Call for Papers – University of St. Thomas (MN) Art History Graduate Student Research Symposium
The University of St. Thomas (MN) Art History Graduate Program invites proposals for its first annual graduate student research symposium. This year’s event will be held November 4-5, 2010, with a keynote talk by Dr. Eugene Wang, the Abby Aldrich Professor of Asian Art at Harvard University, on Thursday night and student papers on Friday, November 5.
This year we seek paper topics that address the theme “Word and Image” from a variety of perspectives within the field of art history. Research may explore the intersections of oral or written word and image globally, and range across all time periods and media. Possible topics may address, but are not limited to:
• Communicative elements of word and image in advertisements, material culture, and popular culture
• Interdependence of word and image in codices, manuscripts, scrolls, etc.
• Intertextuality of word and image in contemporary art
• The role of the printed word in architectural treatises, manifestos, etc.
For consideration please submit a 250-word abstract and CV to email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> by June 15. Selected participants will be notified by July 1 and your full paper will be due by Oct. 1. Paper presentations will be 20 minutes in length, and the Graduate Program will award a prize to the best paper of the symposium.
