component of state-formation and nation building, a role that continues within the shifting politics of globalisation. We have seen recently that their significance is thus subject to ongoing redefinition through a dynamic between a repressive politics of containment and attempts to challenge this. Within these zones of contestation, relationships between geographies and power become both clearly visible and subject to dispute. And although this functions on one level in terms of collective experience, the effects on individuals are also destructive and traumatic. Recently there has been an upsurge in art practices that visualise the tensions and contradictions arising from contemporary borders. However art can also function as a means of disruption and intervention within the established operations and normative meanings of border technologies, and as a site of reparation, where traumatic histories can be negotiated in turn. This one day symposium attempts to address these and related issues.

It witnessed the championing of the 'New Generation' sculptors at the Whitechapel Gallery under the directorship of Bryan Robertson, although a much fuller and richer image of sculpture that year is to be seen retrospectively today. This two-day international conference, staged at Leeds Art Gallery, The Hepworth Wakefield and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, revisits sculpture made and displayed that year, not only through a reconsideration of the achievements of the forty-one year old Anthony Caro, but also through those of many other sculptors who were active at this time in Britain. Friday 25 September 2.00-6.00pm Leeds Art Gallery Saturday 26 September 10.00-5.30pm Longside Gallery, YSP and The Hepworth Wakefield Tickets: One day: £10 / £5 concessions Two days: £20 / £10 concessions Ticket cost includes wine reception on Friday, tours of exhibitions at Longside and The Hepworth Wakefield, lunch on Saturday, and return transport from Leeds to both venues.

Applicants are encouraged to consider a wide range of methodologies in consideration of viewership and the medieval work of art, from original display environments or the significance of works that were partially hidden out of view, to the impact of other sensory experiences that once contributed to the interaction with and viewing of a work of art. Speakers may also wish to explore differences in medieval and modern categories of viewers and of viewing environments, such as the church or the modern museum. Additionally, participants may also address the extent to which God or the spirit realm were considered participatory audience members, or an object’s apotropaic properties against the seen and unseen. The Medieval Postgraduate Colloquium offers the opportunity for research students at all levels from universities across the UK and abroad to present and promote their research. Unfortunately funding for speakers is not available therefore students from outside London are encouraged to apply to their institutions for subsidies to attend the colloquium. Please send proposals for 15 to 20-minute papers of no more than 250 words and a CV to Maeve.Odonnell@courtauld.ac.uk and bkeene@getty.edu (Bryan Keene), no later than Friday 2 October 2015.

The period’s prestige is based largely on the achievements of the early Renaissance in Italy, and although this concentration has not gone unchallenged, the contest has itself been conducted in narrow terms with the art of the Burgundian Netherlands as the main contender. Art away from these privileged regions tends to remain the preserve of national histories and is comparatively little known. This international conference, supported by the British Academy, casts light on neglected aspects of European art and urges a wider frame of reference. The history of Renaissance art in general has long been urged to adopt a wider scope and especially to engage with the world beyond Europe. However, the leap to a global focus threatens to marginalize still further currently neglected parts of Europe, and it would be a missed opportunity if the discipline failed to engage with Europe at its fullest extent and especially with the ‘new Europe’ which has emerged after 1989. The conference concentrates on Central and Eastern Europe as rich and complex regions of critical importance in the modern world but whose artistic heritages are little known and little understood. The first day, 17 September, comprises a series of presentations which highlight the variety and richness of the art of the period and raise the question of what can be gained by the sustained study of an expanded range of material. Attendance is free and open to all but booking is essential. To book a place please visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/frontiers-of-fifteenth-century-art-international-conference-tickets-17582949074 The second day, 18 September, provides an extended opportunity for discussion. Taking the presentations of day one as a starting point, the event will invite participants to consider why we study what we study in the history of the visual arts of this period, and why it matters. Attendance is free but numbers are limited.

They are inviting two types of proposals: - 20-minute papers for a scholarly panel that respond to the CFP (see below) entitled “Method, Material and Meaning: Technical Art History and the Study of Prints” - 5-minute presentations for the Graduate Student Lightning Round. Proposed papers should come from current graduate students at the dissertation stage. Interested participants are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words along with a CV or brief biographical statement by August 15 to symposium@printscholars.org. Please indicate in the subject line which type of paper (scholarly session or lightning round) you are proposing and apply to only one session type. Non-members may submit abstracts, but presenters must be APS members by the time of the symposium. Method, Material, and Meaning: Technical Art History and the Study of Prints Technical art history, an interdisciplinary methodology with growing popularity among scholars, curators, and conservators, draws connections between an object’s making and its interpretation. The application of technical art history to the study of prints is particularly fruitful as printmakers often draw upon diverse and complex techniques in order to generate imagery. From the sixteenth-century engravings of Hendrik Goltzius, who skillfully imitated other media, to the prints of contemporary artist Kiki Smith, who produces fleshy bodies on thin, skin-like Gampi paper, printmakers throughout history have engaged a variety of processes and materials in order to elicit particular ideas, emotions, or interactions. The selection of technique, matrix, ink, varnish or support may have a profound effect on the final product and its meaning. This conference seeks to investigate the relationship between specific technical choices made by printmakers, printers, or publishers in order to rethink more broadly the relationship between process, material and meaning in the graphic arts. We seek papers that focus on a wide range of chronological periods and geographic locations in order to highlight overarching methodological issues. Questions to consider: - How can technical analysis aid in understanding artists’ strategic decisions, including their use of printmaking within a larger multimedia practice? - What can conservation science tell us about the life and contemporary importance of a print? - How has print scholarship grown beyond connoisseurship, towards a more holistic account of engagement with the viewer? - How does the transfer of information from the matrix to the receiving surface affect the resulting imagery and its significance?

Edgar Degas 1834-1917, the French Impressionist painter, lithographer, etcher and sculptor, is known for his virtuosic chalk and graphite technique. Sessions introduce the historically specific materials and technique of a particular master draughtsman-or-woman. This involves not only the composition and handling of certain tools but also the mind set of the artist: what he-or-she looked for, valued, prioritised in representing the human figure. Each session will involve short demonstrations by Theo Rhyn interspersed with experimentation time along with optional one to one feedback at the easel. Future sessions will include artists from Michelangelo and Ingres to Oskar Schlemmer and RB Kitaj.

This research has provided histories of Africa in the Italian imaginary and of the work of Italian artists, writers, architects, filmmakers, and other cultural practitioners who visited Italian colonies in Italian North Africa (Africa Settentrionale Italiana, or ASI; Libya, briefly Tunisia and western Egypt) and Italian East Africa (Africa Orientale Italiana, or AOI; Somalia, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and the Greek Dodecanese Islands), providing an Italian cultural history in and around Africa. By contrast, however, relatively little attention has been given to African cultural engagements with Italian colonialism, especially in the field of art history, where it has been all but absent. Indeed, in spite of recent efforts in literary and architectural studies to account for these missing histories, an Africanist history of the rich and diverse artistic, performance-based, and cinematic practices that negotiated, resisted, and responded to Italian colonialism has yet to be provided. This panel addresses this gap in the art historical discourse by inviting papers on the active navigation of Italian colonialism and its legacies by African artists on the Continent and in the Diaspora. Rather than privileging the historical timeline of Italian imperial rule, it welcomes topics that also engage pre- and post-colonial histories, from the mid-nineteenth century through the present. In so doing, the panel aims to provide a platform for the constellation of an Africanist history of these practices that will balance, complicate, and respond to a growing scholarly field that––despite the excellence of its research––has nevertheless prioritized histories of the colonizing culture. Paper topics might include: Legacies of Italian colonialism, cultural institutions and nationalism in the former AOI and ASI; art and activism, both anti-colonialist and nationalist; the Mahber Tewasew Deqqabbat (Indigenous Theater Association) and Eritrean cultural activism; African neo-realism in Somali, Ethiopic, or Maghrebi cinemas; African comic books and Italian fumetti; the negotiation of African and Italian identity and cultural hybridity in contemporary African art; and the problem of documentation and the artistic reconstruction of colonial histories of north and east Africa, among others. Papers on architectural topics are also welcome, but should prioritize discussion of African architecture over the colonialist built environment. Submission Guidelines for Speakers: Proposals should include a 250–500 word abstract, one-page CV including contact information (as well as summer address and telephone, if applicable), and a completed CAA session participation proposal form, available on the last page of the CAA 2016 Call for Participation (http://www.collegeart.org/pdf/2016CallforParticipation.pdf). Complete proposals should be submitted via e-mail to Tenley Bick at tenleybick@gmail.com by 9am PST, Friday, Jun. 19, 2015. This panel is free and open to the public.

However, Rodin’s own developments were challenged by his successors and marginalised contemporaries who further pursued the aesthetic revolution catalysed by the French master sculptor. The conference’s objectives include the task to see how this new language related to various daring exponents of sculpture such as the Italian Medardo Rosso (1858-1928), the more recent Swiss sculptor Hans Josephsohn (1920-2012), the Maltese contemporaries Antonio Sciortino (1879-1947) and Josef Kalleya (1898-1998) and the abstract monumentality of Henry Moore (1898-1986), amongst others. The conference aims to create a trans-cultural scholarly relationship between the mentioned European sculptors and other relevant artists. It endeavors to question and debate the artistic hegemonic relationship between Rodin and these sculptural exponents. The conference is to further analyse the works of those pioneering sculptors who directed art towards original modes of representation within their respective socio-political situation and the international context. With the participation of: Prof. Aline Magnien (Rodin Museum, Paris) Dr. Julia Kelly (Loughborough University) Prof. Joseph Paul Cassar (University of Maryland University College) Dr. Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci (University of Malta) Academics and researchers are invited to submit proposals for papers which deal with the theme of the conference.

The Project (https://eticproject.wordpress.com/ ) studies Indian cities as crucibles of cross-cultural encounter, with special focus on Goa, Pondicherry, Kolkata, and Chandigarh. Over the past two years, with numerous seminars, research projects, lectures and presentations, and two International Workshops held in Kolkata and Liverpool, the Project has brought together a variety of interdisciplinary approaches to urban studies, cultural history, on-site research, archives, city planning, architecture, the city in art and representation, collective memory and communities in the city. In the third International Workshops, held at Jadavpur University on 17-18 August 2015, papers are welcome for presentations on urban encounters and exchanges through individual and community histories and histories of objects (people and things), through city-spaces, buildings, streets, water-bodies, and their transformations (places) and through forms of ‘envisioning the city’ (plans). The Workshop will be open to reflections to other Indian cities in addition to our designated four in order to allow for comparative reflections and insights. Themes for papers and panels may include, but are not restricted to, the following: • Individuals, objects, and communities in the city: traces, stories, anecdotes, histories, intercultural exchanges • Space and place in the city: localities, buildings, suburbia, streets, docks, water-bodies, representations • Planning the city: health, sanitation, garbage, networks, roads, the urban sprawl Presenters are asked to focus particularly on cross-cultural encounters and exchanges between Europe and Asia in developing any of these or other topics, in keeping with the ETIC Project theme.

The international summer school “Critical Studies in the Art Market” brings together established experts from art sociology, art economics and art theory, all of whom have contributed landmark research in this emerging field. During an intense workshop-based programme over 5 days, participants will have the unique chance to get a first hand insight into leading research in the field. The workshops are guided by Bruno Frey (Center for Research in Economics, Management and the Arts, Switzerland), Franz Schultheis (Chair of Sociology, University of St. Gallen, Switzerland) and Karen van den Berg (Chair of Art Theory and Curating, Zeppelin University). Drawing on their expertise they will allow insights into their current research projects. The focus will be on providing students with ideas and methodologies with which to tackle the pressing questions and to examine critically existing approaches within the field. Both Master’s and PhD students will be able to gain new understandings into the range of possibilities for research within this area. The summer school will be completed by an excursion to Art Basel, generally considered the most important art fair in the world.

It aims to map the state of the field in this growing area of interest for nineteenth-century scholars by locating recent interdisciplinary work on sentimentality and art and writing and the senses within wider debates about the relationship between psychology and aesthetics in the long-nineteenth century. Speakers will investigate the physiology and psychology of aesthetic perception and the mind/body interactions at play in the experience of a wide range of arts. Key questions include: How did Victorian artists represent feeling and how were these feelings aestheticised? What rhetorical strategies did Victorian writers use to figure aesthetic response? What expressive codes and conventions were familiar to the Victorians? Which nineteenth-century scientific developments affected artistic production and what impact did these have on affective reactions? The conference includes a panel discussion on the topic of ‘Curating Feeling’ with speakers Michael Hatt, Lynda Nead and Alison Smith.

Jon Schueler’s decision to move to a remote location in the Scottish Highlands at the height of his ascendancy in the New York artworld was based on a chance meeting and the notion of a promised land. In 1957 when he was showing as an Abstract Expressionist artist with the Leo Castelli Gallery, New York, he moved to the village of Mallaig overlooking the Sound of Sleat. Schueler’s confrontation with the Highland seascape was an intense, emotional experience but his response finds articulation in a remarkably controlled gestural language. At one stroke he lifts the approach to the Scottish landscape out of the drawing room with all its picturesqueness, its ancientness, its ethnographical oddities, its ‘otherness’ into another scale, another intensity, another presence, another ‘self’. Kenneth White in writing about living a “transnational atopia” quotes from Roger Caillois: “In any constituted symmetry, a partial and non-accidental break can occur … Its effect is to enrich the structure or the organism in which it arises by endowing them with a new property” (White’s emphasis). The balancing of a language of abstraction with a response to the landscape or seascape has occupied artists on both sides of the Atlantic throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers are invited that engage with current scholarship to provide a theoretical, historiographical or methodological account of this discourse. Papers may discuss any artists or collections in the light of this discourse, but it is to be noted that the papers will feature in the context of a symposium focused on Jon Schueler. The life and work of Jon Schueler (1916 – 1992) is being celebrated by hosting the international symposium at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, The University of the Highlands and Islands, on the Isle of Skye. A small exhibition of Schueler artworks will accompany the symposium and extend through the month of June. Submitting a Proposal Deadline: 30 June 2015 Proposals should include: • A title and abstract (maximum 250 words) • The name, contact details and institutional affiliation of the author. Email your proposals to Symposium Convenor: Lindsay Blair: lindsay.blair.moray@uhi.ac.uk www.jonschueler.com www.smo.uhi.ac.uk]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Glazed Expressions: Contemporary Art and Ceramics (a roundtable)]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1658 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1658 Saturday 6 June, 2 - 4.30 pm The Hepworth Wakefield Free to students £5/£4 booking essential Organised with Dr. James Boaden of the University of York Speakers: Aaron Angell (Troy Town Art Pottery), Emma Hart, Phil Root, (The Grantchester Pottery), Jesse Wine. A collaboration between The University of York and The Hepworth Wakefield The Hepworth Wakefield is currently staging the first UK retrospective of the American artist Lynda Benglis. Since the 1960s she has explored the materiality of a wide range of media including wax, polyurethane, bronze, textiles, glass, and clay. Benglis trained as a ceramicist early in her career, returning to the medium in the 1990s and the exhibition foregrounds this work as an integral part of her practice. This roundtable will use Benglis' ceramic works as a point of departure for looking at the use of the medium by artists working outside of the field of craft in the UK. The backdrop of Studio Ceramics provides a further context given The Hepworth Wakefield's continuing exploration of British Modernism and the proximity of York's newly established CoCA (Centre of Ceramic Arts). However, while the relationship between British Studio Ceramics and its place within modernist discourse is an important reference point for many contemporary artists working in the UK today, others take their influence from elsewhere, for example the Californian Funk ceramics of artists like Keith Arneson or expressionist works of Peter Voulkos. This roundtable brings together contemporary practitioners whose work uses ceramics to encourage discussion around a series of questions: Why are ceramics so visible within contemporary artistic practice today? What is the role of the collective or workshop model in contemporary practice? What is the relationship between craft and art now? Is the ceramic medium wedded to traditional forms?

Article-length manuscripts might inquire how museums and archives are critically and creatively problematizing belonging and possession; or consider the ways they make known that collections belong to their institutions or how collections are no longer owned or controlled by them or by previously identified makers, collectors, donors, or sites of origin; how and why collections have lost connections to cultural, social or political groups such as schools, workshops, families, communities, organizations, or nation states; and the ways, correspondingly, that museums and archives alter how collections are known, valued, displayed, taught, or remembered. We aim to identify examples and practices by which museums and archives problematize their investments in collections and these collections’ histories, lineages, ways of knowing and being, and the reception and memories they encourage. Papers are invited from curators, archivists, collections managers, preparators, registrars, researchers, and graduate students relating to these themes. Papers are also invited that: consider the manner with which possessing or dispossessing collections relates to changes in the identity of an institution, its staff and scholarship, or its donors or programs; analyze how museums and archives revise the ways their collections contribute to them economically or culturally, or reconsider how they belong to an institution through the scholarly, pedagogic, or political value they impart; convey the power of collections to affiliate with or dispossess scholarly or lay accounts of their history or use; and examine how narratives of display, exhibition or publication reinforce or alter the ways collections belong to a museum, archive, place, community, or to a body of knowledge or a field. Interested authors should contact the editors to express interest by July 1, 2015. The deadline for submission is September 30, 2015. Publication is anticipated for volume 12 of Collections, with an issue date of 2016.

This session proposes a critical interrogation of the diverse histories of French art since 1780 to the present day. The convenors welcome papers that look outside of, challenge, or run counter to hegemonic narratives. What critical possibilities (if any) remain for the study of French art’s modernities? They encourage approaches that interrelate the histories of specific images, objects, or narratives with reflection on the writing of those histories, or on broader historiographical tendencies, so that a set of fresh perspectives may emerge on this enduring yet highly mutable relationship between art history and modern France. Deadline for submission of proposals to session chairs 8 May 2015.

While none of his works on paper survive, research conducted in the past decade by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure and the Sherman Fairchild Paintings Conservation Center at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has revealed Piero’s obsessive working and reworking of compositions. Disegno, in the period sense of the term, was also a problem-solving tool, a catalyst for invention, and an effective means of communication. Problems raised by Piero’s earliest known work, the Baptism (National Gallery, London) which was part of the San Giovanni d’Afra triptych (Museo Civico, Sansepolcro), introduce the practical and conceptual implications of Piero’s approach to disegno and will serve to open this conference. The following sessions will be dedicated to the composition of his frescoes, the role of underdrawings in his paintings, the use of geometrical figures in his mathematical treatises, and the transmission of his style. Keynote Speaker: Professor Emeritus James R. Banker (North Caroline State University) Confirmed Speakers: Carmen Bambach (The Metropolitan Museum of Art), Roberto Bellucci (Opificio delle Pietre Dure), Ciro Castelli (Opificio delle Pietre Dure), Frank Dabell (Temple University, Rome), Francesco P.

The image of the artist as an individual of exceptional vision and allure endures, provoking interest in the artist ‘behind’ the work. Recognizing the agency of this appeal, both within the clear frame of artistic production and in so-called public life, artists have employed their ‘selves’ as raw material – as an instrument or a medium – to present, stage, modify, amplify, fictionalize, or critique. When consistent over time, such self-presentations imply the creation of a persona: a fusion of natural identity and artificiality, role-playing and theatrical enactment. This issue Kunstlicht investigates the hidden tradition of personas in art history. The editorial board welcomes theoretical essays as well as (comparative) case studies. Authors may propose topics as diverse as (re)definitions of ‘persona’, (re)contextualizations of existing biographies, parallels with other art forms and non-artistic cases, or discourse analyses. Proposals (200 – 300 words) with attached résumés can be submitted until April 14, 2014. Selected authors will be invited to write a 2,000 – 3,000-word paper (excluding notes). Papers may be written either in English or in Dutch, although they insist that native Dutch speakers write in Dutch. Authors who publish in Kunstlicht will receive three complementary copies. Kunstlicht does not provide an author’s honorarium. Two years following publication, papers will be submitted to the freely accessible online archive. This issue will appear in print, and additionally will feature a number of articles published online.

Building upon the technical findings of the Reynolds Research Project at the Wallace Collection, and also on a range of recent conservation projects on Reynolds’s paintings, it will explore his distinctive manipulation of paint as a medium. Papers will offer new perspectives on Reynolds’s experimental forms of pictorial composition, narrative and allusion, and to look afresh at the dynamic interactions between the artist, his sitters and his models in the studio. As well as focusing on Reynolds’s own art in detail, the conference seeks to place his experimental activities within the context of wider artistic, cultural and scientific practices of the eighteenth century. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite - General Admission: £65 (+ admin fee) - Concession: £45 (+ admin fee) Refreshments, lunch and a drinks reception are included in the ticket price.

In the visual arts surface has often been seen as sources of meanings and visual information or a self-contained aesthetic whole, exclusively associated with decoration or ornamentation. Jeff Koons prompts us to grapple with what is manifest in the world of objects: skins, materials, even picture planes and varnishes. Koons’ metal ‘balloon animals’ and ‘cartoonish’ mirrors can offer a point of departure to think about the wider field of the weight of surface effects. While certain kinds of object are often treated as if they lack a surface, or are read as entirely ‘surface’. Certain objects prompt us to think about the skin that enfolds them and yet others seem to blind us to their interior. From new developments in Phenomenology and Affect Theory to New Materialism and Thing Theory, they welcome papers which challenge received ideas concerning ‘surface’ in a variety of historical and contemporary contexts. The Sainsbury Centre for Modern Art, UEA and Norwich Castle Museum welcome diverse papers on art historical and visual cultural subjects, thinking through the idea of ‘Surface’. They encourage submissions which critique the idea of surface as supplement, and which engage related concepts such as: friction, edge, depth and (in)visibility. This one-day conference will include guest speakers and an introductory tour of Norwich Castle Museum’s new Jeff Koons exhibition, as well as coffee, a drinks reception and an optional lunch. To submit a proposal for a 20-minute presentation, the require an abstract not exceeding 300 words and a brief professional biography of 100 words by 25th March 2015.

The night has been conceptualized, within poetic and scholarly works, as territory, parenthesis, substance and scène: Likewise, the night has inspired distinctive categories of artistic expression, from the musical and visual nocturne through the film noir. Recently, cartographies of the urban night offer increasingly complex ways of rendering that night in visual or audiovisual terms. All of these treatments of the night are engaged, explicitly or implicitly, in defining a broader expressive economy of the night.

McGill Art History and Communication Studies Graduate Student Conference, Canada]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1612 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1612 Conference Date: April 24, 2015. McGill University, Montréal. What is silence? How is it kept or broken? Silence is often used to describe who and what is repressed and subjugated: “being silenced” and “not having a voice.” This conference aims to explore the relations between silence, the unspeakable and the unheard, as well as the ways in which silence is represented, interpreted, and subverted. If silence has become a form of quiet consent in an age where power and language are one, how can we rethink silence as an expression of resistance or subversion? By creating a silent space where the voices of the “unspoken” can be heard, how can silence resist and subvert dominant discourses? How can we be attuned to the cacophony of silences and their multiple meanings? They invite graduate students, academics, artists, activists, and independent researchers to submit 20-minute conference paper proposals that address silence and various forms of silencing as object of study, metaphor, and methodology. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: -Silenced Subjectivities -Feminist/Critical Race Theory Critiques of Language and Considerations of Silence -Silence as Exclusion and/or Violence -Silenced Histories -Quiet Forms of Resistance -Body Talk/Body Language -Political Silence and Political Silencing -Sounds and/of Silence -The Aesthetics of Silence -Silence and the Urban Soundscape -Silence and Architecture, Visual Art, Cinema, Dance, Theatre and Performance. -The Practice of Censorship/Anonymous Authorship -Considerations of Deafness and Disability -The Time of Silence -Critiques of the Concept of Silence Contact and further information details: ACHS Conference Committee: ahcs2015@gmail.com; https://ahcsconference.wordpress.com/ Deadline for booking or submission: Paper proposals (max 500 words) should be sent to ahcs2015@gmail.com by March 1st, 2015.]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Research Curator, Turner Contemporary ]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1611 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1611 The Waste Land is an exhibition inspired by T.S Eliot’s seminal 20th Century poem, through which we will develop a new research model that involves coordinating a number of research volunteers from our local community.

Proposals should be no longer than 300 words. The premise of this conference is that consideration of the Delphic maxim can be productively channeled into interrogating the role of the image in relation to the self: How might images mobilise the philosophical challenge to “know thyself”? What are the mechanisms within images that invite participation in the practices of self-discovery and self-representation? The conference aims to explore the role of visuality in the early modern pursuit of self-knowledge in a broad sense. As such, it invites approaches to visual material by which the Delphic maxim is evoked knowingly, or otherwise. Focusing on images from the period c.1500-c.1800, proposals for papers may include, but are by no means limited to: mortality and bodily materiality, cultural identity and difference (race, religion, gender…), subjectivity and self-fashioning, and encounters with the new world and new technologies.

Dresser is a specific example of a designer influenced by the technological advances of the nineteenth century. He is also representative of the ways in which cultural and scientific forces shaped Victorian values and behaviours. How can a greater awareness of these contexts help us to understand both Dresser’s and other designers’ work more easily? The aim of this symposium is to consider new research which may serve to contextualise Victorian design generally, and the work of Dresser specifically. Notably, • The influence of Japanese, Chinese and Asian travels, writings and artefacts. • The nature and impact of scientific writings and studies. • The role of the art and design schools and museums • The role of pattern books and ‘artistic’ publications. The Christopher Dresser Society is keen to receive submissions from scholars and connoisseurs working in areas within and beyond art and design history. Submissions from historians of science (botany), travel, museology, collecting, pedagogy, connoisseurship and publishing are actively encouraged to contribute. The Society will distribute the symposium proceedings via the Christopher Dresser Society website. Discussion is also under way for select papers to be published in an appropriate publication.

Its primary aim is to foster exchange between scholars working on different European regions, ranging from the German-speaking areas of Europe, across the Italian peninsula to the still heavily understudied material in England, Spain, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. The speakers will examine female monastic art and architecture in terms of devotion and ritual, patronage, space, communal identity and artistic practice.

The conference seeks to reimagine the artwork as a space of compossibility in which multiple worlds, both real and potential, past and future, coexist. The present conference invites papers to intermix different scales of worlds, from the world in miniature to a world in collapse. Recent debates in art history have emphasised the artwork’s potential to represent global phenomena: conflict, ecological catastrophe and the flows of capital. Lost in these discussions is the fact that the artwork may also be understood as a world in and of itself. The artwork is of this world, but it is not reducible to it. From the sculptural practice of Camille Henrot to the performances of Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, attention paid to the particularity of the artwork reveals its potential to actualize speculative fictions in which worlds are formed and collapsed. Though the period addressed by the conference finds its beginnings with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, an event that for many heralds the era of globalisation, Working Worlds also invites papers that draw lines of continuity between the modern and the post-modern, and thereby seek to challenge existing narratives that draw too firm a line between these historical periods. Working Worlds proposes three panels with topics not exclusively related to: 1. The work of the artwork / worldmaking / the artwork as theory 2. Artistic labour / digital labor / artwork as situation / artwork as event / cognitive mapping 3. Institution / artworld / capitalism as global process Speakers should be prepared to present papers for 25 min followed by a discussion.

This conference is motivated by the premise that it is appropriate for feminist art history to re-visit and newly configure theoretical, methodological and political debate around modernist, postmodernist and contemporary artistic practice in relation to the domestic. Having been a significant focus of 1980s feminist art-historical scholarship, domesticity has since been eclipsed in feminist analysis by focus on corporeality, subjectivity and globalisation, amongst other significant concepts. This conference seeks to evaluate the intellectual and political gains, and potentially losses, to be made from investing once again in existing feminist theoretical frameworks, including the materialist, the psychoanalytical and the postcolonial. It also invites contributions framed by alternative or more recent modes of feminist enquiry, including those constituted through the framework of artistic practice itself. The sexual politics of domestic, artistic, and scholarly labour, productive agency, and the obedient or disobedient domestic imaginary might constitute one focus, however, these are by no means the only or defining parameters of this conference’s aim to engage with a feminist politics and practice of home making and unmaking since the late nineteenth century.

The publication intends to further this discussion by emphasizing aspects of cultural history so as to reveal the paradigmatic nature of projection. Special attention will be paid to issues of reception, that is, to the uses of projection, the ways in which it has been conceived and represented, as well as to the metaphorical uses of the term “projection.” From geometry to science fiction and alchemy, the many meanings of projection extend beyond the notion of an optical device while at the same time add to our understanding of the latter.

This one-day symposium will address the hand both as the means and the subject of representation in Early Modern art and visual culture. Traditionally held to be subordinate to the creative drive of the mind, the artist's hand may also be considered as an autonomous agent, manifesting itself through individual style, the manipulation of media or as an iconographic motif. How did artists conceive the relation between intellectual and manual labour? How was the human hand represented in different contexts, from scientific treatises to portraits and drawing manuals? Papers will investigate the role of drawing in artistic training, as well as the representation of gesturing in complex pictorial compositions. A workshop with Linda Karshan, an artist whose practice revolves around the exploration of the process of drawing, will allow the participants to move beyond the early modern period and examine the status of the hand in contemporary artistic practice.   Organised by Aust?ja Mackelait? and Camilla Pietrabissa (The Courtauld Institute of Art).

How are the exhibitions that are being re-staged and/or written about, being selected? What are the criteria of selection, in other words: how is the canon of exhibition history being established? What does the current trend of exhibition re-enactment add to the art historical appreciation of these exhibitions? And what does it imply for the field of art history and curating/exhibition making? Are we simply re-iterating an already written art history, or does exhibition history allow for other and/more critical tools to approach history. In other words: what is the surplus value of the turn to exhibition history in both theory and curatorial practice? They are inviting contributors to critically reflect on the influence of the rereading of museum exhibitions on the canon of modern and contemporary art, and the (im)possibilities of rewriting art history through the re-enactment of historical exhibitions.

By mapping the pop phenomenon from a global perspective – encompassing pop art produced in the 1960s and 1970s in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, as well as Western Europe and the US – the exhibition will seek to challenge historiographic narratives that affirm the dominant position of New York art and will explore pop beyond the mainstream.   The often ambivalent and subversive nature of these global manifestations of pop is of particular importance. Reacting to the growing dominance of the American post-war economy and media around the world, pop art sometimes took the form of a destabilising reversal of the normative messages associated with American mass culture and consumerism. By surveying these global engagements with pop, the exhibition will offer an opportunity to re-examine pop’s origins and politics, as well as question its existence and significance as a global movement. To accompany this exhibition, Tate Papers aims to publish a range of scholarly articles addressing pop as a truly global phenomenon. Tate Papers is an online, peer-reviewed research journal that publishes scholarly articles that reflect Tate’s collection, exhibitions and activities as an art museum. If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact the Managing Editor, Christopher Griffin, at christopher.griffin@tate.org.uk. Articles accepted for publication following peer review will be published in the autumn issue of Tate Papers in 2015.

Therefore, the art market should be an integral part of the art historical dialogue today, not a mere external factor. Yet, art history as a field is falling behind by not considering the market seriously within the context of its own discipline. The aim of this conference is to redefine the role of the market in the critical approach to art history. The organisers encourage art historians and those of other humanities disciplines to analyze the art market manifestations in approaches other than solely numerical. Crossing-over different fields of expertise and methodologies can inform the way art historians engage with art and the markets. Suggested topics include the following: • Do markets function as a lens through which to examine issues of gender, race, globalization and class? • The role of connoisseurship in a market-driven art world • Do art markets in emerging countries reflect regional or global values on aesthetics, culture or capital? In addition to these suggested topics, the organisers invite any new approaches or methodological proposition to frame discussions of the market and the practice of art history as a discipline. This symposium encourages submissions that consider a wide range of topics, all of which privilege the interaction between art, institutions, patrons and collectors with the market. Papers should be approximately 20 minutes in length. Visual presentations are mandatory. Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to Veronique Chagnon-Burke at vchagnon-burke@christies.edu.

An active member of the universities and colleges group (as it then was) and Editor of the Bulletin (1974–77), Andrew was a familiar presence and contributor at AAH conferences through the 1980s and 1990s. Having commenced his teaching career at Portsmouth College of Art and St Martin’s, before taking up a lectureship in History of Art at the University of Manchester in 1972 (Professor 1997, Professor Emeritus 1998), Andrew was singularly well fitted to build the bridges that were much needed following the Coldstream and Summerson reports of 1960 and 1963, which addressed the importance of Art History and complementary studies in art schools. On graduating from Cambridge in 1962, Andrew worked as a freelance art critic, completing his PhD on Paul Nash at the Courtauld Institute in 1973. This breadth of approach to understanding the visual arts and to writing about them, and his profound interest in contemporary art practice, remained with Andrew throughout his life and is manifest in his many publications on 20th-century British art (sculpture since 1945, Edward Burra, Peter Lanyon, Paul Nash, Ivon Hitchins, Barbara Hepworth, Edward Wadsworth, Mark Gertler, Wyndham Lewis, Harold Gilman, amongst others). Andrew always knew what was going on in the art world and seldom missed a show, whether with a dealer or in a public gallery. Thanks to the dedicated care of his wife, Sue Causey, a distinguished Russian linguist who predeceased him by a couple of weeks following a tragic accident, Andrew was able to spend his final days at home where he looked from his bed at a Peter Lanyon on the wall and out to a garden full of roses. Andrew Causey served as internal examiner for my PhD in 1974 because my supervisor by that time had retired. I remember being very nervous when faced with him and the external, Professor Andrew McLaren Young from Glasgow. Andrew was courteous and charming, characteristics that never left him; those who visited him during his last illness were often astonished by his ability to remain a gracious host from his hospital bed. Educated at Eton and Cambridge, he knew how to engage people and how to make the most of a sense of occasion; it is unsurprising that he was picked by the group of Heads of Department at the formation meeting at the Barber Institute (of which he speaks in his interview with Liz Bruchet AAH Oral Histories) to represent younger colleagues on the AAH steering group. I also remember that event in the summer of 1973 and meeting Peter Lasko, Andrew Martindale and Peter Fitzgerald. As a post-doc at the Barber, I was invited to attend even though I had no proper post at that time. I got to know Andrew well as a colleague when I moved from Sussex to be Pilkington Professor and Head of Department at the University of Manchester in 1992. The first year was like steering a very old and cumbersome ship in a fog. My trusty guide was Andrew, who was always willing to drop what he was doing and come and explain to me some nicety of what were in those days arcane ways of doing things within a university where, to a newcomer, it could appear that the people really in charge were the janitors; Andrew also had an excellent sense of humour, a strong feel for absurdity, and an ability to take pleasure in good food and company. Thanks to Andrew I steered my way through that first year without major mishap. Those were the years when we had to organise ourselves to deal with teaching-quality audits and research assessment for the first time. While retaining a measured view of the overly bureaucratic demands made on us, Andrew was never a faint heart and always willing to volunteer for tedious administrative tasks, which he undertook with good grace. He had an unwavering sense of loyalty to History of Art at Manchester and when, in the early 1990s, we were able to set up a single BA Hons degree in the History of Modern Art, this became his ‘baby’; there must be countless students who went through that course and benefited from Andrew’s breadth of knowledge and his ability to communicate. Marcia Pointon (former AAH Chair and Editor of Art History) This will also be published in our forthcoming issue of Bulletin, due out in October.  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Journal of the Northern Renaissance]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1485 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1485 Journal of the Northern Renaissance, a peer-reviewed, open-access online journal dedicated to the study of both the cultural productions and the concept of the Northern Renaissance, is inviting submission of papers for their upcoming Issue 7, to be released in 2015.

As policy makers and funders continue to promote the benefits of participation in museums, how sustainable is this activity in a climate of cuts and short-term funding? Terms such as 'co-production', 'co-curation' and 'co-creation' are commonly used but what do these actually mean and are these participative approaches still viable? This one-day conference brings together key thinkers and practitioners to debate 'the politics of participation'. Contributors will ask hard questions about the reality behind the rhetoric and, through a range of case studies, offer innovative, effective and affordable ideas for the future. Contributors include David Anderson (National Museum Wales), Bernadette Lynch, Tim Desmond (Galleries of Justice Museum), Piotr Bienkowski, Helen Graham (University of Leeds), Tanya Harris (Hackney Museum), Marc Steene (Pallant House Gallery), Iain Watson (Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums) and Janice Lane (National Museum Wales). £65, £50 concessions - limited spaces available, book early to avoid disappointment.

The aim of this joint conference is to explore critically what the history of the art market can teach us about the behaviour of the art market today, and vice versa. The conference hopes to bring together historians of the art market working on a wide range of historical periods and places, and utilising varying methodologies, and to engage them in creative dialogue, via thematic groupings, with present-day art market experts of different kinds. A wide range of expertise and interests will be represented from both the past and the present dimensions of this subject. Many fundamental topics are implicated in this conference, for example the nature of consumerism in societies past and present, the history and nature of art collecting, and the role of art institutions. We have singled out four key themes for this event which we envisage will comprise discreet sessions: Modes of artistic production, market strategies and sale Localities, networks and globalization Value and valuation Patrons and dealers. Papers engaging with some aspect of these themes should be a maximum of 20 minutes in length. Preference will be given to those which stimulate dialogue and engage with broader topics. Please send enquiries and proposals of no more than 250 words, indicating which session your paper relates to, by 30 June 2014, to artmarketconference@burlington.org.uk Registration fee: £25 – Students £10 – free for speakers For more information and to register please visit: http://www.burlington.org.uk/art-world/burlington-conference  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Universities Art Association of Canada 2014 Conference]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1412 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1412 June 18, 2014 To view the full Call for Papers document, please visit: http://www.uaac-aauc.com/sites/default/files/UAAC-AAUC%20%20Call%20for%20Papers-%20Appel%20de%20communications%202014%20final%20MAY%2013%20_0.pdf]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Job opportunity - Collection Research Editor, Tate]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1410 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1410 Christopher Griffin, Collection Research Manager, Tate, christopher.griffin@tate.org.uk Application Deadline 17 June 2014 at 17:00 Please click the following link for further details and information about how to apply: http://workingat.tate.org.uk/pages/job_search_view.aspx?jobId=1678&JobIndex=9&categoryList=&workingPatternList=&locations=&group=&keywords=&PageIndex=1&Number=12  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Speculative by Design, Kunstlicht, Vol. 35 (2014), no. 4 ]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1409 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1409 redactie@tijdschriftkunstlicht.nl.

This symposium demonstrates the shared focus on research that Tate and Mori Art Museum have developed in recent years, indicating an increasing need and benefit of scholarly research for all aspects of museum activities. The sessions interrogate how interdisciplinary and transnational artistic experiments from across Asia address political, technological and environmental changes as historical conditions to be celebrated or resisted. Taking the specific characteristics of twentieth- and twenty-first-century Japanese artistic cultures as a starting point, this symposium aims to examine interactions within and beyond the Asian region as a whole. The symposium also aims to generate conversations and debates that cross disciplinary boundaries, by addressing an artistic commitment to multimedia and interdisciplinary practice.

Kress Foundation, looks at how art historians' research practices are evolving in the digital age. Intended primarily for the museums, libraries, academic departments, and visual resources centres that support research in art history within the USA, this project focused on five areas: The emergence of "digital art history," and how it is diverging from the broader understanding of the digital humanities. The interconnected scholarly communities that support art history, including museums, libraries, and visual resources centers, both within and beyond an art historian's home institution. The changes that digitisation and online search portals have brought to the process of searching for primary sources and the limitations of the current discovery environment. The practices art historians employ for managing their large personal collections of digital images. The state of graduate students' professional training. Within these five areas, the report makes clear that the needs of art historians can be successfully met only through the collaborative work of many support organisations. The findings suggest several opportunities for these organisations to develop new funding, services, tools, and initiatives that will have far-reaching impact on the discipline.

The programme aims to encourage those from non-traditional HE backgrounds to consider the opportunities available to them for undergraduate study. We welcome applications from pupils who are interested in applying to a selective university and we provide academic support during and after this Summer University to course participants. In assessing which of your pupils would benefit from attending, you may wish to consider the following: Does the student qualify for widening participation support (as outlined above) and would they benefit from the opportunity? Do they have a good academic track record? Are they taking any AS or A-level subjects that are relevant to the study of Art History (for example Fine Art, History, English Literature, Languages...). Would they take advantage of the range of opportunities offered by the course, attending all sessions and engaging with information/discussions/activities?  The course is always over-subscribed and requires a commitment so please discuss the Summer University with any student who might be interested before encouraging them to submit an application. You will need to sign the application form. We will also need to know if your student qualifies for Widening Participation status, so please add any information you think is relevant. If you and your student live outside of Greater London, we are not able to offer them a place on this Summer University. However, we may be able to organise an Outreach Study Day for you and your students during the academic year.

The Brilliant Club is an award winning charity that recruits, trains, and places doctoral and post-doctoral researchers in low participation schools to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials to small groups of high performing pupils. Over the course of this academic year they will place over 200 researchers to work in schools across London, the South East and the Midlands, where they will work with around 5000 high performing pupils. The Brilliant Club are now looking forward to their next round of placements, which will see Brilliant Club tutors work with hundreds of talented young people as they begin to prepare for university. What can a successful candidate expect? Brilliant Club will place successful candidates in a non-selective state school, where they will work with eight high-performing 16-18 year old pupils, delivering a series of tutorials that takes them beyond the curriculum and helps them to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition necessary to secure places at top universities. Successful candidates typically design a course based on their own research, with recent programmes as varied as ‘Fighting Cancer with Sound Bullets’ and ‘Free Will, Luck and Moral Responsibility’. What will a successful candidate learn? A Brilliant Club summer placement offers tutors the chance to complete meaningful and well-paid summer work, whilst communicating their research to a non-specialist audience (increasingly a requirement for research council funding). As well as gaining teaching experience, tutors will deepen their knowledge of the UK education system, helping them understand the backgrounds of the undergraduates studying at their institutions. Their training programme is delivered by qualified teachers and focuses on learning theory and teaching technique, as well as providing practical support for tutors who choose to design their own course. All tutors also take part in a professional induction, including an Enhanced Disclosure DBS Check. What will a summer placement look like? After completing two full day training sessions run by qualified and experienced teachers, tutors will deliver a programme of six tutorials to two groups of four pupils. The first and last tutorials take place at their launch and graduation trips, where tutors will accompany pupils on a visit to a highly-selective university. The in-school tutorials are 75 mins in length each, and pupils will complete the programme with an extended assignment which tutors will mark before the graduation trip. Tutors are paid £450 for a single placement, and there may be the opportunity to take part in more than one placement. For more information please visit the Brilliant Club website: http://www.jobs.ac.uk/enhanced/fp/BrilliantClubMarch2014.pdf To apply to be a Brilliant Club tutor this summer, please complete the application form on their: website www.thebrilliantclub.org and send the completed form with a copy of your CV to apply@thebrilliantclub.org If you have any queries or require further information please contact: Dr Mary Henes at mary@thebrilliantclub.org]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Google Cultural Institute Salon, London, 26 March 2014]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1343 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1343 application website.

Date: October 16-19 2014 Panel title: Translatio. Visual and material culture in translation Panel description: The Latin translatio means to carry across. Whether conceived as a faithful copy or a dynamic paraphrase, such movement changes the original.This interdisciplinary panel seeks papers that engage with this concept of translation in the visual and material cultures of the sixteenth century. Theories of translation have traditionally privileged texts, and histories of translation have considered the burgeoning trade in translated and printed texts in the early modern period. Published translations, such as those made by the Plantin Press in Antwerp, not only generated new knowledge and ideas but produced considerable monetary profit. This panel will discuss pictures and other material objects as sites of translation alongside texts. It will consider ways in which meaning and value were produced through transformation into a different idiom, medium or rhetorical register, and the effects of physical movement or circulation to a different audience or market. One might discuss the way in which a work interprets its model, whether visual or textual, or talk about how a translation distances the ‘copy’ from the original by using a different syntax and vocabulary and/or communicating with another group of people. Can paraphrases and even misunderstandings be creative acts? We invite contributions which address translation between different cultures, traditions or media and the meanings and value generated by the circulation of motifs, objects or artists. We particularly welcome papers that address diverse or multiple media, economies of artistic exchange, and/or translations produced in cross-cultural encounters. Further information about the conference can be found here You will need to provide a title and provide a short abstract by March 15th at the latest.

B. Bullen, 'Fiction and painting: the case of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles' Many nineteenth-century novelists had an interactive relationship with the visual arts but none so more than Thomas Hardy who, before he turned to fiction, was trained as an architectural draughtsman. As a consequence, Hardy’s novels are infused with pictorial effects. Sometimes these take the form of composition or the grouping of figures; sometimes they extend to lighting and illumination, but often they interact with the very conceptual structure of the novels, changing and adjusting the way in which things are seen, felt and understood. Tess of the d’Urbervilles is perhaps the best example of this, and in this lecture J B Bullen points to the way in which Hardy used the painting of J.M.W. Turner, as an emotional vehicle at some of the most crucial moments in the narrative and asks what kind of interpretation we can put on this amalgam of image and text.

In this context, sharp separations have been drawn between art history and art criticism, which are perceived as separate spheres, fundamentally differing in their approach, motive, form and objects of study. But is it legitimate to draw such a sharp distinction? This is where the role of museum professionals becomes critically significant. Museum and gallery displays affect our perception and definition of ‘Art’, as much as the work of art critics. Curatorial strategies can disrupt traditional modes of viewing and through innovative uses of digital technologies can invite the spectator to see what might have been previously missed. Unconventional museum displays and interdisciplinary projects can break down traditional boundaries between ‘material culture’ on the one hand, and ‘fine art’ on the other. For example, museums and galleries collect and exhibit objects that have hitherto been neglected due to preconceived conventions of categorisation; the ethnographic artefact as a work of art or stained glass as environmental art. This colloquium therefore seeks to consider in what ways cultural collaborations, innovative exhibitions and museum collecting influence art historical research and vice versa. This is a colloquium organised by the Department of Art History, Film and Visual Studies at the University of Birmingham in conjunction with the Journal of Art Historiography. The organisers invite proposals for papers of 20 minutes exploring themes including (but not limited to): Knowledge exchanges between museum professionals and academics from theoretical, historical and/or practical perspectives, including: * University courses in Art History and Museum Studies * International, national and local research networks New and emerging approaches to art and art history, incorporating: * Digital technologies * Collaborative research Art critics’ impact on exhibitions and art history Please submit abstracts for papers of up to 300 words, together with title, contact details and affiliation, via email to: arthistoriography@gmail.com.

Exhibitions usually dedicated to contemporary art, such as Manifesta and the Venice Biennale, have recently included swathes of historical material. The Deep of the Modern (Manifesta 9 in Genk, Belgium in 2012), and the Encyclopedic Palace (Venice Biennale, 2013) in different ways made the complexity of the workings of art and culture in history central to the displays. Surrealism in particular, which always had a different attitude to its precursors and to producers outside the mainstream of modernism, has been widely revisited by artists and by curators. In this talk I will reflect on my own experience as an art historian and occasional curator and defend exhibitions as potential forces within the modern world. Professor Ades is a renowed art historian who has curated some of the most important international exhibitions on Dada and Surrealism and on Art in Latin America. She was Associate Curator of Manifesta 9 and is working on an exhibition on Hannah Hoch. Dawn Ades’ Collected Writings will be published shortly by Ridinghouse, London.

Through the metaphorical language of the museum as, for example, temple (Duncan), tomb (Adorno), laboratory (Barr), or supermarket (Warhol), artists, curators, critics, philosophers and historians have sought to read the institution of the museum as symbolic of particular cultural and social ideologies. Against the backdrop of a growing current interest in institutional and exhibition histories, this symposium will consider the many metaphors that have been used to describe, define and theorise museums, as well as the ways in which changes in the metaphorical language of the museum might indicate broader discursive shifts. In addition, it will ask what metaphorical constructs shape our conception of museums today.

Watts was inspired by the Elgin Marbles in his work. Brought to England in the year prior to his birth, the classical marble figures held a constant influence upon Watts in his approach to composition, modelling, and eventually his sculptural work. Their role as a visual source can be directly seen in the paintings Endymion, and in sculptures such as Physical Energy. As well as paintings and sculpture we will look at drawings not usually on display. At the British Museum, we will explore specific elements of the frieze that influenced Watts, from figures to drapery. The day concludes with an optional drawing masterclass from 5-5.45pm suitable for all levels of drawing experience.

The aim of the conference is to bring together museum and heritage professionals (GLAM and heritage sector), innovation experts (universities, research and technology transfer centres, start-ups) and practitioners (SME sector) to enable discussion on the potential of collaboration and innovation. For decades digital technologies have been considered by the museums as bringing rapid changes that create challenges for the museum work and practices. With the advent of the digital age, museum professionals must constantly focus on the consequences and re-evaluate the museum’s role, as knowledge and interpretative processes are co-created with audiences and other expertise centres. At the same time innovation experts are researching and designing novel interfaces and experiences. How do we bring these different perspectives and approaches?

Vernacular manuscripts of didactic texts were often illustrated with allegories and narrative scenes. Translations of the classics, moral treatises, fables, and lives of saints were enlivened by ingenious visual programmes. Illustrations could range from depictions of moments in everyday life as visual paradigms of moral precepts, to familiar interactions that gave immediacy to religious narratives. Illustrative cycles acted as visual glosses and helped readers to grasp and memorise moral content. How did illustrations in vernacular manuscripts reflect educational programmes for lay readers, notably those for women and children? Can we discern in them the respective contributions of authors, patrons and artists? Were there regional habits and styles of such pedagogic visuality in different parts of Europe? These are some of the questions which this session, organised by Dr Federico Botana, seeks to explore.

Stern argues that interactive art suspends and amplifies the ways in which we experience embodiment as per-formed, relational, and emergent. He provides many in-depth case studies of contemporary artworks that develop a practice of embodied philosophy, setting a stage to explore how we inter-act and relate with the world. He offers a valuable critical framework for analysing interactive artworks and what’s at stake in our encounters with them, which can be applied to a wide range of complex and emerging art forms. The book is published as a peer-reviewed printed book and eBook and is accompanied – or rather, re-per-formed – as an online participatory chapter about embodied research practices, and a multi-location interactive exhibition and virtual book tour. In the companion chapter (offered in partnership with Networked Book at Turbulence.org), Stern offers a semi-autobiographical account of his own research trajectory, and invites comment, critique, and contributions of new work. This creates a participatory stage for rehearsing the performance of scholarship. At the exhibitions, audiences encounter the concepts and materials addressed in the book. For example, in Stern’s ‘Body Language’ series, participants use their full bodies to interact with digitized sounds, projected animations, texts, drawings, and videos, which shift and change with their movements. They explore, play with, experience, and practice how we make bodies and meaning. In its various modes, Interactive Art and Embodiment performs the philosophical environment of interactive art, and embodies Arts Future Book’s investigations into how we can and should perform art scholarship. Further performances of art, philosophy and publishing will occur on Twitter using the hashtag: #implicitbody.

Jaskanis, Wilanów Palace Museum Wilanów Palace October 15-17, 2014 Enhanced interest in sensual perception was one of the mainstays of early modern culture. The development of new visual conventions (most notably the linear perspective) and “ocularcentric” character of early modern science has long focused scholarly attention on the contemporary obsession with sight and with optical illusion. Yet sight, although privileged as a nucleus of artistic theory and analytical instrument in natural philosophy, was but one of the senses which were to be attracted, and then gratified by the display of early modern art and architecture. The complex discourse of sensual perception and gratification embraced all senses, although their role depended on the comparative value assigned to the senses themselves, on their abilities to provoke desire, provide delight, and grant access to knowledge. The diversity of sensual stimuli was perhaps most evident in the villa estate – its architecture and landscape design. The role of the senses and sensual perception in the planning, design, as well as functioning and reception of the villa (c. 1450-1800), will be the focus of this conference, set against the essential materiality of architecture and nature, understood as the framework of reference for the sensual experience rooted in pre-modern concepts of the corporeal sensorium. The conventional, Aristotelian five senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste) often appeared in the allegorical disguise in decorations of early modern villas, indicating particular significance of these themes for suburban or country residences. Indeed, the contemporary villa and surrounding estate, combining nature and artifice, offered a perfect site for deploying diverse strategies of sensuality. The symposium aims to explore this sense-oriented villa culture from the point of view of the patron, artist/artisan as well as the audience, in their class and gender polarization. The submissions examining how theory and practice of contemporary architectural and landscape design, as well as interior decoration and furnishings, offered ways of engaging sight, touch, or any other sense, by a myriad of means: colour, shape, texture etc. are particularly welcome. Case studies reporting new findings in the area of colour use in the early modern interiors, as well as papers discussing various attempts to bridge the gap between senses in the context of villa architecture and its fittings, facilities, machinery, accessories and garden structures, such as musical fountains, edible sculpture etc. are equally encouraged. The organizers also seek papers demonstrating how the social ritual of the contemporary villeggiatura served as a means of sensual display. Because indulging the senses was a pleasure, as well as a potential threat to virtue – papers exploring the intertwined discourses of sensuality and anti-sensuality in the early modern period will be of significant interest too, together with those setting such debates within broad social, political and economic contexts. PROPOSAL GUIDELINES Proposals for 30-minute papers (including a 250-word abstract and brief curriculum vitae, along with a mailing address, telephone number, fax, and e-mail address) should be submitted by October 30, 2013 to Mr. Marek Wasilewicz (Wilanów Palace Museum): villaconference2014@muzeum-wilanow.pl By post: Marek Wasilewicz, Wilanów Palace Museum, ul.

A range of recent publications and conference sessions have helped to refocus our attention on the material complexity of medieval art, the ways in which various substances come together in objects yet maintain their integrity, the tendency for one medium to signify another or even multiple others, and the complex processes by which the rich materiality of medieval things was able to affect human behavior on a number of levels. What is sometimes left out of such analyses are the aesthetic values of medieval art. Clearly, medieval artists, patrons, and viewers found both beauty and pleasure in the materials of medieval art and their technical transformations and combinations. Certainly, quality and cost were two factors at play here, but materials and/or techniques might be chosen to call attention to themselves for a whole host of other reasons. Consciousness of style might be influenced by the materials selected, and vice-versa. Materiality and media are undoubtedly linked, but are not necessarily synonymous. Representation itself was undoubtedly affected by the aesthetics of both materials and media. In these ways, medieval art called attention to itself as art, as made thing, and simultaneously pointed to other values, values both earthly and supernatural. In shaping the session, speakers are encouraged to place in the foreground the key concepts spelled out in the session proposal but with the knowledge that the intersection of materiality and aesthetics allows for a broad range of approaches to art history.

Throughout the relatively short history of the art museum, metaphorical constructs have often been used to explain the museum’s social and cultural role, as well as to define its various protagonists. Through the metaphorical language of the museum as, for example, temple (Duncan), tomb (Adorno), laboratory (Barr), or supermarket (Warhol), artists, curators, critics, philosophers and historians have sought to read the institution of the museum as symbolic of particular cultural and social ideologies. Against the backdrop of a growing current interest in institutional and exhibition histories, this symposium will consider the many metaphors that have been used to describe, define and theorise museums. We will also address how changes in the metaphorical language of the museum might indicate broader discursive shifts. In addition, it will ask what metaphorical constructs shape our conception of museums today. We seek proposals that address examples of museum metaphors from a range of historical, geographic, and theoretical perspective. Topics might include, but are not limited to: The museum metaphor in museological discourse; The museum as metaphor in artistic practice; Metaphor, behaviour and the museum’s publics; Museum metaphor, modernism and postmodernism; Metaphor and museum architecture and/or design; Social and spatial metaphors in the museum context; Museum metaphors in film, literature and popular culture.

What did the term, or its (near) equivalent(s), mean in – for example -- Ancient Greece, Renaissance Italy or early twentieth-century Iran? Are other terms – e.g. ‘modern’, ‘new’, ‘original’, ‘novel’ -- homologous to today’s ‘contemporary’?   2. ‘The Contemporary’ across Disciplines Seeks to explore the term as it is applied to a broad range of disciplines. What and when are contemporary art, dance, music, architecture, history? Contributors to this field need not (though they may wish to) provide comparative analyses. The aim is to bring together representatives for different disciplines and practices in cross-disciplinary panels. 3. ‘Contemporary’ Literature How is such a body of work to be defined? Is contemporary literature age-related (e.g. no more than ten years old)?; should it be defined oppositionally (not-modernist or post-modernist)?; prepositionally (contemporary to what or whom)?; geographically (determined by publishing centres)?; financially (determined by market forces)?; in relation to global(ising) events (‘contemporary’ is post-9/11 or post post-Holocaust)?; technologically (exploiting new media)?, to name just a few possibilities. Do we need to differentiate between ‘contemporary literature’ and ‘contemporary culture’, and if so, why? 4. The ‘Contemporary Canon’ Is the term quite simply oxymoronic? Is it really the case that only time will tell? If we can already identify authors and texts which have ‘made it’ onto the, or a, contemporary canon, what aesthetic and commercial processes are at play? Are we dealing with Great Works or Big Books? 5. Practising the Contemporary How does working on the contemporary call for particular research methodologies and pedagogical practices? Are there specific publishing implications? What is the role of the library? Of digital technologies?

Some works concentrated on the representation of combat on different fronts, on life in the trenches, on human and material destruction and the devastation of the landscape, while others looked to the home front and changes in the organization of society, and still others opted for a more elliptical or even allegorical approach to the conflict and its consequences. Paintings, drawings and engravings were executed by artists of all tendencies, some well-known, some less so, some volunteers, some conscripts, some on official assignment with the army, and some non-combatants. As the conditions in which the works were produced varied, so did the conditions of their diffusion and reception, during the conflict, in the years that followed and over the course of the century that has elapsed since then. In Great Britain, significant scholarly attention has been paid to painters’ representations of the Great War. This has given rise not only to chapters within monographs devoted to artists who experienced the conflict, but also to studies which have examined the conditions under which these representations were created, notably in the context of official commissions (Harries & Harries, Malvern, Viney). Numerous painters were recruited as war artists under government schemes that continued into the post-war period and led to the constitution of significant public collections. The Imperial War Museum, which was established in 1917 and opened to the public in 1920, became a major organ of diffusion of these works – works to which some artists, such as Paul Nash and Christopher Nevinson, partly owe their fame. War artist programmes also existed in France and Germany, organized in different ways, specific to the national context. In France, the Bibliothèque de documentation internationale contemporaine or BDIC (formerly the Bibliothèque-Musée de la Guerre) and the Musée de l’Armée have significant holdings of paintings, prints and drawings that were acquired by the French state or donated at the Armistice; some were executed by artists on official assignment, such as Denis, Vallotton, Bonnard and Vuillard, and others by conscripts, including Léger, Dunoyer de Segonzac and Friesz. Many works remain in private collections. In Germany, painting was utilized to glorify national culture, and exhibitions were among the cultural activities organized to that end in neutral countries. Official war artists’ paintings of the Front were the subject of new attention in an exhibition held at the State Museum in Oldenburg in 2008 (catalogue ed. Bernd Küster); more extensively studied are Expressionist painters’ denunciations of the horrors of the trenches, notably the work of Beckmann and Dix, and the critique of State values carried out by Zurich-based Dada artists. German art of the First World War has been principally studied within monographs, but has also been the object of several overviews (Gerster and Helbling, Gölss, Jürgens-Kirchhoff). Numerous works are held by military museums, notably the Bavarian Army Museum in Ingolstadt; others are in art museums and private collections. Contemporary interpretations of painters’ relation to the War have drawn, to a significant extent, on the participation (or non-participation) of major painters – in particular those linked to avant-garde movements – in the representation of the conflict, whether in a private capacity or in order to carry out commissions; also significant has been the question of access to the works produced. Philippe Dagen has argued that in France these artists remained “silent” on the subject of the First World War. Can this silence be explained by painting’s not disposing of methods adequate to the subject, by the unrepresentable nature of the Great War, and by the fragmentation of avant-garde movements, or should analysis attend rather to such questions as public commissions, the conditions of reception and ways in which public collections were created in the different countries, and to the differing status of the avant-garde in each? This international conference takes as its subject the representations of the First World War by painters who experienced it. It will consider the works produced, and the conditions of their production, diffusion and reception. The principal focus will be on France, Great Britain and Germany, but the conference will also be open to broader comparisons with other countries engaged in the conflict, including Italy, Russia, Belgium, Austria, the United States, Canada and Australia. Particular attention will be given to the institutional context of works’ production and diffusion, in connection with other themes and approaches. Proposals for papers will be welcome on topics including, but not limited to, the following: The uses and ends of artists’ representations of the War; private and public uses ; spontaneous productions versus works produced to commission; documenting, comment, censorship, propaganda; pacifism; public expectations; testimony and the construction of memory Representing extreme experiences The artist’s relationship to his/her work: journals and artists’ writings Material and political constraints ; the time and timing of creation Comparative approaches to the different programmes of commissions and war artists schemes; the role of the State The relation to tradition, to art movements, to affiliations; the question of the possibility of modern history painting Means of diffusion: galleries, books, the Press, public collections ; collecting policies.

Hunter and Francesco Lucchini Objects, according to the anthropological adage, are good to think with. But just what kind of thinking is it that objects enable – or constrain? Are some objects made “cleverer” than others simply through their manufacture or embodied virtuosity? And how might attention to such inherent cleverness enable one to reconsider the aesthetic objects privileged by historians of art? The Clever Object presents a multidisciplinary exploration of the ways objects materialise, embody, or negotiate various forms of intelligence. Experts from the fields of anthropology, philosophy of science, design history and artistic practice offer rich insights into objects that frustrate conventional modes of narration while seeming to guide – even entrap – the subjects who make, behold, and interpret them. Original and thought-provoking, The Clever Object defines, explores, and expands the category of “the clever object” as an analytic tool of art-historical interpretation for the twenty-first century. To read this special issue, visit the Art History online platform. Essays The Clever Object: Three Pavilions, Three Loggias, and a Planetarium Matthew C.

Founded in 1978, the journal publishes essays, critical reviews, and special issues that engage with path-breaking new developments and critical debate in current art-historical practice. Art History covers all kinds of art and visual culture across all time periods and geographical areas. The journal welcomes contributions from the full spectrum of methodological perspectives, and is a forum for a wide range of historical, critical, historiographical and theoretical forms of writing. By means of this expanded definition, Art History works to transform and to extend the modes of enquiry that shape the discipline.    ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Applications for MA Asian Art Histories]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1155 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1155 admissions@lasalle.edu.sg or call (+65) 6496 5111 Deadline for booking or submission (if applicable): Application Deadline: 15 October 2013 ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Event - Connecting with Collections Symposium]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1154 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1154 http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/event/4511522084# For more details about the symposium visit: http://connectingwithcollections.wordpress.com/symposium/ For more information about the researchers visit: http://connectingwithcollections.wordpress.com/]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Event - Art Market Study Day]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1152 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1152 www.barber.org.uk from mid-July, or email Sophie Bostock S.Bostock@bham.ac.uk Organised by The Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Ordinary/Everyday/Quotidian]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1151 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1151 Ordinary/Everyday/Quotidian An International Two-Day Conference University of York, 26 & 27 September, 2013 The ordinary and the everyday are intuitively self-evident, yet notoriously elusive. Efforts to define “ordinary language” or “everyday practice” have preoccupied thinkers across many disciplines: philosophers, historians, sociologists, political theorists, geographers and critics of literature and the visual arts. And these subjects demand more attention from scholars working on race, class, gender and sexuality, as well as food studies and the digital and medical humanities. Yet existing efforts have rarely engaged in dialogue with their counterparts in other disciplines. We call for papers from scholars in all these fields to join in a spirited dialogue at an international, two-day conference to be held at the University of York, 26 and 27 September 2013. Scholars in all disciplines are invited to to ponder, celebrate, and critique the quotidian, ranging from the furtive pleasures of pop to the dubious delights of junk: “Does it glow at the core with personal heat, with signs of one’s deepest nature, clues to secret yearnings, humiliating flaws? What habits, fetishes, addictions, inclinations? What solitary acts, behavioral ruts?” Confirmed events include keynote addresses by: Prof. John Roberts (History of Art, Wolverhampton) Dr. Jennifer Baird (Classics and Archaeology, Birkbeck) Dr Bryony Randall (English, Glasgow) It will culminate in a colloquium chaired by Prof Ben Highmore (Cultural Studies, Sussex) and featuring: Prof. Michael Sheringham (French, All Souls Oxford) Dr. Holger Nehring (History, Sheffield) Dr. Rupert Read (Philosophy, UEA) Dr. Michael White (History of Art, York) Dr. Neal Alexander (English, Nottingham) What do the terms everyday, ordinary and quotidian mean at the beginning of the twenty-first century? This conference will confront head-on the challenges and opportunities presented by the interdisciplinary nature of such an enquiry. Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words to oeqyork2013@gmail.com by 16 August; general enquiries are also welcome.

To register, please use following link: http://webstore.ncl.ac.uk/browse/product.asp?compid=1&modid=2&catid=49 About the conference Wonder has always been understood as a place outside of the familiar cultural framework. It has been linked to the fascination of change, the coincidence of oppositions, often placed at the threshold between aesthetic and scientific realms. The wondrous object becomes therefore not only the carrier of the inexplicable, but moreover exposes our relationship to the alien, enigmatic and perplexing. Recent scholarship has been focused on a variety of topics ranging from shifting aspects of curiosity and wonder (Benedict 2001), discursive qualities of the curiosity cabinet (Kenny 2004; Daston and Park 2001) the stability of the frame of wonder chamber (Stafford and Terpak, 2001), the destabilising effect of wonder on established norms (Platt 1999) and wonder within digital media (Gehl 2009; Beardon and Malmborg 2002; Buscher 1999 and others). Wonder cabinets firmly establish the position of the subject, for whom the view was constituted, reaffirming the relationship between the object and the viewer. It is this scopic regime, which has the potential to enthral and transfix us, which shall be explored here. To what extent can wonder be seen as intense level of attention and as a ‘possibility of a fixation, of beholding something in wonder or contemplation, in which the attentive subject is both immobile and ungrounded’ (Crary 2000, 10). A plethora of recent exhibitions underline the urgency of Wonder within contemporary visual art (MOMA Wunderkammer, 2008; Getty Institute Devices of Wonder, 2002, NGCA Wonders of the Visible World, 2012; Hayward Touring: Curiosity: Art and The Pleasures of Knowing, 2013). This conference sets out to investigate the circumstances and motivations for the re-emergence of wonder in contemporary artistic practice and discourse. How do artists deal in their practice with fixation and the levels of attention often referred to as Wonder. The conference provides a platform for cross-disciplinary debate and the presentation of new practice-led research. Possible topics: the phenomenon of absorption or fixation of the viewer as response to the visual impact. wonder as strategy of breaching the dichotomy of science and art wonder in the age of new media wonder as questioning modes of representation and visibility wonder and its role in contemporary creative practice wonder’s role rendering the strange conceivable  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Horizons for Social Sciences and Humanities - Consultation]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1125 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1125  http://horizons.mruni.eu/consultation-2/ For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact consultation@mruni.eu From April 22nd on, we are contacting researchers that have carried out or plan to carry out EU-funded research in the Socio-economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH). We ask for their views on a set of five questions, in order to take the pulse of the SSH research community and prepare a declaration that will be handed over to research policy makers at the event. The European Commission proposals for the multi-annual framework for research and innovation (“Horizon 2020” – http://ec.europa.eu/research/horizon2020), discussed and modified by the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers, have structured research funding into interdisciplinary blocks defined as “societal challenges”. In this new structure, a new role for SSH is being envisaged. SSH are seen as core building block for realizing the Vision “Europe 2020” (http://ec.europa.eu/europe2020/ ): an “integrated approach” will replace previously existing dedicated funding streams. With a view to this unprecedented role that has been assigned to SSH research in Europe, the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU has decided to dedicate a specific conference to this discussion.The conference’s steering committee has decided to launch an online consultation on how to shape the roles of SSH in “Horizon 2020”. The objective is to learn more about the current situation and the ambitions of the research community, but also to identify the needs and structural problems of specific fields, with an emphasis on their potential to contribute to the success of the Vision Europe 2020. We are circulating this consultation to the wider SSH research community, irrespective of whether individuals or institutions are already active in EU-funded research. Indeed we believe it would be of great importance to reach out also to those SSH communities that have not yet been involved in EU-funding. This may include researchers who are based outside Europe, but are in cooperation with colleagues in Europe. Results of the consultation will be made publicly accessible online. They will also provide valuable input for the planned Vilnius declaration on “Horizons for Social Sciences and Humanities”. Below are the five questions to be answered until June 15th 2013, including specific examples whenever possible. Even if you do not plan to apply within the new scheme, your views will be very valuable to us. Thanks for your participation! The steering committee, Helga Nowotny (chair), R?taPetrauskait? (Vice Chair), Giedrius Vili?nas (Vice Chair), Jutta Allmendinger, Paul Boyle, Craig Calhoun, Gustavo Cardoso, Rivka Feldhay, Poul Holm, Pavel Kabat, Alain Peyraube, Aura Reggiani, Peter Strohschneider, Peter Tindemans, Wim van den Doel, Michel Wieviorka, Björn Wittrock If you want to receive updates on the consultation and conference, please indicate if we may include your email address in the conference mailing list. Consultation on the state of the Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities (SSH) in Europe April 15th to June 15th, 2013 Please send your answers/statements via email to consultation@mruni.eu until June 15th, 2013 Please indicate your position/standpoint: e.g. individual researcher, representative of research institution, representative of association, …. and your fields of research! SSH research is often conducted in disciplinarily defined contexts. This may be an obstacle in a problem-driven research environment (“societal challenges”). Can you give examples of how your own research area has been involved in (a) opening up to other research fields, (b) translating findings and/or methods to or from other academic fields, (c) contributing to the emergence of new, cross-disciplinary fields, and/or (d) transcending, with its results and insights, the fields of academic research?   The research agendas of the different subfields of SSH are very heterogeneous. What are the broad research questions, new methodological or theoretical developments, or generally new approaches that are high on your own research agenda? Which ones are high on the research agenda of your field? Where do you see potential contributions to societal relevance?   “Horizon 2020”will provide new opportunities for SSH to contribute to new research on “societal challenges”. What are the potential contributions from your field? Please specify the “societal challenge/s” to which contributions from your research community are most likely, and suggest successful steps in this direction, if possible.   Do you foresee (or have you experienced) obstacles that may prevent you and your research community from making contributions to the “societal grand challenges” approach? Please provide specific indications.   In order to foster a more integrative approach that would also benefit the SSH research communities, what would you consider the most important incentives that “Horizon 2020” could provide? Should you have any additional comments, please feel free to share them with us. Your statements will be archived in anonymised format (unless explicitly stated otherwise) in a database at the Mykolas Romeris University, Vilnius. A report will be published on the conference website (http://horizons.mruni.eu ) and made widely available to the conference participants.  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Grant Applications - The Malevich Society]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1124 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1124 info@malevichsociety.org, or may be downloaded from the web-site: www.malevichsociety.org.

The one-day event will coincide with a small display of selected pamphlets from the PHM collection (curated by the RaRa organisers) together with a selection from our ‘call for pamphlets’. Radical Pamphlets It is written because there is something that one wants to saynow, and one believes there is no other way of getting a hearing. Pamphlets may turn on points of ethics or theology but they always have a clear politicalimplication. A pamphlet may be written either for or against somebody or something, but in essence it is always a protest. George Orwell (1948) in British Pamphleteers Volume 1, from the sixteenth century to the French Revolution For Orwell, the pamphlet is a polemical provocation. Through the 20thc and beyond, artists have worked and acted provocatively and polemically with text, images and performance, publishingwritings and producing pamphlets and manifestoes, including the Futurists (1909), Surrealists (1924), Fluxus (George Maciunas, 1963), First Things First (Ken Garland 1964), Mierle Laderman Ukeles (Manifesto for Maintenance Art 1969) and Stewart Home’s Neoist Manifestos(1987). More recently, in 2009, Monica Ross and fifteen others co-recited theUniversal Declaration of Human Rights on the Anniversary of The Peterloo Massacre at John Rylands Library Manchester and the Freee Art Collective have performed their manifestoes in a range of public settings. The edited book (2011) by Danchev 100 Artists' Manifestos: From the Futurists to the Stuckists (Penguin Modern Classics) demonstrates it as subject of current interest. The last decade has seen art’s increasing engagement with political and social issues, whereby in some instances artists’ activities have become indistinguishable from social activism (e.g. Wochenklauser) or other disciplinary functions (e.g. artist as ‘anthropologist’ as in Jeremy Deller’s Folk Archive).The art community’s current preoccupation with revolutionary movements and global politics is being addressed from different perspectives. The format and traditions of the ‘radical pamphlet’ may provide an alternative platform for artistic intervention and provocation. The People’s History Museum (PHM) is a national research facility, archive and accredited public museum, which contains unique collections of documents and artefacts. The collection includes the British Labour Party and Communist Party of Great Britain papers, extensive amateur and documentary film holdings and the largest trade union and protest banner collection in the world. The Museum suits our particular brief of radicality in its focus on histories of radical collective action. http://www.phm.org.uk/ The RadicalAesthetics-RadicalArt (RaRa) project was initiated in 2009 at Loughborough University (LU) under the auspices of the Politicized Practice Research Group (PPRG). The RaRa project and its associated book series (with I.B. Tauris) explores the meeting of contemporary art practice and interpretations of radicality to promote debate, confront convention and formulate alternative ways of thinking about art practice.

The conference’s purpose is to support the scholarly investigation of the paragone, or rivalry in the arts, as it has been manifested in all media across history. Studies in all disciplines relevant to the persistence and history of competition in the arts, as well as inter-arts rivalry, will be featured. These include art history, visual culture, comparative literature, philosophy, aesthetics, the performing arts, critical theory, communication, cultural studies, linguistics, spoken-word, and musicology, amongst others. For instance, scholars might consider rivalries between individual artists, patrons of the arts, or nationalistic competition, hierarchies of the senses or media in aesthetic theory, arts-related organisations, debates over the superiority of one art versus another, ut pictura poesis and word/image studies, etc. To apply: Submit a 300-word abstract using the appropriate form on the Society website (http://blogs.umflint.edu/paragonestudies/). Please include a curriculum vitae. Presenters will read 20-minute papers. Round Table: The conference will also include a round-table session featuring artists who seek to discuss how competition in the arts, past or present, has impacted their works or professions. For example, at the inaugural conference of 2012, a sculptor spoke about how he navigates similarities between his work and that of a contemporary, while a poet addressed ongoing battles between formal and informal poetry in academia, and a digital-media artist explained how appropriation manifests itself as competition in her work. Each artist shared examples of his/her work through recitation, performance/spoken-word, and digital imagery. To apply: Submit a 300-word abstract outlining your presentation, using the form on the Society website (http://blogs.umflint.edu/paragonestudies/), as well as a curriculum vitae. Each featured round-table presenter will introduce the audience to his/her work in a brief 10-minute presentation, followed by discussion.]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Member Offer]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1113 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1113 Painting of Modern Life at Tate Britain (Showing 26th June – 20th October) This summer, Tate Britain presents a major exhibition of landscapes by the much loved British painter L S Lowry (1887-1976) and we are giving one lucky individual the chance to win two tickets to see it. This is the first show held by a public institution in London since the artist’s death. Bringing together around eighty works, including Tate’s Coming Out of School 1927 and The Pond 1950, this show aims to re-assess Lowry’s contribution as part of a wider art history and to argue for his achievement as Britain’s pre-eminent painter of the industrial city. Lowry’s most frequent subjects were drawn from the streets he walked daily whilst working as a rent collector, subjects such as football matches, protest marches, evictions and fist-fights and workers going to and from the mill. But above all Lowry was a landscape painter and wished to show what the industrial revolution had made of the world. Without his pictures, Britain would arguably lack an account in paint of the experiences of the 20th-century working class. To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to this landmark exhibition just send your name and contact details to competitions@akauk.com, and write ‘AAH’ in the subject line. Terms and Conditions: Competition tickets are valid until 6 October 2013. Subject to availability.

Dr Christopher Dresser was a contemporary of William Morris, being born in the same year in 1834. Both addressed issues around industrial production in Victorian Britain, but from radically different perspectives. Whilst Dresser accepted that industrialisation was here to stay, Morris looked to the principles of the medieval guilds. Dresser’s name is relatively unknown by a broad public, outside the worlds of antiques and design history. This is not the case with the likes of William Morris and Charles Rennie-Mackintosh both of whom are household names. The scale and breadth of Dresser’s work needs therefore to be further recognized and promulgated. The Christopher Dresser Society would address this aim. There are substantial reasons why the North East, and Middlesbrough in particular, should be a hub for such a society. Linthorpe Pottery is well known, but few know that Linthorpe wallpaper was also produced. It is even less well known that Middlesbrough was selected to be the base for Dresser’s dream of an art-industry complex in the 1880s. The Dresser family has strong links to North Yorkshire, Thirsk and Darlington and there is also record of the family having lived in Stockton when Dresser was very young. There are many champions for the study of Dresser in the North East including the Dorman Museum which houses both the largest collection of Linthorpe pottery in the world and a recently acquired collection of Dresser artefacts of some note. Teesside University, for its part, wishes to stimulate the need for further scholarship into Christopher Dresser and is committed to establishing the Christopher Dresser Society in collaboration with the Dorman Museum The Christopher Dresser society’s aims require definition. It is envisaged that this will initially be an iterative process. Your views and input would be most welcome. Amongst its considerations, the society would rightfully extend knowledge of Dresser’s influence within British, European and American design and material culture. It would provide a resource for those wanting to find sources and scholars who can help them with identification and contextual issues. It would join together communities of scholars, dealers and students at all levels. It would also serve to develop heritage resources and tourism in those locations where it is known that Dresser had some sway. These are some initial thoughts about Christopher Dresser Society which will be discussed further during the symposium launch event of the 20th June. Your additional participation in this and any future discussions is warmly welcomed.

Did I solicit thee From darkness to promote me? John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book X (1667) Complex narratives spanning months, years or even decades exist behind the single bracketed date attached to artworks to indicate their moment of execution or completion. This one-day symposium will explore the ‘ante-natal’ development of early modern art from its conception to its ‘quickening’ and eventual birth. The process fascinated contemporary theorists and continues to raise questions for modern art historians. For example, when was an artistic project considered finished or unfinished? What terms were used to indicate the various stages of bringing an artwork into being, and what implications did these terms have for authorship and authenticity? The creation of art is not the work of a moment or achieved at a single stroke; it involves a series of transpositions from idea to study or plan, from sketch to painting, from plan to building and so on. How did early modern art reflect on the process of its own making? We invite 20-minute papers considering artistic ‘work in progress’ in the early modern period (c.1550-1800): what processes of translation and transposition were involved in moving art out of the realm of ideas into the material world? Papers might analyse and discuss the evolution of an artwork from concept to creation or construction and consider each phase of development in turn. This could involve close examination of plans, drawings, studies, sketches, maquettes or bozzetti for the same artistic project and consideration of how each stage shaped the end product what did contemporary ideas, religious beliefs, and philosophical theories (those of Spinoza, for example) have to say about creativity - and how might these have informed the conception of the early modern work of art? As Peter Conrad (Creation: Artists, Gods & Origins, 2007) has suggested, ‘any investigation of art has to ponder the notion of God’s creation’. Vasari paid homage to the ‘ultimate initiator’ in his Lives of the Most Eminent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects and described Genesis as the adventures of a ‘creative intellect’ how might the early modern preoccupation with the idea of progress have been relevant to the creation of art? was creativity gendered in the period? Did the early modern version of sexual reproduction - in which women simply encased the precious, implicitly masculine kernel of creativity - affect contemporaries’ understanding of the way art was generated? can current theories and methodologies illuminate the process of art-making in the period? What can material data and scientific research methods, such as infra-red reflectography, dendro-chronology and chemical analysis of pigments, tell us? what happened when artistic aspiration collided with social and political realities or encountered financial and practical constraints? Papers might describe artistic indecision and frustration and examine the choices and creative opportunities that resulted. How did projects come to be altered or radically revised in scale and ambition? What were the implications of rejection in such cases as Caravaggio’s ‘St Matthew and the Angel’ for the Contarelli chapel in San Luigi dei Francesi? drawing on Victor Stoichita’s study of ‘meta-painting’, papers could explore how early modern artworks reflected on their own bringing into being and making. Vermeer’s ‘The Painter in his Studio’ (c.1666), ‘Las Meninas’ by Velázquez (1656-7), and Panini’s ‘Modern Rome’ and its pendant ‘Ancient Rome’ (1757) are examples of the many artworks from the period that take the process of artistic creation as their subject. We invite proposals from graduate students, junior scholars, curators, and conservators for papers that explore one or more of the above-mentioned issues in any artistic medium (painting, sculpture, architecture, decorative arts, print media, graphic arts and the intersections between them). Theoretical and technical approaches are equally welcome. We do not at present have a budget for travel and accommodation for speakers.

It could be argued that the First World War had a more profound influence on the politics and aesthetics of Russian visual culture than the October revolution. The metaphor of war was connected to the idea of innovation, and the quest to destroy the old aesthetics for the sake of creating new art. The avant-garde is by definition “embattled”, and for the Russian avant-garde artists, war signified revolution and liberation as well as the restructuring of social life and the human environment. Marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, this session is intended as an interdisciplinary project. Participants are invited to explore questions of transformation of Russian art, culture and national identity, currents of Russian modernism and cultural exchange through papers on painting, sculpture, graphics, cinema, music, theater, and architecture as well as exhibitions, and art education policies.

We are hugely grateful to the organisers, speakers, delegates and helpers who contributed towards making this such a sucessful event.    AAH2013 was attended by over 500 delegates, including speakers, convenors, keynotes, publishers and conference assistants. Delegates enjoyed two off-site visits, one to Windsor Castle which included rate and exclusive access to the prints and drawings archive, and the other to Sandham Memorial Chapel at Burghclere to experience Stanley Spencer's epic murals. Delegates also had access to some of the University's collections and archives, include Samuel Beckett's archive, Max Weber paintings and some of Whistler's drawings. Adrian Forty and Maarten Delbecke's opening keynote 'in conversation' about architecutral history prompted much discussion. Okwui Enwezor's keynote lecture about 'Contemporary African Art' spurred a myriad of broader debate and discourse, much of which took place at the drinks reception afterwards. So popular was this conference that we even ran out of Sandwiches on one day, which has never happened before. However, this was quickly rectified by the arrival of back-up provisions of sarnies, which apparently we much nicer! We very much hope to see you all again next year at our anniversary Annual Conference, AAH2014, at the RCA in London.]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Event - Summer University for year 12 students]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1096 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1096 education@courtauld.ac.uk http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/degreeprogrammes/admissions/open/summer-uni Deadline for applications – 29th April 2013]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - 'Rethinking Early Modernity: Methodological and Critical Innovation since the Ritual Turn']]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1094 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1094 http://crrs.ca/crrs-conferences/50th The Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary with a conference in honor of Edward Muir, whose innovative studies of Venetian politics and culture helped to establish cultural anthropology and ritual as major analytical frameworks for scholarship on early modern European history. Building from Muir's contribution to the field, the conference hopes to focus on the significance of the methodological changes that have characterized early modern research in history, literature and art history over the last thirty years and to reflect upon how these changes have affected our understanding of the importance of the period. The conference will take place at Victoria University in the University of Toronto on June 26 and 27. Call for Papers Interested scholars are invited to submit a paper proposal on topics that exemplify new directions of critical inquiry spurred by the methodological developments over this period, including, but not limited to, the meaning of popular culture, the role of gender, microhistory, the discovery of the body, the importance of ritual, etc. Topics are also welcome that consider how methodological innovations in early modern scholarship—particularly in recent years—have informed changes in the nature of humanities inquiry, broadly conceived. We welcome papers from all disciplines, geographical areas, and periods housed within the rubric of early modern Europe. Scholars of all ranks are welcome to submit papers, including graduate students. The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2013. Please submit a title, short abstract (250 words maximum), and brief CV to Mark Jurdjevic and Rolf Strom-Olsen at crrs50th@gmail.com.

In case of queries, email researchforum@courtauld.ac.uk Organised by: Dr William McManus (Terra Foundation for American Art Postdoctoral Fellow,The Courtauld) This one-day international conference highlights the more pressing interpretive issues around art made during the past eighty or so years. A motivation for this reappraisal is to ask how we might now understand and situate art from within the ending—or at least the transitioning to an acute new stage—of what is often regarded as the “American century”. Such periodization could in part be seen as cause for disciplinary anxiety that marks the potential formation of a new provincial elitism with its artifacts dwarfed by a more urgent global diaspora. Perhaps a mixed blessing though, this disparity it seems is amply compensated through an increased celebration of modern and contemporary American art as a new set of cultural strategies, movements and periods to be exported. As these different considerations must be measured in part against recent years, which are ultimately defined as episodic states of economic, “natural”, political and social crisis (all serving equally to neutralize critical engagement and historical concerns) papers will eschew an overall thematic focus to emphasize the varying and discontinuous concerns that led to this transformed cultural order. Topics covered will include the continuing development of art history as a contemporary discipline; the shifting relations between particularities of language and vision in the twentieth century; oppositions between scientific advances and counter-cultural tendencies in performance and film; and the present legacies of radicalism. The keynote lecture will be given by Molly Nesbit; other speakers include James Boaden, Eric de Bruyn, Larisa Dryansky, Suzanne Hudson and Luke Skrebowski. This conference has been made possible by the Terra Foundation for American Art.   For further information see: http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/researchforum/events/2013/summer/may18_VitalNarratives.shtml  ]]> Mon, 30 Nov 2015 13:22:23 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Queer Gothic: Difference and Sexuality in British Art and Architecture]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1079 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1079 ayla.lepine@yale.edu and reevem@queensu.ca Over the past four centuries, the Gothic style and its range of significations (including pre-modernity, romanticism, the foreign, and Catholicism) have been frequently employed as a locus or a cipher for sexuality. Within broadly Anglican, neo-classical visual cultures, the style could express non-normative, minoritized experience, manifesting the values and ideals of alternative subjectivities. Recent work in art history, literature and gender studies has shown that from the Early Modern period to the present, Gothic aesthetics and ideas were appropriated and critiqued as an alternative historicist landscape within which diverse constructions and expressions of self could take place. Neo-Gothic aesthetics can be productively explored as a method of visual communication wherein queerness has been imagined, signaled, displayed, and censored. For historians of British art, the Gothic Revival and queer theory are increasingly marshaled as ways of understanding the wider phenomena of sexuality, historiography, and resistance. This panel welcomes new research on queer Gothic across architecture, art, and design, which may speak to emerging ways of seeing tradition, innovation, futurity, utopianism, and the tensions between survival and revival. Your submission should include an abstract of 250-500 words, a letter ?explaining your interest and expertise in the subject as well as CAA ?membership status, and a CV with contact information (including summer ?contact information, if applicable).

Once primarily a worker’s strategy, sabotage has become a recurring artistic practice in contemporary art and one partaking in the ‘reflexive turn’ of late modernity’s aesthetic practices. From the 1960s onwards, the aesthetic notion of sabotage has been notoriously present in Latin American art as a central mechanism of resistance against censorship and a cultural practice confronting state violence, heterosexual normativity, and neoliberalism. This one-day symposium examines the uses - and limitations - of sabotage in Latin American contemporary art and attempts to place the notion within a larger reflection on the politics of the image, the aesthetics of violence, the tensions between art and spectacle and the position and responsibility of the artist in the face of political turmoil or systemic injustice.

In his unfinishedArcades Project, the notes for a large section on Fashion reveal Benjamin’s desire to read the medium of dress culturally, materially, historically, and through his own brand of Marxist analysis. Roland Barthes developed a semiotic system for interpreting the discourse of fashion. Barthes’The Fashion System, the seminal work on fashion and semiotics, suggests fashion can be understood as a language composed of codes, signs, and significations. Both Barthes and Benjamin wrote on fashion’s relationship to temporality, memory and history, and both critically investigated the potential of dress as metaphor in literary and visual analysis. In the vein of such work as Caroline Evans’ Fashion at the Edge (2003), which utilizes Benjamin’s writing on fashion and time, and Malcolm Barnard’sFashion as Communication (1996), which engages with Barthesian semiology, this conference invites new critical readings of fashion that engage with Benjaminian and Barthesian theories. For this conference we invite researchers in fashion studies, dress history, costume studies, art history, visual studies, cultural studies, history, literature or other relevant disciplines to submit papers that engage with themes of temporality/chronology, semiotics, history, memory, and the process of fashion. In addition to papers that apply Benjaminian and Barthesian theories, we also encourage papers that present critical readings of Benjamin’s and/or Barthes’ writing on fashion and clothing. A non-exhaustive list of topics that might be addressed in relation to Barthes and Benjamin: the study of dress through literary sources; the study of history through the study of dress; fashion as an historical medium; the operational mechanism of fashion as a system; textile/photographic archives, memory and dress; fashion and temporality; fantasy and desire in historical dress; semiotics and fashion; commodity fetishism and clothing; historical and cultural readings of fashion cycles/processes; spaces of fashion/fashion productions; the operational modes and movements of fashion; the place of ‘anti-fashion’ in the fashion system; semiotic readings of staging/displaying/exhibiting fashion. Caroline Evans is our confirmed keynote speaker.
