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

L’œuvre d’art entre ambition identitaire et aspiration à l’universel (5 et 6 avril 2013)

Institut Catholique de Paris , 26 rue d’Assas, 75006 Paris. Amphi Paul Ricœur

L’œuvre d’art et le sens qu’on lui donne sont porteurs d’une tension : la création est tout à la fois symbole d’une identité culturelle spécifique et dépositaire d’un message d’ordre universel. Le propos de ce colloque est d’explorer, dans une perspective historique, cette dialectique identité / universalité de l’œuvre d’art.

Intervention de Sabine du Crest sur les objets-frontières le samedi 6 à 14h.
