Between, Among, and Across: Transhistories of the Visual
February 27-28 2014
Elon University

CALL FOR PAPERS:

As we expand the study of art history across regions and periods in an increasingly less Eurocentric and Enlightenment-based model, we strive for better ways to reconsider chronological and geographic approaches to writing and teaching the histories of visual objects even those that might be European or made in the context of the Enlightenment. We seek papers that are transhistorical, transchronological, and/or transnational. We anticipate presentations that address these concerns creatively, rigorously, contingently, and/or in a questioning frame of mind. Please submit an abstract of up to 500 words and your CV to ARH@elon.edu by July 11, 2014.
