‘Staging the Modern Interior’
The Dorich House Annual Conference #10.

Thursday May 15th /Friday May 16th 2008

Hosted by the Modern Interiors Research Centre (MIRC), Kingston University,
London

Call for Papers – Deadline for submissions: Wednesday 2 January 2008 

The focus of this year’s conference will be the long-standing role of the
interior as a ‘stage’. Linked to Pierre Bourdieu’s notion of the ‘habitus’
in which class distinctions are created, and Judith Butler’s concept of
‘performativity’ through which gender is constructed, the interior can be
seen as a place in which identities are formed and performed. This view is
reinforced by literary historians such as Victoria Rosner and Diana Fuss who
have stressed the role of ‘interiority’ in the construction of modern
self-identities. While this definition of the interior can, on one level, be
applied to any and every inside space, it is highlighted in environments
created specifically for performance – theatre sets, film sets and
television sets among them. The conference will address the ‘theatrical’ or
the ‘dramatic’ interior both in general terms and in relation to specific
spaces created for performances.

Papers are invited from a variety of perspectives and topics could include
for example:-
•	Performance and particular spaces, including the hotel lobby and
restaurant, church and office
•	Set design for the costume drama: tensions between historical accuracy and
narrative fictions
•	The filmic space, on screen and in the cinema
•	Set design at home, constructing identity in the context of the interior 
•	The changing role of art director and set designer in the production hierarchy
•	Emulating set design in public and private spaces
•	Whose space is it? Recreating the everyday in set design.
•	Ephemeral spaces and the lifecycle of the prop
•	Set design in the digital age
Abstracts of 300 words, with brief cv should be submitted to
[log in to unmask] or to Brenda Martin, Dorich House Museum,  Kingston
University, Kingston Vale, London SW15 3RN by Wednesday 2 January 2008.

Yale Center for British Art Visiting Fellowship Program
 
The Yale Center for British Art offers residential fellowships ranging from
one to four months to scholars undertaking postdoctoral or equivalent
research related to British art. These fellowships allow scholars of
literature, history, the history of art, and related fields to study the
Center’s holdings of paintings, drawings, prints, rare books, and
manuscripts. The Center also offers several pre-doctoral fellowships ranging
from one to two months for graduate students writing doctoral dissertations
in the field of British art. Applicants from North America must be ABD to
qualify.

Fellowships include the cost of travel to and from New Haven and also
provide accommodations and a living allowance. Recipients are required to be
in residence in New Haven and must be free of all other significant
professional responsibilities during the fellowship period. One fellowship
per annum is reserved for a member of the American Society for
Eighteenth-Century Studies. By arrangement with the Huntington Library, San
Marino, California, scholars may apply separately for tandem awards; every
effort will be made to offer consecutive dates.

Applications for fellowships between July 2008 and June 2009 must reach the
YCBA by January 18, 2008, and should include a cover letter, a curriculum
vitae, a statement of 2–3 pages (single-spaced) outlining the proposed
research project, and the preferred month(s) of tenure.  Applicants should
provide a title for their research project, and place their name on each
page of the application.  Two confidential letters of recommendation should
arrive under separate cover by the same deadline.

Call for Papers Art History Graduate Student Association at York University
Split Structures: Navigating the In-Between

The Art History Graduate Student Association at York University announces
its call for papers for its 7th Annual Symposium, "Split Structures:
Navigating the In-Between" to be held Friday, March 7, 2008.

Deadline: JANUARY 7th, 2008

Current cultural activity, addressing both historical and contemporary
practices, is characterized by a move towards deconstructing boundaries and
binaries. Breaking down these barriers, in theory, opens up new territories
for navigation; innovation and growth are seen as the result of moving into
the spaces between established methods, concepts, or ideologies. Often these
spaces are demarcated by the binaries of traditional modernist thought:
male/female, mind/body, science/humanities, archaic/innovative, etc. What
are the relationships between traditions, innovations and the spaces
in-between: how do we map their post-structural navigation? To what extent
is this navigation productive? What does it tell us about how cultures are
theorized and practiced?

We invite submissions for a 20-minute presentation from graduate students in
a wide range of thematic, methodological, and disciplinary backgrounds that
address the implications and the particulars of these non-linear
developments within academia and other dominant cultural institutions. We
expect to publish the papers in an online journal. Some possible
presentation topics include but are by no means limited to:

   (Inter)disciplinarity
   Implications for the cultural critic, historian, or artist
   Globalization, Regionalism and/or localities
   Communication and information technology in the arts
   Structuralism and/or Post-structuralism
   Art as political activism
   The artist as curator, critic and/or cultural worker
   Institutionalization and/or academicization of the art world
   Linear and/or non-linear art history
   Abstraction and/or representation
   Space and place

Please send a 250-word abstract of your paper, curriculum vitae, email
contact information and audio-visual needs by MONDAY, JANUARY 7th, 2008 to:
