Call for Papers - Second International Forum for doctoral candidates in East European art history

Conference venue: Berlin, Germany
Period: April 30, 2015
Deadline for submitting abstracts: January 30, 2015



East European art history has recently been enjoying a surge of academic interest, however, within art historical research it remains a marginal area. Accordingly, there are only few suitable platforms for young academics to discuss issues focusing on this subject area.

With the first “International Forum for doctoral candidates of art history of Eastern Europe” in May 2014 we have initiated such a forum and provided a platform for presentations of current research projects. We would like to build on the great response to this initiative. From this point onwards we will establish the forum as an annual event, with the aim to give a regular opportunity to discuss conceptual, methodical and practical problems regarding their dissertations, to network, and to share competences.

Doctoral candidates dealing with a topic in East European art history (or a neighboring discipline) are cordially invited to submit a conference proposal. We also expressly welcome papers from those who participated last year. If you are interested in taking part in the event, please send us a conference proposal outlining the issue as well as possibly the sources and methodology of your dissertation project. Dependent on the thematic focuses resulting from the proposals submitted we will select 8 to 10 contributions for twenty-minute presentations. The other participants will have the opportunity to briefly introduce themselves and their topics (5 minutes). Plenty of time will be left for discussions and the exchange of the ideas. The languages of the conference are German and English.

All proposals will be available for the participants as printed copies, and subsequent to the event will be published with basic contact details on our website.
