CFP: The Annual Renaissance Postgraduate Symposium
Submission deadline: January 8, 2018
Art and Ideas on the Move, 1400-1600
The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London
Applicants to the conference are invited to investigate the theme of artistic, visual and cultural mobility in the period 1400 to 1600 in the ‘European’ context. Papers will be welcomed that relate to any degree of physical or conceptual foreignness, from movement between neighbourhoods, workshops, cities or geographic regions to interdisciplinary encounters. Applicants are particularly encouraged to reflect on the validity of the term ‘mobility’ and the methodological and semantic implications of its use in art-historical scholarship and enquiry.
Papers should be from emerging scholars and researchers (such as PhD students and early career academics) and preference will be given to candidates that present unpublished material. Proposals of no more than 350 words should be submitted together with a short CV to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by 8 January 2018. Successful candidates will be notified by 22 January 2018. Papers should not exceed 20 minutes in length.
