Call for Papers for Postgraduate students

 

New Dialogues in Art History at The Warburg Institute

 

Art history has been at the heart of The Warburg Institute since its
foundation. Countless PhD theses have been researched and written using the
unique Warburg Library and Photographic Collection. Discussion among peers
studying at, or visiting, the Institute has in turn generated some of the
most ground breaking ideas in art history of the past century. The dynamic
between study resource and meeting-point has ensured The Warburg's
longstanding reputation as the pre-eminent centre for art historical
research in the world.

 

'New Dialogues in Art History' was founded in October 2017 to continue this
tradition among the next generation of art historians who use The Warburg
and its resources for their doctoral research. PhD students meet to present
and discuss their research with their peers with discussion revolving around
a chosen theme. In order to mark the continuation of the seminar series into
the new academic year, The Warburg Institute will host a one-day 'New
Dialogues' conference funded by the London Arts and Humanities Partnership
(LAHP) on Wednesday 26 September 2018.

 

The conference will complement the seminar group by organising the panels
around the chosen themes of the 2017-18 seminar cycle. 

These themes are:  

-    Attribution and Authorship

-    Prestige and Patronage

-      Making and Materiality

-      Itinerancy and Interchange

 

All art historians who are currently working on or who have recently
completed (within the last year) a doctoral thesis at any institution are
invited to submit a proposal for one of the panels. Papers can focus on any
art historical aspect, time period or topic and should be no longer than 20
minutes in length. Applicants are asked to indicate the theme(s) relevant to
their research when submitting their proposal.

 

To apply, please send an abstract (maximum 300 words) and a brief biography
(maximum 250 words) to [log in to unmask]
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>  by 29 June 2018 with the subject
'Conference'.  Successful applicants will be notified by 11 July. Limited
funding is available to subsidise travel costs.
