ANN: NCSA Emerging Scholars Award and Article Prize

Call for Submissions for Emerging Scholars and Article Prize

 

The Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA) is pleased to announce the 2019 Emerging Scholars Award. The work of emerging scholars represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary scholarship in nineteenth century studies. In recognition of the excellent publications of this constituency of emerging scholars, this award recognizes an outstanding article or essay published within six years of the author’s doctorate or other terminal professional degree. Entrants must have less than seven years of experience either in an academic career, or as a post-terminal-degree independent scholar or practicing professional. The winning article will be selected by a committee of nineteenth-century scholars representing diverse disciplines. The winner will receive $500 to be presented at the annual NCSA Conference in 2019. Applicants are encouraged to attend the conference at which the prize will be awarded.

Entries can be from any discipline and may focus on any aspect of the long nineteenth century (the French Revolution to World War I), must be published in English or be accompanied by an English translation, and must be by a single author. Submission of essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged. Articles that appeared in print in a journal or edited collection between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018 are eligible for the 2019 Emerging Scholar Award; if the date of publication does not fall within that span but the work appeared between those dates, then it is eligible. Essays published in online, peer-reviewed journals are considered to be “in print” and are thus eligible.

Deadline for submission is July 1, 2018.

CFP: The Exhibition: Histories, Practices and Politics (Revista de História da Arte 2019)

THE EXHIBITION: HISTORIES, PRACTICES AND POLITICS

will be the next issue of Revista de História da Arte (IHA-FCSH-NOVA)

Deadline: Jul 31, 2018

Exhibitions have become, at least since the 1990s, particularly attractive case studies to museologists, cultural researchers and art historians. The growing interest in the history and theory of exhibitions has promoted a relevant national and international discussion, fruitfully crossing academic, artistic and museological contexts. Within the frame of museum studies, the specific field of exhibitions histories is still expanding, also challenging and reshaping important art historical frontiers and methodologies. At the same time, museums are critically re-evaluating their exhibitionary heritage in an unprecedented way: projects like multimedia archives, catalogues raisonés of exhibitions, virtual and physical restaging of exhibitions, etc., promote particular forms of disseminating, documenting and recovering the histories and memories of meaningful exhibition events.

Such wide and complex movement of “remembering exhibitions,” to use Reesa Greenberg’s words, demonstrates how the exhibition is defining a rich and manifold field of inquiry and research. Thus, a comprehensive investigation of exhibitions and their impacts proves necessary, given that the analysis of exhibitions’ histories, images, critiques, voices and circulations can importantly contribute to broadening the grounds of museum studies, art history, visual theory, cultural studies, photographic history, intermedial and digital cultures.

Thomas Steinruck
Business Artists. Strategische Vermarkter im Kunstbetrieb:
Andy Warhol – Damien Hirst – Jeff Koons – Takashi Murakami

“Since not many decades a new type of artist has evolved, whose sole existence can be understood as another symptom of a total economisation of all areas of life: the business artist. He is an entrepreneur and manager, art director and designer. He organizes his production highly economic and delegates all work to his numerous assistants. He has become a global brand and strategically controls all marketing efforts. As an Art Star he stages his image and merges with global luxury brands.

In this tradition of Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami are the three most successful business artists of our time are chosen, who represent this type of artist at best within the actual discourse.”

 —
Thomas Steinruck (*1977) is a Graduate of the University of Heidelberg with a degree in History of Art, Musicology and Public Law. After practical experiences in the Marketing Department of an internationally well-known museum and a Gallery for Contemporary Art, he has been working in the Fine Art Insurance sector since 2009.

It’s a rare and secret profession, comprising a few dozen people around the world equipped with a mysterious mixture of knowledge and innate sensibility. Summoned to Swiss bank vaults, Fifth Avenue apartments, and Tokyo storerooms, they are entrusted by collectors, dealers, and museums to decide if a coveted picture is real or fake and to determine if it was painted by Leonardo da Vinci or Raphael.  Continue reading “Book out now: Philippe Costamagna, The Eye (New Vessel Press 2018)”
