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.  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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. They are inviting papers on any aspect of the cultural practice across all of Northern Europe in the period circa 1430-1650. These practices can include, but are not limited to: • literature • visual and material culture • musicology • philosophy • theology • politics • scientific practices and technologies They are particularly interested in studies exploring alternative cultural geographies, challenging existing conceptualizations and periodizations of the Renaissance in the North, and/or establishing continuities and ruptures with earlier and later epochs. Part of their intention, however, in having an open, unthemed issue, is to gauge where the most interesting work is being done and what questions are being asked by scholars working on Northern Renaissance culture across a wide range of disciplines.

Scholars, working with conservators and scientists, are gaining insight into the process of art making from raw material to finished object, as well as the strategic deployment of materials both for their aesthetic qualities and for their power to signify. The Getty Villa theme, “The Classical World in Context: Egypt,” will focus on relations between the cultures of the classical world and Egypt from prehistory to the coming of Islam. Through trade, warfare, diplomacy, and other methods of exchange, these civilizations had a crucial, and often reciprocal, impact on cultural trajectories in both spheres.

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.

It is about the particular way art is translated into a new medium, and how that translation changes it. The history of art in pop music is a parallel cultural history: it’s art history through the other end of the telescope. It’s the history of art’s changing public meaning. Click here for details.

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  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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.

More details of the lecture: Art in renaissance Europe and art in traditional Islamic societies could hardly appear more different: the former so in love with startling illusions and glamorous bodies, the latter so set on pattern and script and so opposed to the figure. Yet there is a case to be made that there is a deep connection between the two. Julian Bell, the author of 'Mirror of the World: A New History of Art (Thames & Hudson 2010), explores that case and asks how it might shed light on contemporary cultural situations.

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. Keynote speakers: Michaela Giebelhausen (University of Essex) and Suzanne MacLeod (University of Leicester).

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. Participants not wishing to join the drawing class can enjoy exploring the British Museum before returning to Watts Gallery by coach.

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.

They form a populist, frank, and aesthetically superlative erotic tradition. Until relatively recently, western moral standards concealed the delights of shunga prints from audiences outside Japan. Majella Munro will be examining the place of Shunga in the history of Eroticism, starting with ancient eastern manuals of sexual instruction such as the Kama Sutra, and concluding with recent work by contemporary artists inspired by the vitality and charm of Shunga prints, tracing their history from the neon-packaged fantasies of Tokyo to the refined courtesan district of the city's Samurai past. Biography Majella Munro is an art historian, journalist and Japanologist, whose research focuses on censorship and cultural repression. She is interested in art production under totalitarian political regimes, inter- and trans-national exchange within the avant-garde, and the sociological study of erotic art. Her first book, Understanding Shunga, on Japanese erotic art, was published by Erotic Review Books in November 2008. Her current research focuses on the response of Japanese avant-gardists to environmental issues. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Tate’s Asia-Pacific Research Centre, researching a monograph entitled Living Close to Nature: Japanese Artists and the Environment from Hiroshima to Fukushima.  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - New Semester Programme - Sotheby's Institute of Art]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1196 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1196 sothebysinstitute.com ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - New Journal - 'Open Arts Journal']]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1194 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1194 http://openartsjournal.org/ The inaugural issue, spanning art, art history, literature, critical theory and cultural geography, is entitled 'Cosmopolitanism as Critical and Creative Practice' – guest edited by Eleanor Byrne and Berthold Schoene from the Manchester Metropolitan University.

Crucial to this undertaking is accounting for how, from prehistory to the present, cultures around the world conceive of and construct their present and the concept of presentness visually. Through scholarly writings from a number of academic disciplines in the humanities, together with contributions from artists and filmmakers, Contemporaneity maps the diverse ways in which cultures use visual means to record, define, and interrogate their historical context and presence in time. For our forthcoming issue, we seek submissions from scholars, artists, and filmmakers. Possible topics or areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: The concept of the present across time and cultures The persistence of the past in the present Cultural exchange, temporal disjunction, historical coincidence The simultaneity of conflicting kinds of time Messianic time, circular time, the eternal return, the event, everyday life, historical time, timelessness Teleology, apocalypse, the end of time, the end of art, the end of history Tradition, decadence, renaissance, restoration, avant-garde, modernization Phenomenology of time Nostalgia, melancholy, boredom Chronophobia and chronomania Making time visible, representing time through images and texts, narrating The life of images and reception history Methodological problems concerning the writing of art history or film history Proposals for book and exhibition reviews, interviews or scholarly discussions will also be considered. We encourage submissions from artists and filmmakers, recognizing that these submissions may take many forms. Proposals can be directed to the editors at contemporaneity@mail.pitt.edu The deadline for submissions is September 30, 2013.

How can we better understand the relationships between visual culture and activist practices? There are ways in which art can take the form of political/social activism and there are also ways in which activism takes specific, and sometimes surprising, visual forms that are not always aligned with or recognizable by art-world frameworks. How can we engage in conversations about abstract or oblique visual activism, for instance as is demanded in conditions of extreme censorship? How can we approach the complexity of governmental or commercial ‘visual activism’ to better address hegemonies of visual culture (for example, in advertising and the mass media)? What becomes of the temporal lag that attends such images, when the politics of visual production are only made legible in retrospect, with historical distance? How does the past become a form of ‘visual activism’ in the present? To what degree do forms of visual activism travel, and in what ways are they necessarily grounded in locally specific knowledge and geographically specific spaces?   Presentations should respond to these questions or related topics and may take the form of scholarly papers (20 minutes), artist talks (20 minutes), short performances (5 to 30 minutes), or lighting-round interventions (5 minutes). Proposals should include a 400-word abstract, links to websites with additional publications or relevant images and information, and a CV. Please send proposals to edu@sfmoma.org (with ‘visual activism’ as the subject line) no later than October 1, 2013.   The conference is convened by Julia Bryan-Wilson (Associate Professor, Modern and Contemporary Art, UC Berkeley), Jennifer A. González (Associate Professor, History of Art and Visual Culture, Contemporary Art, Race and Representation, UC Santa Cruz) and Dominic Willsdon (Leanne and George Roberts Curator of Education and Public Programs, SFMOMA) and will take place at the Brava Theater Center and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA.   Please email edu@sfmoma.org to be added to the mailing list to receive updates about the conference such as registration, the calendar of events and participants.]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Book - nteractive Art and Embodiment: The Implicit Body as Performance]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1183 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1183 http://www.amazon.com/Interactive-Art-Embodiment-Implicit-Performance/dp/1780240090 This book shows how interactive artworks ask us to perform rigorous philosophies of the body. 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. Arts Future Book is published by Gylphi Ltd and is supported by an international editorial board. The Arts Future Book project has been explained, modelled (and remodelled) in the open-access journal article/artwork: ‘Is Art History Too Bookish’ by series editor Charlotte Frost.

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.

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.

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.    ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[Funding Opportunity - The Berlin Prize - Call for Applications 2014-2015]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1159 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1159 http://www.americanacademy.de/home/fellows/applications or contact: The American Academy in Berlin Attn: Fellows Selection Am Sandwerder 17-19 14109 Berlin, Germany Telephone +49-30-804-83-0 Fax +49-30-804-83-111 cs@americanacademy.de ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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 ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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/]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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.  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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.]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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. Students from outside London are encouraged to apply to their institutions for funding to participate in the symposium.

In collaboration with the Henry Moore Institute, New Voices investigates the intersections of art and decolonisation to ask what the specific implications of decolonisation are for art and art history. This symposium turns attention to the geo-political struggles, revolutions and cultural recalibrations that artists and art historians have championed, challenged and negotiated as imperialism and colonialism weakened their grip and took on new forms. New Voices aims to identify the roles art has played in the volatile moments at the end of various empires in order to ask how has art depicted and enabled the production of cultural identities amidst rapid political change seen in examples that include the decline of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, decolonisation in the twentieth century, the fall of the Berlin wall, Indian independence and the spirit of liberation that swept across Africa. New Voices is also interested in addressing how the visual arts has resisted and altered the terms of domination or homogeneity in the contexts such as the Arab Spring and international Indigenous struggles for self-determination.

The lecture will include hand-outs of exact facsimiles of four letters (dated 1557, 1762, 1828, and c.1888) as an aid to examining continuities and transformations in letterwriting practices and to help understand how folding patterns and filing systems are represented in paintings.

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!

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  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +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.

HEFCE, the Higher Education Funding Council for England, and RCUK, the umbrella body of Research Councils, are facilitating this move to open access, and as such have been consulting widely. As an organisation which both publishes an academic journal and which represents the interests of a wide vareity of academics, this is clearly a crucial issue for the Association. The Trustees have, collectively, fed input into an official response to HEFCE's most recent Call for Advice, with specific reference to the particular issues affecting our discipline, including our need to be able to use third-party images from agencies whose standard licenses may not allow their reproduction in online, open access formats. Our full response can be downloaded from here (PDF). If you have any questions or concerns about Open Access issues, please do not hesitate to contact us via admin@aah.org.uk; please also note that we are running a session on these issues at our Annual Conference in Reading on Saturday 13th April between 1pm and 2pm.  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Event - AQA CPD Event for Teachers - 'Understanding and interpreting architecture']]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1073 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1073  Understanding and interpreting architecture Summer 2013 Course focus Would you like to: have a better understanding of architecture? become more familiar with specialist vocabulary? learn to identify different architectural styles? discover how architectural analysis can lead to interpretation?

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.

Invoking the concept of the readymade and altering its scope confirmed a style that was also enhanced by a sociological interest in the quotidian. Restany’s ideology of Nouveau Réalisme developed alongside capitalism in post-war France and the paradigm shift from quasi-Marxist cultural reconstructions to the accumulation of wealth. Confronted with the questions proposed by previous avant-gardes, the artists associated with the movement at its genesis effectively renegotiated the discourse surrounding the autonomous work of art or formal object by choosing to engage with the promise of economic and technological progress. It could be said that Restany's claims pertained more to a way of life than to a way of making art and yet, as an art critic, he was bound by his discipline. This lecture seeks to liberate him somewhat by taking a closer look at his modernist arguments alongside selected artworks and the wider philosophical terrain of contemporary aesthetics. Wood Roberdeau is a lecturer on the undergraduate Art History programme at Goldsmiths, University of London. His current research addresses the capacity for artworks to inform common experience in terms of duration, relationality, urban and rural domesticities, culinary materialism, and object-oriented ontology. This is the fourth annual lecture associated with the RIHA Journal, the Journal of the International Association of Research Institutes in the History of Art, launched in 2010. It represents an ambitious effort to coordinate and support the multiple approaches to art historical research in RIHA’s many member countries through the production of a freely accessible online journal. The Journal makes use of local editors from all the member institutes, including The Courtauld, to peer review and publish outstanding articles in this field. Managed by Dr Regina Wenninger in the Zentralinstituts für Kunstgeschichte in Munich, the Journal is supported by the German government in the form of specially adapted ‘Plone’ software for multi-site editing.

At Close Quarters: The English Country House and its Collections provides a unique opportunity for the sustained and in-situ study of English country houses and their collections. Applications are now invited for entry in September 2013, with four scholarships of £1,000 available towards the cost of the fees for students who enrol in At Close Quarters (details below). The History of Art MA consists of four modules and a dissertation. The MA and this option can be pursued full-time (in one year) or part-time (over two years). At Close Quarters is an option for two of those modules (both taught in the Spring semester) and consists of: One three-hour seminar per week for ten weeks taught by members of the School’s faculty, including leading historians of British, Italian, French, Spanish and Netherlandish art and architecture, and Five days’ intensive and all-inclusive residential study at Houghton Hall, with visits to other country houses in Norfolk. This period of study will be led and organised by Dr Andrew Moore, a Director of the internationally-renowned Attingham Trust Summer School for the study of historic houses and collections in England. At each site, students taking At Close Quarters will learn about significant aspects of the house’s creation, contents and curating from visiting tutors, including experts who teach on the Summer School. At Close Quarters therefore offers students an unrivalled opportunity to immerse themselves in studying this topic for an entire semester, during which they will learn about the history, collections and management of English country houses, in-depth, on the spot and with the resources provided by the School and the Trust, two organisations renowned for academic excellence in the study of art history and cultural heritage. Topics addressed during the module will include aspects of the history of British portraiture; Grand Tour collecting and the taste for Old Master paintings; the production, display and conservation of tapestry hangings; the relationship between form, function and meaning in furniture design; the architectural treatise and the Italian villa; the history of gardens; the city, the country house and early modern sociability, and the presentation and display of the country house as a visitor attraction. For the two additional modules in the History of Art MA degree programme, students can choose from the range offered within the School. Recent MA modules have addressed the arts of ancient Egypt, Byzantine Rome, medieval England, early modern Europe, Britain and its empire during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, early twentieth-century America, and late twentieth-century modernism. Students will also research and write a 15,000-word MA dissertation, which will be supervised by a member of faculty within the School and which may concern a topic arising from At Close Quarters. Full-time tuition fees for students taking the MA in the History of Art including At Close Quarters during the academic year 2013/14 will be in the region of £7,000 for Home/EU students and £13,900 for International students. This includes a supplement to cover all accommodation, meals, transport and entry fees during the residential component of the module. The Attingham Trust and the School of Art History and World Art Studies have agreed to offer four £1,000 scholarships towards the cost of the fees for students enrolled on At Close Quarters. These scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need. Applicants wishing to be considered for a scholarship will be asked to supply a short statement of financial need. Further details about the MA in the History of Art (full-time and part-time), postgraduate fees and scholarships, and how to apply for the MA can be found here. Entry requirements are typically a BA Hons 2:1 or equivalent in a humanities or social sciences discipline.

About the School of Art History and World Art Studies, UEA We have a long-standing international reputation for academic excellence; ranked 1st in the UK for world-leading research in the latest Research Assessment Exercise, we are one of the most important and highly-rated History of Art departments in the UK. Our graduates go on to high profile posts in such prestigious institutions as the British Museum, V&A, Tate and Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, as well as leading History of Art departments, publishers, the commercial art world and the cultural heritage sector. We are experts in classical, medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, modern and contemporary art, and our interests include not only European and North American art, but also the arts of Africa, Asia (including Japan), South America and the Pacific. We engage with all forms of visual and material creativity from oil painting, sculpture and drawing through to architecture, photography, video and installation art. We teach small groups of students in a friendly, supportive and open environment, supported by great facilities. This is why the Guardian University Guide consistently ranks us among the top three History of Art departments in the UK for student satisfaction with teaching and feedback, for staff-student ratio and for the quality of student resources. The School is based in Norman Foster’s world-famous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, an icon of modern design, which contains an astounding art collection with major internationally-renowned works by artists such as Francis Bacon, Edgar Degas, Jacob Epstein, Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso. Students work in close proximity to this collection, “perhaps the greatest resource of its type on any British campus” according to the Times Good University Guide. About The Attingham Trust Founded in 1952 as The Attingham Trust and named after the neoclassical house in Shropshire at which the Summer School was first held, The Attingham Trust has built and sustained an international reputation for academic excellence. It offers specialised residential study courses, primary for people professionally engaged in the field, on country houses, their collections and settings, and on the history and contents of English royal palaces. It collaborates with a number of heritage organisations and museums, including the National Trust, English Heritage, The Royal Collection, Historic Royal Palaces and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Members of the staff of these organisations are regularly involved in teaching and others attend the Trust’s courses, which are highly competitive and restricted to those with an architectural, historical, conservationist or academic background, or a close professional involvement with the fine and decorative arts. Among its courses is the highly-regarded Attingham Summer School, which offers a unique and strenuous eighteen-day course, taught in-situ within about twenty-five historic houses, for a selected group of museum curators, architectural historians, conservationists and academics. Through At Close Quarters, the Attingham experience of contextual country house studies is being offered as part of a postgraduate degree that will also provide an insight into the issues encountered by owners, curators and property managers of the English country house. About Norfolk With its large agricultural estates, coastal proximity to the ports of northern Europe and thriving commercial cities, the county of Norfolk was once England’s most important political and economic region outside London. As a consequence, Norfolk has a substantial collection of country houses, including some of the most important examples still in private hands. Evidence for Norfolk’s historical importance can be found in the medieval origins of the moated manor house of Oxburgh Hall, and in the Jacobean houses at Blickling and Felbrigg, as well as Raynham Hall, a remarkably early example of European influence upon English domestic architecture. Raynham features the work of the leading eighteenth-century architect and designer, William Kent, which can also be seen to magnificent effect in two of the finest Palladian houses to have been built in England: Holkham Hall, the quintessential Grand Tour house, and Houghton Hall, built by Sir Robert Walpole, Britain’s first prime minister, in order to house his great collection of European master paintings and classical sculpture. Norfolk is also home to some of Sir John Soane’s earliest architectural work, as well as outstanding examples of large Arts & Crafts houses. Many of these houses, like others addressed in At Close Quarters, contain significant collections of fine and decorative art (from the medieval period through to the present day), as well as important antiquities, libraries and archives, making Norfolk an ideal region in which to study and research forms of artistic practice, patronage and collecting, as well as the history, contents, management and presentation of English country houses.  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Event - Devils and Dolls: Dichotomous Depictions of the Child]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1037 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1037 http://devils-dolls-conference.weebly.com Deadline for booking: 12th March 2013]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - 'Fifth Biennial Art History Symposium, “Palimpsest: The Layered Object.”']]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1036 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1036 arthsymposium@scad.edu Deadline for submission: May 15, 2013   The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) invites participation in the Fifth Biennial Art History Symposium, “Palimpsest: The Layered Object.” Feb. 28–March 1, 2014. The media, techniques and materials of art-making comprise layers of knowledge and bear traces of the physical and intellectual act of creation. The art object changes as successive layers build-up over time or strip away material and evidence. A process of creation similarly yields destruction as new covers old, possibly masking or revealing the underlying trace. “Palimpsest: The Layered Object” will explore the relations between aesthetic inscriptions, erasures and the historical conditions of their media, whether drawing, film, incunabula, painting, print, sculpture, textiles, architecture or urban space. We seek to mine history, excavate knowledge and find meaning in the residue between layers of creation. We invite interdisciplinary contributions that merge art history with other fields and seek topics that explore the beginning of inscription as well as the remains of its erasure.

This conference also seeks to examine Pre-Raphaelitism as a bridge between Romanticism and Aestheticism, and to engage with current critical work regarding its relationship to Modernism in literature. The breadth and diversity of Pre-Raphaelite art, literature and design will be drawn on in order to consider major questions such as: What is Pre-Raphaelitism? Where does the movement begin and end? Who should be included or excluded? What are its major influences, and to what extent has it influenced other artists and movements? How have perceptions of Pre-Raphaelitism changed or remained the same since its nineteenth-century beginnings? FORMAT AND THEMES This will be a two-day conference, organized jointly by Professor Christiana Payne and Dr Dinah Roe (Oxford Brookes University), Colin Harrison (Ashmolean Museum) and Dr Alastair Wright (Oxford University). Academic sessions will be held at the Ashmolean Museum (Friday 13th) and St John’s College (Saturday 14th). A programme of guided walks and talks around Pre-Raphaelite sites in Oxford will be held on Sunday 15th September. We invite proposals for papers on all aspects of Pre-Raphaelite work, especially with a cross-disciplinary focus. Papers by current or recently graduated research students are welcome, as well as those by more established scholars. Topics for discussion might include, but are not limited to: The interaction of word and image in Pre-Raphaelite painting, writing and design Reactions to the exhibition, Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde The events of 1848-50, and the original aims of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood The importance of science and technology International contexts, reception and influences Pre-Raphaelitism and religious and intellectual history (for example, the ideas of Carlyle, Ruskin, the Oxford Movement) The Pre-Raphaelites and Oxford, including new research on paintings and drawings in the Ashmolean Museum The relationship between painting and photography Music in Pre-Raphaelite art and literature The Pre-Raphaelites as art and literary critics The significance of collectors and patrons of the Pre-Raphaelites Women in Pre-Raphaelitism, as objects of representation and/or as artists and writers Urban and natural landscapes in Pre-Raphaelite art and literature Poetic innovations of the Pre-Raphaelites Developments in technique (painting, materials, sculpture and frames) The influence of Pre-Raphaelitism on architecture and public space Portrayals of Pre-Raphaelites in biography, fiction, film and television Print culture and journalism The effect of digital culture on the study of Pre-Raphaelitism CONTACT US Professor Christiana Payne and Dr Dinah Roe cjepayne@brookes.ac.uk d.roe@brookes.ac.uk If you are interested in attending as a delegate please email to reserve a place.

The presence of these non-conforming bodies not only challenged official narratives of the war but also fundamentally undermined dominant discourses of ‘masculinity’, ‘beauty’ and ‘heroism’. This paper will examine the treatment and representation of these veterans and the diverse, and often contradictory, meanings with which they, and their bodies, were invested. 11.45 - 12.00 Transfer to Bradford College 12.00 - 13.00 Lunch in the Bradford Gallery, Bradford College and an opportunity to view the WAR exhibition in the Bradford Gallery SESSION 2 Venue Bradford College, Lister Lecture Theatre 13.00 - 13.45 Dr Patrick Eyres, Editor/Publisher, New Arcadian Journal The Naval Portraits of Eric Kennington, 1940: Sailors and Warships as Icons of British Masculinity. Accuracy, intensity and beauty – these keywords were selected in 1945 to encapsulate the vital ingredients of Britain’s official war art. The paper will explore how they characterise the naval portraits through which Eric Kennington created icons of British masculinity by dignifying ‘ordinary’ naval ratings and by personalising the heroic roles performed by the warships in which they served. In addition Kennington wanted to show civilian factory workers the ‘person’ that used the weapons they manufactured. As propaganda assets the portraits were exhibited in London and New York, and mass distributed through reproduction in books and magazines and as postcards. 13.45 – 14.30 Pam Brook, Lecturer, Bradford College The Heroic and the Brutalised: Representations of women in Britain & France during the Second World War I intend to examine themes of the representation of femininity during and just after the Second World War. This would involve examining images of women held in the collection of the imperial war museum in their archives of painting and photography. Many of the images were of a ‘heroic’ nature showing women engaged in war work and often in non-traditional roles such as munitions, farm work and transport. They were often shown in uniform or in garments that were not typically associated with feminine dress but yet project an idealised concept of womanhood. There are a small number of images that indicate the significant role undertaken by women in the Maquis or French Resistance and these contrast with women who were accused of collaboration following the liberation of France where they were subject to a process of defeminisation and of public humiliation. The paper would use methodologies that relate to fashion theory, social theory, feminist theory and theories of taboo and danger. 14.30 - 15.00 Break 15.00 – 15.45 Manya Doñaque, Lecturer, Bradford College WAR: Artist's responses and interpretations of conflict Inspired by the artworks of different artists the objective of this paper is to discuss different approaches on the subject of war, bringing other perspectives or points of view to this difficult but unavoidable theme. Concentrating on the subject of torture; I will compare other ‘oeuvre’ with two of my most recent pieces of work: an installation and an artist's book. My aim is to identify how different artists have portrayed and dealt with the subject and how we as artists have a 'duty' to reflect, comment and question what has been imposed or given. By analysing and exploring artists representations of trauma and torture, individual art practices, approaches and strategies are compared. 15.45 – 16.30 Plenary discussion 16.30 - 17.30 Drinks reception in the Bradford Gallery , followed by a meal in Bradford (tbc) Day 2 Friday 22nd February 2013 SESSION 3 Venue The Room at the Top, the National Media Museum MORNING 09.00 - 09.30 Conference Registration and Coffee 09.30 – 09.40 David Smith, Dean for Higher education Welcome 09.40 – 10.00 War Poetry recital.

War Ruin as representation; shifting cultural perspectives of England, France and Germany: identity and signification Up until the second world war the ruin had a somewhat comfortable status as something which was the long lived spectator to the sublime powers of nature or as the representation of long past civilisations, corrupted and decayed, from which we can draw both warning and comfort. They had a distance of ancient history and would form the framework for stories and imaginings, nostalgic and melancholic in nature. The ruin of the 21st century landscape, however is constantly having its value re-assessed in contemporary cultural terms and as such is a dynamic form in both meaning and purpose. It is within this context that I wish to take a brief look at the ruins of the second world war. Do these ruins imbue the usual sense of mortality, melancholy and nostalgia? They do not. These are not the ruins of the sublime powers of nature and the on-going passage of time, they are the apocalyptic aftermath of extreme and explosive human violence. At the time war artists like Graham Sutherland recorded the instant devastation but today 67 years after the end of the second world war there are the remains of this specific event scattered through Europe. 10.45 – 11.30 Adrian Budge, Head of Public Engagement, the Royal Armouries The Camera & Captivity: Photography and Allied Prisoners of War, 1914-18 Photographs of Second World War Allied POWs are fairly familiar, but it was in the Great War that photography was first used extensively in POW camps. These images are much less well-known and yet they provide insights into life ‘behind the wire’ that add to written accounts. In addition, the portraits of prisoners provide an unusual twist on the conventions of early 20th century portrait photography and raise interesting questions about the insights that the camera can provide into the lives and attitudes of soldiers being held captive by their enemy ‘for the duration’. 11.30 - 11.45 Break 11.45 – 12.15 Deb Singleton, Director of Bradford Animation Festival.

As the language of commercialism has become louder, the language of high culture has become quieter. – James B. Twitchell, Twenty Ads that Shook the World Throughout the modern period, advertising and consumer culture have dominated everyday life; moreover, the trappings of commercialism permeate much of supposed ‘high culture’. Commodities clutter the pages of novels from Dickens and Zola to Bret Easton Ellis; works by Joyce and DeLillo are enlivened by advertising jingles and slogans; brands and trademarks pervade the practice of artists from Picasso to Warhol and the visualisation of consumer desire is appropriated and challenged in the work of Richard Hamilton and Martha Rosler. Whether celebrating or critiquing advertising and consumer culture, art reflects our enduring fascination with them, despite research into the psychological effects of advertising, concerns over the evils of consumerism, and the often sinister nature of market research. The recent television show Mad Men, for instance, has revivified interest and scholarly debate surrounding the power of advertising and the consumer, as well as restaging debates around sexism, truth and the heteronormative ideal. Meanwhile, sociology in the wake of Erving Goffman continues to explore advertising’s uses and abuses of gender, identity and desire. Countervailing against consumerism and advertising’s many critics, theorists such as Michel de Certeau and the critical movement Thing Theory have endeavoured to examine advertising and consumer culture from a standpoint that goes beyond the model of the ‘passive consumer’ or Marx’s account of commodity fetishism. We invite abstracts for 20 minute papers from postgraduate students and early-career researchers working in the modern period (1850-present day) across the humanities and social sciences. This conference aims to provoke interdisciplinary discussion about advertising and consumer culture. We therefore welcome papers that address these topics from historical, sociological, political or anthropological perspectives, as well as papers that analyse advertisements themselves and the representation of advertising and modern consumer culture in literature, film, television, theatre, and visual art.

As an anti-Victorian movement, the British Fin de Siècle is often read forwards and absorbed into a ‘long twentieth century’, in which it takes the shape of a prehistory or an embryonic form of modernism. By contrast, Fin-de-Siècle authors and critics looked back to the past in order to invent their present and imagine their future. Just at the time when the concept of ‘Victorian’ crystallized a distinct set of literary and cultural practices, the radical break with the immediate past found in Romanticism an alternative poetics and politics of the present. The Fin de Siècle played a distinctive and crucial role in the reception of Romanticism. Romanticism emerged as a category, a dialogue of forms, a movement, a style, and a body of cultural practices. The Fin de Siècle established the texts of major authors such as Blake and Shelley, invented a Romantic canon in a wider European and comparative context, but also engaged in subversive reading practices and other forms of underground reception. The aim of this conference is to foster a dialogue between experts of the two periods. We welcome proposals for papers on all aspects of Fin-de-Siècle Romanticism, especially with a cross-disciplinary or comparative focus. Topics might include: bibliophilia and bibliomania collecting cults editing objects performance poetics politics print culture sociability continuities and discontinuities Romanticism and Decadence Romantic Classicism European Romanticism and the English Fin de Siècle Deadline for abstracts: 30 January 2013 Please email 300-word abstracts to romanticfin@bbk.ac.uk Conference organisers: Luisa Calè (Birkbeck) and Stefano Evangelista (Oxford) This conference is co-organised by the Birkbeck Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies and the English Faculty of Oxford University with the support of the MHRA]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - Liquidity-Practice Research Symposium]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1007 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/1007 Call for Papers This one-­?day practice research symposium sets out to explore the many articulations, explorations, and manifestations of ‘liquidity’in contemporary visual and material culture, history and theory. The symposium offers a unique opportunity for practitioners, researchers and scholars working across different fields to engage with any topic related to ‘liquidity’ broadly conceived. ‘Liquid modern life is a daily rehearsal of universal transience.

It is affiliated with VU University Amsterdam. For more information (in Dutch), see www.tijdschriftkunstlicht.nl. With Mind the Map, Kunstlicht aims to investigate the artistic power of the map. Why are so many artists drawn to this ‘medium’? In the twentieth century the ontological status of the map changed. ‘Critical’ or ‘radical’ cartography shifted the focus from the map as an arrested status quo, to ‘mapping’ as a performative and political act. Also outside the field of geography, concepts such as ‘story maps’, ‘narrative cartography’ and ‘soft atlas’ pop up ever more. In anthropology cartography has been used as an instrument to fathom the subjective experience of the everyday surroundings. These developments are reflected in the visual arts. Stanley Brouwn’s This Way Brouwn (1961) already alluded to an alleged relation between cartography and the individual perception of space long before this became a topos in anthropology. Walter Benjamin’s wish to graphically express the ‘bios’, the Raum des Lebens, on a map, has curiously come true in the Situationist International’s psychogeographical collages, in Richard Long’s ‘hiking maps’, and in On Kawara’s cartographic diaries (I Went, 1968-1979). For others, such as Kim Levin (see: ‘Farewell to Modernism’ (1979)), the map symbolized the urge to look outward, and escape from the self-reflexivity of the artwork as sanctioned by Modernism. Nowadays, art with cartographic material is no longer a rarity. Why do so many artists find the map so interesting? What explains the remarkable renaissance of this ‘medium’? The board of editors welcomes proposals for theoretical discussions on, among other topics, the changing ontological status of the map, or on the map as a device to order and visualize information. Art-historical analyses and original takes on specific case studies are also anticipated. Proposals (200 – 300 words) with attached résumés can be sent to redactie@tijdschriftkunstlicht.nl before 15 February 2013. 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 we prefer native Dutch speakers to write in their native language. Authors who publish in Kunstlicht will receive three complimentary copies. Kunstlicht does not provide an author’s honorarium. Two years following publication, papers will be submitted to the freely accessible online archive at www.tijdschriftkunstlicht.nl/site/index.php/archief.

Considering the development of intermedial studies, can we still use the singular 'medium', and/or without any prefix? If 'medium' is not a criterion for artistic practices anymore, does it nevertheless keep a meaning that would be specific to the field of visual arts? Or else, does the notion of medium itself imply that we take into account a field of practices and discourses exceeding art history? How is medium different, if it is, from media? Can we reflect on the visual arts without referring to the 'medium'?  History/epistemology How can we analyze the survival of the ‘medium’ as a term, no matter what it embraces as a concept, after postmodernism? In this respect, did postmodernist criticism, as it put an end to the medium-based categorization of the artistic field, represent a real break into practices and discourses? How does the medium impulse different methodologies today in art history? Which of the artistic production or art theory still fertilizes the medium? Why does the notion of medium persist, as critics advocate the extension of contemporary art beyond medial and disciplinary boundaries? Institutions Is it possible to map the medium, according to geographical and linguistic criteria, intellectual traditions and institutional partitions? To what extent do museums shape the questions addressed to the medium, as they are divided into medial departments for conservation reasons? How do they, as well as art centres, influence our perception of contemporary art through the issue of medium? What are the purpose and aspiration of monomedial exhibitions today? How do these exhibitions deal with the task of defining a medium? The symposium will take place on Friday, March 22, 2013, at the Université de Montréal, and will be supported by its Departement of art history and cinematographic studies.  We invite art historians, art critics, curators and artists to send their paper proposals (300 words maximum) in pdf or word (.doc), designed for a 15 to 20-minute oral presentation, in French or in English. We will consider papers presenting achieved results, as well as ongoing research. The proposal must be accompanied by a curriculum vitae. Both documents will be sent jointly to the organizers, Ji-Yoon Han (ji-yoon.han[at]umontreal.ca) and Laurence Schmidlin (laurence.schmidlin[at]gmail.com), by February 3, 2013. The participants will be notified by February 6, 2013. Please note that we will unfortunately not be able to take charge of travel and accommodation costs.

The series builds upon and critically engages with Svetlana Alpers’ ground-breaking book, The Art of Describing. Dutch Art in the Seventeenth Century (1983). It addresses a range of visual materials, including bone and wax, tables and charts, as well as oil paintings and prints. The lectures will explore the quest for knowledge with reference to physical spaces such as the humanist cabinet, the Kunstkammer and the anatomy theatre.

Art, Science and Religion in the Dutch Golden Age The Dutch Republic of the Golden Age was famous not only for its art production, but also at the heart of the fundamental reconfiguration of knowledge that took place in Europe during the early modern period. Amsterdam especially was a nodal point, of both the emerging world trade and the production of works of art and the development of new scientific ideas. While ‘art’ and ‘science’ are commonly considered to be two distinct expressions of human culture, Eric Jorink will argue that the two were complementary, rather than opposites. Focusing on images depicting the natural world (for example, still life and landscape paintings, or of natural rarities) he will demonstrate that these works were more than expressions of vanitas, or the result of a presumed objective 'art of describing'. According to reformed orthodoxy, nature was God's second revelation to mankind. Observing Creation and representing it on paper, in paint, or in a cabinet of curiosities, was a tribute to the Divine Architect. Eric Jorink studied History at the University of Groningen and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. In 2004 he gained his PhD cum laude at the University of Groningen with a thesis on the relation between science and religion in the Dutch Golden Age. Since 2001 Jorink has been working as a researcher at the Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) in The Hague. He has published widely on early modern scientific culture, including Reading the Book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, 1575-1715 (2010); together with Bart Ramakers, eds, Art and Science in the Early Modern Netherlands (2011); with Dirk van Miert, eds, Isaac Vossius (1618-1689) between Science and Scholarship (2012) and, most recently with Ad Maas, eds, Newton and the Netherlands. How Isaac Newton was Fashioned in the Dutch Republic (2012). Currently, he is finishing a biography of the Amsterdam microscopist Johannes Swammerdam (1637-1680). In 2012-13 he is co-teaching the Andrew W Mellon Foundation/ Research Forum Mellon MA special option on Visualizing Knowledge in the Early Modern Netherlands, c.1550-1730 with Professor Joanna Woodall..

More than 50 art historians have contributed (mostly essays) over the years, and we have a core group of amazing scholars that regularly contribute content. Where we desperately need help now is with non-Western content. We have some Islamic art and this area is growing but there is very little Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Pre-Columbian, Native (North) American, Pacific, and, most embarrassingly, zero sub-Saharan African art. We look for essays that are about 800 words. Essays generally fit into one of two categories, either they are broad introductions to a culture (see the introductory essays on ancient Egypt for example) or they focus on a canonical work of art (or something that should be canonical). Its best to spend so time on Smarthistory to see whats there, and to get a feel for our style. Tone is important to us. We work hard to make the content friendly and inviting but art historically sound. We particularly emphasize the experiential—essentially what so many good professors do when they talk to their classes about something they love. Sometimes we start with an anecdote or something that contextualizes the object for the reader. We try avoid a scholarly tone and we use specialized vocabulary consciously rather than reflexively (we always try to include a brief parenthetical definition when we do). Everything on Smarthistory has been contributed and is under a Creative Commons licence: CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 US. While we don't think contributions will count for much with a tenure or promotion committee, contributors do reach a world that is hungry for high quality educational content.

We welcome contributions that address notions of identity across all periods and contexts, at both ‘micro’ and ‘macro’ levels, from specific case studies about particular artists, groups or works, to broader historiographical investigations. Papers that explore new critical positions are particularly welcome. Topics may include, but are not limited to: What histories have been generated out of artists’ self-portraits or those of their subjects and to what extent has patronage informed concepts of identity? In what ways has performance or the artist’s body been a site for contesting identity? How have concepts of identity within the visual arts shifted with globalization and/or postcolonial thought? To what extent is identity more or less relevant to particular genres, periods, and cultures? How has the identity of the art historian changed over time and what does it mean to be an art historian today? Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Abstracts of 250 words and a brief biography indicating your institutional affiliation should be submitted as a single Word.doc by email to AAHSS2013@gmail.com by 1 April 2013. All speakers must be members of the AAH.

Thompson (QUB) This Winter School is being run by the Medieval and Early Modern Research group at Newcastle University on behalf of Newcastle University, Durham University and Queen’s University, Belfast in preparation for AHRC BGP2. We hope this event will be both a fact-finding mission and a community-building exercise, conducted by researchers, archivists, and curators seeking to find the best ways to work together. To attend: The event is free and all sessions are open to all interested researchers, archivists and curators in North-East England, Northern Ireland and elsewhere. We particularly welcome postgraduate researchers. If you intend to come, please send a brief email to Dr. Ruth Connolly (ruth.connolly@ncl.ac.uk) to let her know. This is for administrative and catering purposes.   The purpose of the two days is: 1. to develop a shared knowledge of the two regions’ assets in terms of archival holdings and museum/gallery collections. 2. to begin a dialogue where we can think collectively about how to support researchers, archives and museums and develop joint projects. 3. to think collectively about how we might better draw on archives and collections for research/research-training. 4. to learn from our existing and former PGRs about what PGRs need in order to make the best use of archival material in their research. The disciplinary reach is concentrated on English Literature, History, Geography, History of Art and Music and within a chronological range of 1400-1900. Summary Programme Opening: Mr. Tony Durcan (Director of Culture, Libraries and Life-long Learning , Newcastle City Libraries) A. Archives: Where are we now? The goal of this session is to map the landscape and future direction of archival research. The speakers will be Dr John Gurney (Visiting Fellow (History), NU), Ms Deirdre Wildy (Senior Subject Librarian,Special Collections, QUB), Dr. Keith Lilley (School of Geography, QUB) and Dr. Malte Urban (School of English, QUB). The talks will look at the history of archives with a particular focus on the reasons for the survival of some archives and not others and the implications of this for research; the achievements of the RASCAL project as a model for increasing knowledge of and access to archives; and the potential opportunities for archivists and researchers offered by the Digital Humanities.   B. Archivists/Curators discussing their holdings: This strand will comprise seven speakers from archive, galleries and museums in the NE and NI. We will ask speakers to: 1. describe the holdings they have which could support doctoral or other research. 2. give their sense of how collaboration between their institution and the universities should or could function. What are the best ways in which we can support one another? We are very pleased to confirm the following speakers: Dr. Liz Bregazzi, (County Archivist Durham County Record Office), Mr. Jeff Cowton (Curator, Wordsworth Trust), Mr. Peter Hepplewhite (Tyne and Wear Archives), Ms Marie-Therese Mayne (Laing Art Gallery), Dr. Vivienne Pollock (Curator of Iconographic Collections, Ulster Museum), Mrs. Gabriel Sewell (Head of Collections, Durham Cathedral Library) and Dr. Bethany Sinclair-Giardini (Archivist, PRONI). C. PGR strand: Using the Collections We will hear from up to nine current or recently completed PGRs from the three institutions who are working, or have worked, in archival settings nationally and/or internationally, and on a diverse range of archival materials. Their talks will 1. illustrate how working in archives or alongside archivists has shaped their research and/or their view of their role as a researcher 2. draw on their research experience to discuss what they think a new PGR needs to know and learn in terms of doing archival research, and the likely issues (both theoretical and practical) that may arise. We are very pleased to confirm the following PGRs as speakers at the event: Ms. Beatrice Turner (NU), Mr. Andy Burn (DU), Mr. Richard Pears (NU), Ms Nicki Kindersley (DU), Mr Alex Brown (DU), Ms. Catherine Porter (QUB), Ms. Andrea Richardson (QUB) and Mr. Michael Smith (NU).   D. Round Table This will comprise three speakers who will open up the session by outlining (briefly) the issues they see emerging from the earlier sessions: one academic, one PGR and one archivist. We want to use this session to think about the challenges of sharing resources and working together cross-institutionally in productive ways. We are very pleased to confirm that the session will be chaired by Professor Crawford Gribben (QUB) and that our speakers will be Professor Stephen Taylor (DU), Dr. Sheila Hingley (Head of Heritage Collections, DUL) and Dr. Craig Armstrong .]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for Papers - 'Byzantine Greece: Microcosm of Empire?"]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/985 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/985 CALL FOR COMMUNICATIONS Academics, research students, and other members of the scholarly community are invited to offer communications.

The Plural Fields of Art History']]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/984 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/984  Negotiating Boundaries. The Plural Fields of Art History Barber Institute of Fine Art University of Birmingham Monday 1st – Tuesday 2nd July 2013 The formation of art history as a discipline was underpinned by the claim to a special area of expertise which, in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, was accompanied by the development of particular concepts and methods, from the formal and spatial analysis of Wölfflin, Riegl or Schmarsow to the iconology of Panofsky. Linked to the emergence of the concept of autonomous art, the establishment of the discipline was achieved by means of certain exclusions; a rigid line of demarcation was drawn between art history and archaeology, aesthetic judgments were deemed irrelevant and, in a mirroring of Kantian thought, the decorative and applied arts became the objects of a separate, less prestigious, domain of inquiry. For all the recent talk of interdisciplinarity, these exclusions still shape the terrain of scholarship, producing numerous incongruities. Art historians still seldom discuss the applied arts, while in the Anglophone world architectural history remains a separate subject (with its own professional and discursive institutions). Prehistoric art and the art of the classical worlds are still topics mostly of interest for archaeologists rather than art historians, while the division between fine art and the applied arts has produced a caesura between the ‘traditional’ and the ‘modern’ in the historiography of, for example, the art of the Islamic world or China. This conference is not concerned with calling for a renewed embrace of interdisciplinary thinking, but rather with considering the implications of the status quo. Why are certain art historical topics still the domain of researchers in other disciplines? What are the consequences? Given the contemporary skepticism towards totalizing forms of thought, should it be even seen as a problem that discourse on art is so plural? Proposals are invited that address either general theoretical issues or which examine specific case studies that case light on the wider questions of historiography. Proposals should be submitted to Matthew Rampley, University of Birmingham.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers: Tim Barringer, Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale University. John M. MacKenzie, Emeritus Professor in Imperial History, Lancaster University. Hew Strachan, Chichele Professor of the History of War, University of Oxford. Jay Winter, Charles J. Stille Professor of History, Yale University. Rationale: ‘The foundation of empire is art and science. Remove them or degrade them, and the empire is no more. Empire follows art and not vice versa as Englishmen suppose.’ William Blake, ‘Annotations to Reynolds’ Discourses’ in Joshua Reynolds, Discourses on Art (Yale University Press, 1975), p. 285. ‘When the “Studies in Imperialism” series was founded more than twenty-years ago, emphasis was laid upon the conviction that “imperialism as a cultural phenomenon has as significant an effect on the dominant as on the subordinate societies”,’ Professor John M. MacKenzie, on the series description of ‘Studies in Imperialism’ for Manchester University Press. In 1914 almost one quarter of the earth’s surface was British. When that same empire and its allies went to war in 1914 against the Central Powers, history’s first global conflict was inevitable. The statistics speak for themselves in terms of recruited soldiers and auxiliaries from the British Empire: 1,300,000 Indian, 500,000 Canadian, 300,000 Australian, 100,000 New Zealand; 80,000 South African; 15,000 West Indian and Cypriot. They came too, in smaller numbers, from places like Rhodesia, Tonga, the Falkland Islands, Ceylon and Kuwait. It is the social and cultural reactions within these distant, often overlooked, societies now thrust into the mainstream of modern industrial conflict, which is the focus of this conference. The organisers are especially interested in papers which allow a decentralisation of socio-cultural analysis away from the more predictable metropolitan perspective (and away from the monolithic notion of empire) to focus instead on contrasts and complementarities of ideology throughout the geographical and ethnic extremes of both the ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ empire. From Singapore to Australia, Cyprus to Ireland, India to Jamaica, and around the rest of the British imperial world, further complexities and interlocking themes will be addressed, for example; how different strata and subsets of imperial society shaped and were shaped by the experience of total war; and how disparate societies and cultures – in all their manifestations and on their various ‘home fronts’ – shaped and were shaped by the war. As the thematic list below indicates, this conference will be of particular interest to those actively researching amongst other things: imperial and colonial history / theory, war and society, war and culture, art history, cultural studies, music history, photography, propaganda, education, pacifism, gender studies, class and race structures / relations, at the end of the pax Britannica. The themes of the conference must relate to British colonial societies and culture of the Great War and might very well include (but not necessarily be restricted to) the following areas:- Cultural reflection, formation, creation and deception. Indigenous and diaspora responses Constructions of the English and / or British Empire? Nationalism versus trans-nationalism Inter-cultural and / or multi-cultural responses Cultural erasure and historiography Mimicry, mediation and masculinity Migration and transformation Religion, secularism, philanthropy and missionaries Archaeology, museums and collecting Ideological binaries from the metropole to the periphery Civil liberties in the empire Imperial pacifism and conscientious objectors Cultural / imperial rivalry between allies Colonial women and women in the empire ‘High’ versus ‘low’ cultural responses to war Propaganda and the empire Film and the empire Music and the empire Artists and the perspectives of artists Poets / authors and the written word (including children’s literature). Photography and perspectives of photographers Imperial broadcasting and popular entertainment Linguistics and change Colonial political elites Imperial/colonial forces Imperial/colonial loyalties and disloyalties Race relations at the front, at the centre, and at the periphery Shaping of collective identities Educating the young: History text books throughout the empire University education, intellectual elites and the next generation Abstracts: A 200-word abstract and a short biography of about 100 words should be sent to both organisers by 14 June 2013.

Our inaugural evening will feature Dr Matthew Green (writer and guide) on London's 17th century coffee houses and Marcus Risdell (archivist of the Garrick Club) on London's Gentlemen's clubs. A soundtrack for the city will be provided by The Clerkenwell Kid. Dr Green’s illustrated, caffeinated talk will take you on a whirlwind tour of London’s original - and best - coffee houses. Hear the story of how, in 1652, a bitter black drink from Turkey transformed the face of London forever, brought people together, and inspired brilliant ideas that would shape the modern world. Immerse yourself in the cosy, smoky atmosphere of the Georgian coffeehouse and hear tales of all that went on inside: from dolphin dissections to lethal duels over Latin grammar, from inquisitions of insanity to salacious gossip-mongering. Feel a tinge of nostalgia for the lost, candlelit world of flickering conviviality, intellectual enlightenment, and unbridled creativity as our streets are invaded by bland Starbucks clones. Free shots of gritty black coffee, brewed 17th-century style, included. Marcus Risdell will then describe how the earliest London Clubs met in the Coffee Houses and Inns of 18th century London. Here, behind closed doors, gentlemen (and they were predominantly gentlemen) could enjoy each others' sociability whilst gaining access to an exclusive network of contacts. The 19th century witnessed an explosion in Club making catering for all classes and occupations. There were clubs for authors, for the theatrical profession, for travellers, reformers, soldiers and politicians of all colours: even one for mountaineers. Quite a few survive today.

Ten years ago, Horst Bredekamp has even urged that art history should rediscover its legacy of an all-inclusive image science – or Bildwissenschaft. Others have argued that art historians should assume a leading role in a truly multidisciplinary image science. In the meantime, however, in German academia, Bildwissenschaft has already established itself as a respected, bourgeoning and ambitious discipline alongside history of art, as evidenced e.g. in an increasing number of independent image-science departments and a massive flood of new publications, thus providing an alternative to “visual studies” as typically practiced in Anglo-American academia. At the same time, it can be argued that the potential of the Bildwissenschaft as truly multidisciplinary image-science remains largely unfulfilled, as its response to fundamental methodological and theoretical challenges imposed by contemporary scientific images has been limited. The aim of the conference is to reflect on practices and agenda of Bildwissenschaft in relation to the discipline of art history and on various issues and problems arising at the intersection of these two fields of enquiry. It will explore various modes and points of interface, interaction and antinomy (actual, as well as potential) between art history and Bildwissenschaft, both in university/academic environment and in the realm of museum and exhibition practice. While historiographic issues and specific case studies are not to be excluded, the focus of the meeting should be on conceptual, theoretical and methodological issues and their implications for research, teaching and museum/exhibition projects and presentation strategies. Possible issues include, but are by no means limited to: Is Bildwissenschaft as a specific academic discipline feasible and promising project outside its native context of German academia? What is the potential role of multidisciplinary image science in contemporary research university? What are the possibilities and limits of the transfer of specific concepts, theories and skills of image analysis between disciplines of humanities and sciences? Is a general theory of image, which could be applicable to a wide-range of artistic and epistemic images, possible and desirable project? Is Bildwissenschaft a potential place of productive cooperation/interaction between the exact sciences and humanities?

The opening decade of the twentieth century is still often perceived as a golden age of luxury, glamour, and relative social stability, before the cataclysm of World War I. The historian George Dangerfield, investigating the “strange death of liberal England,” conversely argued in 1935 that it was also a period of crisis that saw, inter alia, an upsurge in militant trade unionism, the agitation for women’s suffrage, the origins of fascism, impending constitutional crisis, and imperial unrest. Similar tensions were felt across Europe and the Americas during this transitional period. This symposium will consider the ways in which the first decade of the twentieth century came to be interpreted both as a golden age and an age of anxiety and protest, and how the visual and material culture of the time registered ambivalent feelings about the state of society in Britain and beyond. The symposium coincides with the opening of Edwardian Opulence: British Art at the Dawn of the Twentieth Century, the first major international exhibition in more than a generation devoted to surveying the full depth and breadth of the visual arts in Britain during the first decade of the twentieth century. The exhibition itself aims to overturn such diametrically opposed notions of the Edwardian period as either a golden age or a period of upheaval, showing instead that these are two points on either end of a continuum along which many new and viable perspectives of art and culture of the period may be plotted. While the exhibition focuses on the artistic production, consumption, and display of the cultural elite, this symposium will also consider the material and visual culture of protest and opposition. Papers are invited on topics relating to Britain and its empire, the United States, and Continental Europe (especially France, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia, and Scandinavia). Topics may include, but are not limited to: nostalgia for the past and avant-garde radical change in the arts notions of luxury and decadence in Britain and America since the 1880s the anxiety of empire (e.g., the Boer Wars; the Congo reform movement) the femme fatale, the “new woman,” feminism, and suffragism racial politics, eugenics, and the Nietzschean idea of the superman art at the dawn of psychoanalysis the interplay between art, science, and the occult (e.g., Theosophy) popular culture; working-class culture photography and early cinema British socialism and the arts (e.g., Fabianism and culture) Early Modernism and the Arts and Crafts movement We invite proposals for 25-minute papers on this theme from graduate students working in any discipline. Special consideration will be given to papers examining the topic in relation to British art and culture. Cross-disciplinary and comparative studies are particularly welcome.

Communion Suze Adams, UK, 2012, 11:56’ The place that inspires Communion is the Hebridean Isle of Mull, home to Suze’s maternal ancestors, where for the past decade she has been investigating and tracing family connections. From the starting point of oral histories, on Mull she has been exploring the inter-relationship between a self and a place in relation to notions of home – does home constitute people or place, is it now or then, here or there? Communion was first performed at S’Airde Beinn, a location significant to the Morison family and is a work that, through multiple sensory layers, examines issues of belonging and identity. Focusing on her own relationship with Mull, Suze asks what and where we might call ‘home’. On the Border Lizzie Thynne, UK, 2012, 56’ A daughter’s exploration of her Finnish family’s history prompted by the letters, objects, and photographs left in her mother's apartment. Fragmented memories, dreams, and diary entries are juxtaposed with the director’s journey to significant places and people in that history from during and after the Russo-Finnish wars, 1939-1944. Her mother, Lea, and her siblings were evacuated from the disputed border territory of Karelia and Lea's father was killed in 1941, fighting alongside the Germans against the Soviets. The story of her father’s death in action is contrasted with the more indirect impact of the war and its aftermath on the destinies of Lea, her mother and siblings. The Family Ties Network is a group of writers and artists who first came together at the Family Ties: Recollection and Representation conference held at Senate House, University of London in March 2012, organised by Dr. Sally Waterman and Dr. Katia Pizzi from the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies.]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Study Day - Paul Neagu: Nine Catalytic Stations]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/956 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/956 kirstie@henry-moore.org.

Music is invoked as a metaphor for painting in which formal qualities outweigh or replace altogether narrative concerns. The imbrication of music into every aspect of Victorian Aestheticism was, however, far more complex than this would suggest. This seminar will examine the role of music in British culture of the 1860s and '70s, referring to actual performers, performances and works, critical and musicological discourse, and the attempts of painters such as Frederic Leighton, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Albert Moore to create what one might describe as a musical visuality in addition to a musical iconography. Gilbert and Sullivan's 'entirely Aesthetic' operetta, Patience, provides the perfect foil for Aestheticism's nostrums; a musical satire on art aspiring to the condition of music. Tim Barringer is Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art at Yale University. His books include Reading the Pre-Raphaelites (1999; new edition, 2012) and Men at Work: Art and Labour in Victorian Britain (2005). With colleagues he co-authored American Sublime, and co-edited Art and the British Empire and Art and Emancipation in Jamaica. He is currently completing a book Broken Pastoral: Art and Music in Britain, Gothic Revival to Punk Rock and is co-curator of Pre-Raphaelites: Victorian Avant-Garde (Tate, 2012). Co-edited volumes in preparation include Victorian Jamaica and Panoramic Vistas. Open to all, free admission Lecture: Broken Pastoral and the English Folk: Art and Music in Britain, 1880-1914 Tim Barringer (Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale University) Tuesday, 23 October 17.30, Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre This lecture examines the revived interest in folk culture in late-Victorian and Edwardian Britain, exploring the relationships between ethnography, musicology and the study of historical arts and crafts. Professor Barringer contends that the aesthetic potency of visual and musical compositions drawing on folk sources lay in the widespread acknowledgement of the imminent disappearance of folk culture in the face of modernity and mechanized warfare. Under consideration are the photographer P.H. Emerson, painters George Clausen, Henry Herbert La Thangue and Augustus John, the gardener and writer Gertrude Jekyll, ethnographer E.B. Tylor, and composers Sir Hubert Parry, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Percy Grainger.  Tim Barringer is Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art at Yale University.

Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series Autumn 2012 The 2012 Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series explores intersections between modernity and historicism worldwide. It extends and enriches the Research Forum project Revival: Utopia, Identity, Memory and interacts with the provocative Research Forum theme, ‘The Quick and the Dead’. Spanning art, architecture and design across America, Europe and Asia from the nineteenth century to the present, each lecture demonstrates the allure and the value of the past in forming challenging responses to new circumstances. Interrogating the nature of revival, historicism and transnationalism, the series engages with nature and artifice, ritual and memory, and the flexible meanings of materials, images and structures that simultaneously inhabit traditional and innovative territory. Traditionally sponsored by the F M Kirby Foundation, this year the Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series is in addition sponsored by The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community; Transforming Lives through Engaging, Educating and Empowering People. “The Prince's Foundation believes that sustainably planned, built and maintained communities improve the quality of life of everyone who’s part of them. They help us both live better at a local level and start dealing with the broader global challenges of urbanisation and climate change. Our goal is a future where all of us can take part in making our communities more sustainable. We're working with everyone from local residents groups to governments to make it happen.” See www.princes-foundation.org Lectures are at 5:30pm in the Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre: Tuesday 23 October Tim Barringer (Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale University) Broken Pastoral and the English Folk: Art and Music in Britain, 1880-1914 Tuesday 20 November Rémi Labrusse (Professor, Université de Paris Ouest - Nanterre) Orientalism and "Islamophilia" Tuesday 27 November Tapati Guha-Thakurta (Director and Professor in History, Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta) The Dead Object of Public Statuary: Sculptural Iconographies of Colonial and Postcolonial Calcutta Tuesday 4 December Toshio Watanabe (Professor, University of the Arts London; and Director, Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation [TrAIN]) Ryoanji Garden as the Epitome of Zen Culture: The Process of Transnational Canon Formation This year the Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series will include two seminars which will take place in the Research Forum South Room as follows: Monday 8 October, 12.00 - 2.00pm Mark Cheetham (Professor, University of Toronto) Landscape & Language: from Conceptualism to Ecoaesthetics Tuesday 23 October, 12.00 - 2.00pm Tim Barringer (Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale University) Aspiring to the Condition of Music Open to all, free admission Organised by Dr Ayla Lepine  ]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Call for applications - Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht ]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/949 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/949 http://www.janvaneyck.nl/tagged/call-for-applications-2013]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Event - London art in the age of jazz African & Asian portraits & artists in London between the wars]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/947 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/947 www.ucl.ac.uk/equianocentre or email: equianocentre@ucl.ac.uk or telephone: 020 3108 5095]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Art & Death Workshop Series (Event and CfP)]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/946 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/946  Art & Death Workshop Series 10.00 – 12.30, Thursday 1 November 2012 Research Forum South Room, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 0RN This is the first of a series of three workshops to be held at the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2012-2013 to explore the inter-relationship between art and death.

The seminar will explore the canonical formats of art-historical writing (connoisseurship, art criticism, and academic art history) but also aims to encourage discussion on how external factors shaped the construction of art history; it will include interpretations produced by museums, commercial galleries, auction houses and various types of art press. The series brings together scholars working on similar, often intersecting subjects, with the aim to share ideas and promote further research. Attendance to each seminar is free.

It extends and enriches the Research Forum project Revival: Utopia, Identity, Memory and interacts with the provocative Research Forum theme, ‘The Quick and the Dead’. Spanning art, architecture and design across America, Europe and Asia from the nineteenth century to the present, each lecture demonstrates the allure and the value of the past in forming challenging responses to new circumstances. Interrogating the nature of revival, historicism and transnationalism, the series engages with nature and artifice, ritual and memory, and the flexible meanings of materials, images and structures that simultaneously inhabit traditional and innovative territory. Traditionally sponsored by the F M Kirby Foundation, this year the Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series is in addition sponsored by The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community; Transforming Lives through Engaging, Educating and Empowering People. “The Prince's Foundation believes that sustainably planned, built and maintained communities improve the quality of life of everyone who’s part of them. They help us both live better at a local level and start dealing with the broader global challenges of urbanisation and climate change. Our goal is a future where all of us can take part in making our communities more sustainable. We're working with everyone from local residents groups to governments to make it happen.” See www.princes-foundation.org Lectures are at 5:30pm in the Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre: Tuesday 9 October Mark Cheetham (Professor, University of Toronto) and Mariele Neudecker (artist; and senior lecturer Bath Spa University) Re-Inventing Landscape Traditions for the Present Tuesday 23 October Tim Barringer (Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale University) Broken Pastoral and the English Folk: Art and Music in Britain, 1880-1914 Tuesday 20 November Rémi Labrusse (Professor, Université de Paris Ouest - Nanterre) Orientalism and "Islamophilia" Tuesday 27 November Tapati Guha-Thakurta (Director and Professor in History, Centre for Studies in Social Sciences, Calcutta) The Dead Object of Public Statuary: Sculptural Iconographies of Colonial and Postcolonial Calcutta Tuesday 4 December Toshio Watanabe (Professor, University of the Arts London; and Director, Research Centre for Transnational Art, Identity and Nation [TrAIN]) Ryoanji Garden as the Epitome of Zen Culture: The Process of Transnational Canon Formation This year the Frank Davis Memorial Lecture Series will include two seminars which will take place in the Research Forum South Room as follows: Monday 8 October, 12.00 - 2.00pm Mark Cheetham (Professor, University of Toronto) Landscape & Language: from Conceptualism to Ecoaesthetics Tuesday 23 October, 12.00 - 2.00pm Tim Barringer (Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale University) Aspiring to the Condition of Music Open to all, free admission Organised by Dr Ayla Lepine]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Lecture - Before Banksy: Ernest Pignon-Ernest]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/928 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/928 Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Lecture - Contextualising Contemporary Asian Art]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/927 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/927 http://www.courtauld.ac.uk/researchforum/events/2012/autumn/oct12_ContemporaryAsianArt.shtml Open to all, free admission Organised by Dr Wenny Teo and Zehra Jumabhoy (The Courtauld Institute of Art)]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Conference - Artists Work in the Museum: histories, interventions and subjectivity]]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/926 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/926 http://www.vam.ac.uk/whatson/event/1966/artists-work-in-the-museum-histories-interventions-and-subject-3204/]]> Tue, 02 Sep 2014 01:45:04 +0000 <![CDATA[External News and Events - Conference - 'Display: Consume: Respond - Digital Engagement with Art']]> http://www.aah.org.uk/job/925 http://www.aah.org.uk/job/925 www.chart.ac.uk CHArt 28TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE Display: Consume: Respond - Digital Engagement with Art Thursday 15 - Friday 16 November 2012 The Gallery, 70 Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6EJ This year's conference will look at how new developments in information and communications technology affect the ways in which we engage with art.

It will examine the remarkable but largely forgotten group of narrative paintings produced by Peter Lely (1618-80) before his appointment as Principal Painter to Charles II. Many of these works depict a pastoral world of shepherds, nymphs and musicians in idyllic Arcadian settings. Organised around The Courtauld’s enigmatic The Concert, the exhibition also includes an important group of little-known paintings loaned from historic private collections. By 1654 Lely was judged to be ‘the best artist in England’ but from then on, aided by a flourishing studio, he produced almost exclusively portraits. The exhibition and the study workshop aim to locate Lely’s production before 1660 within the literary and cultural contexts of the 1640s and 50s.
