Conference: ‘Fictions of Art History’ at The Clark

Posted in conferences (to attend) by Editor on September 5, 2010

As noted at The Art History Newsletter, The Clark turns its attention to the relationship between art history and fiction this fall. Conference participants include not only art historians but photographers, critics, novelists, and poets. Included among the seventeen speakers are Thomas Crow and Mark Ledbury. From The Clark’s website:

Fictions of Art History
Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, MA, 29-30 October 2010

Clark Conferences question the definition of art history and explore the discipline’s relationships with other modes of understanding and cultural phenomena. The aim of the 2010 conference is to address the complex relationship between art history and fiction, a relationship that will be investigated in art historians’ need to tell stories, their viewing practices, their rhetoric, their writing, and in the interest of art historical work beyond the academy.

Call for Papers: ‘SECC’, Volume 41

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on September 5, 2010

Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture, Volume 41

Submissions due by 1 October 2010

Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture (SECC) is an interdisciplinary annual volume that publishes significantly revised versions of papers read at national and regional conferences of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies and its affiliates during the 2009-10 academic year. SECC strives to feature the finest work in eighteenth-century studies and to represent ASECS’s wide range of disciplinary interests. The Editors encourage theoretically informed, academically rigorous essays that reflect new directions of research in the field. Essays from previously under-represented disciplines are particularly desired. Published for ASECS by Johns Hopkins University Press and now digitized as part of Project Muse, SECC is included in the membership fees of Sponsors and Patrons of the Society and is offered to all members at a substantial discount.

Guidelines for Submission: Papers from all disciplines presented at regional and national meetings of ASECS and its affiliates between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010 are eligible for consideration. Contributions will be judged according to the highest standards of scholarship. The editors of SECC will not consider papers already submitted to other journals. Papers must be substantially revised from their presentation version and scholarly apparatus must be added. All submissions should be written in English or other commonly-used modern European languages. Submissions typically average 20 to 25 double-spaced pages in length. Current editorial practice follows the Chicago Manual of Style. In accordance with SECC’s policy of blind submissions, author’s names should not appear on the manuscript; any references to the author’s previous work should be in the third person. Please note that electronic submissions are preferred. The deadline has been extended to October 1, 2010. Final decisions will be made by December 1, 2010. Please submit appropriately revised essays to:
