Appel à communication. Hard Bodies (Frankfurt a.M., 9-11 Jan 25)

Hard Bodies: Aesthetic, Materiality, and Mediality of Masculinity in American and European Art and Visual Culture, c. 1900 – today

Goethe-Universität Frankfurt a.M., Jan 9–11, 2025 Deadline: Jul 15, 2024

Description: The hard body is omnipresent in contemporary culture. It evokes purity, whiteness, and resistance to cracking or contamination. It is the result of disciplined self-optimization (physical training, a strict diet, dietary supplements, and/or surgery) and part of the iconography of white supremacy. Contemporary artists only refer to the hard male body to destroy it – like Candice Lin in her installation A Hard White Body (2017).

So, why should we revisit the hard male body, with its undeniable hegemonic bias? Why not dismiss it, and look at the fragmented, performative, vulnerable, and transformative male body instead?

Appel à communications. (P)Ostkolonialismus (Berlin, 24-25 Oct 24)

(P)Ostkolonialismus (Berlin, 24-25 Oct 24)

Berlin, Oct 24–25, 2024 Deadline: Jul 14, 2024

In the 19th century, Poland, the so called “Wild East”, already formed part of Germany’s colonial aspirations (Kopp 2012). Both Prussia and the German Empire, as well as the Nazi state, repeatedly attempted to fulfill their colonial settlement ambitions in Eastern Europe. This materialized in Bismarck’s Germanization policy, the occupied territory “Ober Ost” during the First World War, and Nazi Germany’s “Generalplan Ost”. The German mass crimes in the region during the Second World War were based on these continuities of anti-Slavic policies and convictions. Colonial and racist patterns of thought and behavior towards Eastern Europe continue to have an impact in many respects in the present day.

As early as the late 1990s, . . . → En lire plus

Bourse Focillon 2024 (séjour en 2025) : jeune recherche dans le monde universitaire en France

La bourse Focillon est une bourse d’étude créée au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, pour instituer des liens entre la France et les États-Unis. Elle porte le nom du grand historien de l’art Henri Focillon (Dijon, 1881-New Haven (Yale) 1943), directeur du musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, professeur à la Sorbonne, et dans différentes universités américaines à partir de 1932. Financée à son origine par le ministère des Affaires étrangères, elle est portée depuis 2010 par le ministère de la Culture, précisément par la délégation à l’inspection, la recherche et l’innovation (DIRI), au sein de la Direction générale des patrimoines et de l’architecture.

Appel à communication : Mannerism and Crisis (Boston, 20-22 Mar 25)

When Mannerism emerged as a field of art historical study during the first part of the twentieth century, it was construed as a moment of crisis. To proponents of Geistesgeschichte such as Max Dvořák, Walter Friedlaender, and Erwin Panofsky or Marxists like Friedrich Antal and Arnold Hauser, Mannerism became a token of crises, either of a philosophical and existential nature or an outcome of tensions in the socio-economic base. Much criticism of these scholarly approaches has since emerged from different ideological and methodological perspectives, including that of John Shearman who during the 1960s argued for a “stylish style,” indifferent to societal change. The aim of this session is not to rehearse the historiography but to . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Baroque Times: The table’s scenography (Vila Nova de Foz Côa, 14-16 Nov 24)

International Congress: « Baroque Times: The table’s scenography ».

Call for Papers: When discussing the table or the act of being at the table, our immediate thoughts go to the act of eating, the company present, and the food to be shared. However, the table transcends its practical function to become a richly layered symbol, both materially and conceptually, embodying sociability in myriad ways throughout history.

During the modern era (17th-18th centuries), the table’s significance unfolded across diverse contexts and environments, from the opulent settings of palaces to the humble abodes of common citizens. Regardless of setting, the table served as a focal point, drawing together a spectrum of personalities and activities, thus assuming a . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Vanity, Morality, and Race in Seventeenth-Century Britain (New Haven, 27-28 sept. 2024)

Puritan Picture: Vanity, Morality, and Race in Seventeenth-Century Britain.

Yale Center of British Art, New Haven, CT, USA, Sep 27–28, 2024

The middle decades of the seventeenth century in Britain were characterized by radical political, religious, and social change. In this period, an unknown artist created a remarkable painting that spoke to fears and anxieties crystallizing around a perceived increase in moral laxity, gender transgression, and the insidious influence of foreigners. The painting depicts two women side by side, each wearing a conspicuous array of beauty patches. The woman on the left reprimands her companion with the words “I black with white bespott: . . . → En lire plus

Appel à publication : Early women curators and the making of institutional collections (1890s-1970s)

“The museum is me!” Early women curators and the making of institutional collections (1890s-1970s). Edited volume.

Between the 1890s-1970s, women began accessing decision-making roles in museums worldwide. This edited volume proposes a transnational exploration of both the contributions and the challenges of pioneering female curators regarding museum practice, collection-making, and display design. As scholarship (Diaz-Andreu, 2005; Hill, 2016) starts unearthing the distinctiveness of women’s curatorial practices, we aim to define and explore the extent of this potential gendered approach to collecting and curating. What did pioneering women curators achieve, and what can a gender perspective on museum history contribute to uncover?

Beyond describing obstacles to women’s agency in curatorial work (such as “marriage bars”, salary gaps, and prejudices against female . . . → En lire plus

Appel à communication : Geological Imagination in the Art of the Long Nineteenth Century (Huntington Library, 2025)

The Geological Imagination in the Art of the Long Nineteenth Century (Huntington Library, 2025).

Organizers: Nina Amstutz (University of Oregon) Stephanie O’Rourke (University of St Andrews)

Call for Papers: In the last decade, there has been a surge of interest in geology and its attendant fields – such as stratigraphy, paleontology, and geomorphology – in the arts and humanities, catalyzed by the notion that we have entered a new geological epoch. Yet this “geological turn” in the academy did not originate with the recent public awareness of anthropogenic climate change. During the long nineteenth century–a period widely accepted as the ‘crucible of western modernity’ and the emergence . . . → En lire plus
