Dates: 19 Feb – 01 Apr, 2013
The Newberry Seminar in American Art and Visual Culture is open to
those working in the art history and visual culture of the United
States, from the colonial era to the present. The seminar provides a
forum for presenting current research, as well as a venue that brings
together a diverse community of local and regional Americanists for
intellectual exchange, collegial conversation, and debate. We
construe art history and visual culture in broad terms, embracing
painting, sculpture, graphic art, architecture, material culture, as
well as commercial and mass-mediated art including illustration,
reportage, advertising, caricature, comic art, photography, video,
film, and other visual forms. We invite papers that cross and
challenge borders both within and outside the discipline that engage
questions of methodology and ideology, probe the categories of race,
ethnicity, class, and gender, and reflect critically on the state and
outlook of the field.
To propose a paper, please send a one-page proposal, a statement
explaining the relationship of the paper to your other work, and a
brief c.v. to Carmen Jaramillo, Program Assistant, Dr. William M.
Scholl Center for American History and Culture, The Newberry. Please
send all materials as a single PDF attachment via email to:
Proposals are due on April 1, 2013.
