Call for Papers | SCSECS 2015 Session, Devices for Making Art

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on July 30, 2014

Paper, Paints, Crayons and Camera Obscura: Devices for Making Art in the Eighteenth Century
Session at the Annual Meeting of the South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
Marriott Grand, Point Clear, Alabama, 26–28 February 2015

Proposals due by 15 September 2014

Chair: Christina K. Lindeman, clindeman@southalabama.edu

While the focus of art historical study has concentrated on the finished portrait, painting, and print, this panel seeks papers that explore the historical, social and cultural context of the devices, implements, and things that made art in the eighteenth century. Possible paper topics include: new technologies that produced art products; trade and market of materials; art treatises or literary accounts on using devices. Interdisciplinary papers are welcome.
