From the Call for Papers:

Special Issue of Studi di Memofonte in Tribute to Francis Haskell
Proposals due by 24 November 2013

Fondazione Memofonte is planning a tribute to the memory of Francis Haskell in the form of a special issue of its journal Studi di Memofonte, no. 12, due to appear by July 2014. Titles of proposed papers, together with an abstract of not more than 2000 characters (including spaces) and a CV not exceeding 1000 characters (including spaces), should be e-mailed to the journal’s editors (info@memofonte.it) by 24 November 2013.

Where an abstract is accepted, the editorial board will consider the complete paper by 28 February 2014. This should not exceed 40,000 characters, including spaces, and may be accompanied by up to 10 images at a resolution of 300 dpi. If protected by copyright, permission to reproduce images should already have been obtained.

The special issue will be divided into sections corresponding to the following subject areas:
1. Concerning Patrons and Painters: Patronage, collecting and the history of exhibitions.
2. Concerning Rediscoveries in Art: The visual, historiographical and literary reception of artworks and aspects of the history of taste.
3. Concerning Taste and the Antique: The rediscovery and reception of the antique and antiquarian studies.
4. Concerning History and its Images: The uses of images in historiographical research.

The editorial board, which will include specially invited experts, will give preference to those papers most closely reflecting the methodology adopted in Francis Haskell’s own writings, with their exemplary elucidation of the multidisciplinary links between the history of social institutions and that of the appreciation and interpretation of artworks.
