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).

CFP: Art Histories and Digital Humanities (Montréal, 25-27 Oct, 2018)

Universities Art Association of Canada / Association d’art des universités canadiennes, University of Waterloo
October 25 – 27, 2018

Deadline: May 1, 2018

Présidence de séance / panel chairs: Édith-Anne Pageot / Dominic Hardy, Université du Québec à Montréal/ Laboratoire numérique des études en histoire de l’art du Québec

How do digital tools and modes of working impact on our ways of conceiving and writing art histories? How is the digital coming to contest conventional parameters of chronology, periodization, text/image relationships as well as the forms of knowledge that they involve? Do digital art histories encourage the integration of more inclusive approaches (docolonizing, feminist…?) We welcome proposals that engage with either the theoretical or practical concerns that underpin this panel.

Proposals can engage with conceptual issues surrounding paradigm shifts, epistemological critique and new modalities of reading (such as eye tracking) that arise with digital art histories. We also welcome case studies (and projects in the planning or pilot stage): cataloguing, adaptive technologies, image and reproduction rights… Under what conditions is the embedding of digital humanities into our research methodologies leading to a reorganization of our ways of knowing?

Submissions will be welcome via the form available on the following webpage:
