CFP: University of Oregon Dept. of the History of Art & Architecture 10th Annual Graduate Student Symposium
The University of Oregon Department of the History of Art and
Architecture invites papers for its 10th Annual Graduate Student
Research Symposium. This cross-cultural, interdisciplinary symposium
will explore the theme of “the copy,” interpreted in the broadest
sense to include any form of replication, reproduction, or forgery
across all time periods, media and geographic regions. While both the
art market and the art historical discipline have tended to prioritize
the value of the original art object over its copy, an increasingly
globalized society saturated with easily available reproductions in a
variety of media requires us to reconsider the complex relationship
between the copy and its original. Applicants may consider but are not
limited to the cultural, theoretical, historical and commercial
aspects of this topic.
Potential topics may consider:
- Problems of authenticity, originality, authorship, genius and
- Forgeries, counterfeits and the art market
- The copy’s effect on the transmission of artistic ideas, theories and
styles throughout history
- Prints and photographic reproductions
- Cross-cultural reproduction
- Appropriation and the ready-made
- Miraculous icons
- Digital reproduction, piracy and copyright
- Digital art museums
- Art education
For consideration, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and curriculum
vitae as PDF attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 20, 2013.
Selected participants will be notified by January 15, 2014, and the
full paper will be due no later than April 11, 2014.
