CFP/Appel à contribution: Global Encounters: Exchanges and Transfers of Knowledge in the Early Modern World

Conference: UAAC/ AAUC (Universities Art Association of Canada/l’association d’art des universités du Canada)

Location: Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, October 17-20, 2013

This panel considers the exchange and transference of artistic and architectural knowledge in the early modern global world. Specifically, it reflects upon how such encounters instigated new and transformed prevailing perceptions about early modern visual artistic culture. Thus, this panel invites papers that consider these concepts not only from intercontinental perspectives (Spain, England, Italy, Hungary, and so on), but also among transoceanic environments (Americas, Europe, Asia, etc.). The panel seeks to break traditional perceptions about the flow of information among disparate territories and peoples. Topics could include, but are not limited to: 1) the ways the colonial encounters altered European art and architectural forms; 3) how the many European courts engaged with the Renaissance and Baroque styles; 2) how indigenous and colonial peoples crafted new artistic forms that hallenged or unsettled European perceptions of the colonies; 3) the interconnections between colonial territories or various royal courts are encouraged.

Session Chair: C. Cody Barteet (PhD)

Affiliation: University of Western Ontario

Each proposed paper must include: name of individual submitting the paper and their email contact, paper title; abstract (150-word maximum); keywords; and a brief curriculum vitae (300-word maximum) that specifies their rank and institutional affiliation (if applicable).

Italy, Persia, and Early Modern Globalism

Appel à contribution/Call for papers

CAA Annual Conference, Chicago, February 12 – 15, 2014

Deadline: June 7th, 2013

In late antiquity the eastern frontier of the Roman empire confronted Sassanian Persia. The rivalry between these two world empires was redefined centuries later when the Pope served as the titular head of Christendom and the Shah led Safavid Iran. This session centers on interactions between Italians and Persians as represented in visual culture from 1500-1700. Papers that consider dialogue and exchange, transculturation, or cultural mobility will be especially welcome. Topics might include: maps and travel, missionaries and hagiography, embassies and political imagery, and involve media such as paintings, sculptures, prints, ephemeral decorations, and the decorative arts.
