CFP: Framing Environmental Dimensions in American Art

Terra Foundation for American Art Paris Center — April 5, 2018

Deadline: December 29, 2017

The Terra Foundation Research Workshops represent an opportunity for doctoral candidates and scholars at the postdoctoral level to informally present and discuss their research on American art with their peers. For this second edition, we are inviting presentations on research topics that explore the relationship between the visual arts and changing notions of the environment. This may include, for instance, recent works on ecocriticism, weather and climate, physical boundaries, landscape, or cartography. Each participant (up to four per workshop) will give a fifteen-minute presentation, followed by a collegial one-hour discussion. Papers will be circulated in advance.

Eligibility: Open to Europe-based PhD candidates and postdoctoral scholars having completed their PhD in the last four years in art history, aesthetics, or American studies, insofar as the proposal mainly pertains to American art and/or visual culture from the colonial period to 1980. Applicants to the workshop are invited to submit their abstracts (up to 250 words) and CV by December 29, 2017 to:moreteau@terraamericanart.eu

Travel and accommodation in Paris for one night will be reimbursed upon presentation of receipts (up to 540 €).

Workshop language: English
