Appel à communication : « Comic Approaches to Early Modern Portraiture » (Boston, RSA, mars 2016)

Hans von Aachen, Portrait de l'artiste, avant 1596Seeking paper proposals surrounding issues of comic portraiture in the Early Modern period. Optimally, we desire a range of examples related to the upper, middle, and lower classes, and self-portraits, plus other still-to-be-identified aspects of the comic in portraiture.
Topics might include, but are certainly not limited to :

– Comic Displays of Power and Authority;
– Self-Portraiture: the Artist as Comedian;
– Comic Celebrity Portraits;
– Theatrical Portraits and Popular Prints.

Proposals should include the author’s name, professional affiliation, and contact information; the paper’s title; a brief abstract (150 words or less); keywords; a one-page curriculum vitae; and any A/V requirements.

Please send proposals to both organizers by May 30: Sandra Cheng [] and Kimberlee A. Cloutier-Blazzard [].
