CFP: In Search of Global Impact of Asian Aesthetics (Delaware, Oct 11-12, 2018)

Call for Applications (due June 8, 2018)

In Search of Global Impact of Asian Aesthetics on American Art and Material Culture

International Graduate Students Workshop (October 11-12, 2018)

The University of Delaware and Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

With the generous support of the Terra Foundation for American Art, the University of Delaware’s Department of Art History and the Winterthur Program of American Material Culture will host a two-day International Graduate Student workshop on October 11 and 12, 2018.  This workshop is part of a series of events in October 2018 to launch the project “In Search of Global Impact of Asian Aesthetics on American Art and Material Culture.” (

We invite graduate students from a variety of fields, from all regions of the world, to submit a short abstract of a dissertation in progress or a project that: 1) redefines the canon of art history, with a focus on the multidirectional impact of Asian aesthetics on American art and material culture, and/or 2) proposes new interpretations of the transcultural and transhistorical flow of aesthetics that not only redefine the geocultural boundaries of Asia and North America, but also rethink methodological formations of aesthetic emergence.

We strongly encourage proposals that consider the flow of global aesthetics beyond the circulation of objects, as well as those that examine “Asia” and “North America” as discursive structures or cultural constructs in connection with other world regions such as Africa, Europe, South America, among others. In sum: How do design ideas, patterns, and aesthetics travel across the globe, even when objects do not? 

To apply, send a short abstract written in English (300-500 words) and a 2-page CV to: “” by June 8, 2018.

Applicants will be notified of decisions by July 8, 2018.  Successful applicants will be invited to submit a dissertation chapter or excerpt, or paper, (9000-10000 words), to be pre-circulated and read before the workshop.  Official respondents are: Partha Mitter (Sussex, emeritus), Dorothy Ko (Barnard/Columbia), Lee Glazer (Freer/Sackler Galleries), Marco Musillo (Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz), with the Terra Foundation’s guest critics: Zhang Gan and Chen Anying (Academy of Arts and Design, Tsinghua, Beijing), in addition to the faculty workshop advisors from the Department of Art History and the Winterthur Program of the University of Delaware.

Lodging and meals are provided for invited participants throughout the workshop. Applicants seeking travel support should include in the application a letter demonstrating the need and a budget plan. 

In addition to the Terra Foundation, we thank the following organizations for their support: The University of Delaware’s  Office of Graduate and Professional Education and the Center for Material Culture Studies, with grants from the Unidel Foundation and National Endowment for the Humanities.

Call for Papers: The Art Museum in the Digital Age

The foundation of innovative, future-oriented museum work is a continuous reflection of its institutional conditions and the questioning of the role of museums in the 21st century. This interdisciplinary symposium is devoted to an art-historical and media-theoretical debate on the systemic changes in the art museum type caused by the universal presence of the digital: Equally at stake are questions of institutional as well as public- and object-related variables.

Traditional core areas of a museum’s mission such as collecting, preserving, researching, educating, and exhibiting are increasingly permeated by digital expansions. Media transformations are promising the opening of museum walls and the barrier-free exchange with an increasingly diverse audience. The latter’s individual as well as collective experience of an art museum is also subject to fundamental alterations and adaptations.
