CFP: ARTis ON 7, Issue: Art & Power

Deadline: Sep 15, 2018

The new issue of ARTis ON will focus on ART & POWER. These theme is related to both present and past, which raises numerous questions that transcend cultural and temporal boundaries.

In a dynamic of reciprocity, but also of great paradox, the relation between art and power can be as alliance but also as contestation, given the power and communicational effectiveness that art, in its various domains, holds. From fine arts to architecture, through music, theater, literature or cinema, it is therefore essential understand the context in which each work of art is created and displayed, as well as the impact on public opinion and society, on a transtemporal approach that considers all its period of existence.

CFP: Early modern English and German collecting networks and practice (Halle an der Saale 06/18)

Call for Papers
Early modern English and German collecting networks and practice:
medicine and natural philosophy
Halle an der Saale
8-9 June 2018

Deadline: 08.05.2018

The shift from a purposefully and playfully disordered Kunstkammer to the well-ordered Enlightenment museum is known. What has yet to be explored fully is the process through which this transformation occurred. This two-day workshop will investigate the role of learned societies in that transformation between England and German-speaking lands, focusing on the relatively understudied period from the foundation of the Leopoldina as a medical association (1652) to the start of the Royal Society Presidency of Joseph Banks (1778).
