CFP: Emerging Scholars of East European, Eurasian, and Russian Art
SHERA-sponsored session at CAA 2017 (New York, Feb 15-18)
The Society of Historians of East European, Eurasian, and Russian Art and Architecture (SHERA) is looking to sponsor a special session at the next College Art Association Conference that highlights the scholarship of advanced Ph.D. candidates and recent graduates working on art historical topics related to Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and Russia. Papers may discuss particular visual themes, sources, methodological perspectives, and/or historiographical issues related to the art and architecture of these regions from the Middle Ages to the present. Of particular interest are papers that also consider the state of the field and address ways in which recent scholarship on the artistic production of these regions may complement, and even provide a corrective to, current art historical narratives.
Note: An ‘emerging scholar’ is a SHERA-member either at the dissertation stage or someone who has received a Ph.D. or M.A. since 2012.
Session organizer and chair: Alice Isabella Sullivan (History of Art, University of Michigan) Proposals should include a paper title and abstract (up to one page, double-spaced) and a brief CV (up to two pages), and should be sent electronically as a single .pdf attachment to Alice Isabella Sullivan and to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for proposals: April 10, 2016
