Call for Papers | MAHS in the Twin Cities, 2015

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on November 12, 2014

I’m glad to put in a good word for MAHS, an organization that far exceeds common expectations of a regional society. Particularly because of its commitments to bringing together scholars from both the museum world and the academy, the organization fills a vital need within the field of art history in America. Conference participants will be in for a treat with the Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ hosting the exhibition Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna’s Imperial Collections during the event. The program will include general sessions on ‘Architecture’, ‘American Art’, ‘Latin American Art’, and ‘Nordic Art’; thematic sessions addressing ‘Midwest Collections’, ‘Representing Non-European Religions in Early Modern Europe’, ‘Clothing, Textiles, and Fiber’, ‘Decorative Arts and Design’, ‘Gender and Sexuality’, and ‘Prints and Drawings’; along with period panels on ‘Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Art’ and ‘Nineteenth-Century Art’. See the newsletter for a full listing. CH

Call for Articles | ‘The Architectural Review’ Seeks Submissions

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on November 12, 2014

From H-ArtHist:

static.squarespace.comDoes your research into architectural history deserve a wider public? The Architectural Review seeks contributors for its new History section, a 1,200-word feature which aims to bring the unexamined to light and open new perspectives on more familiar questions. Any subject relating to architecture or urbanism will be considered, whether it concerns a practice, person, building, exhibition, event, or a wider theme. However, international topics having current relevance for an audience of architects, historians, and non-specialists alike are particularly welcome. The tone should be witty and engaging, but also informed and authoritative.

Forthcoming examples include essays on British architecture on the eve of the First World War, queer Gothic space, Walter Gropius’s Playboy Club in London, and a postwar estate of Scandinavian-style houses for the intelligentsia in Warsaw.

Abstracts of 200 words maximum, plus a short biography, should be sent to the magazine’s History Editor, Tom Wilkinson, tom.wilkinson@emap.com.
