Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on July 13, 2020

From the Call for Papers:

Latin American Art, Visual and Material Culture in the Long Eighteenth Century
Special Issue of Arts edited by Lauren Beck and Alena Robin

Abstracts due by 15 August 2020; completed manuscripts due by 1 February 2021

We invite articles dealing with Latin American art, visual and material culture of the late seventeenth to early nineteenth centuries. Any aspect of artistic expression, any theoretical or methodological approach, and any geographic region of Latin America will be welcome. Topics include, but are not limited to, workshop practices, art and propaganda, patronage, identity and gender, spirituality and art, mainstream and peripheral relationships, reception and transformation, collecting and exhibition practices, processes of looking and of attracting the gaze, historiographic considerations, and conservation and restoration. We are particularly interested in contributions that spotlight women, Indigenous people, and people of colour, although we will also consider articles that do not focus on these demographics.

We invite contributors to submit their research in English for consideration. Please note that there is a two-stage submission procedure. We will first collect a title and short abstract (maximum 250 words), 5 keywords, and a short bio (150 words), by August 15, 2020, via email to Dr. Lauren Beck (lbeck@mta.ca) and Dr. Alena Robin (arobin82@uwo.ca). Before August 30, we will invite selected abstracts to be submitted as 7,000–9,000 word papers for peer review by February 1, 2021. Journal publication is expected in mid- to late-2021, depending on the revision time needed after peer review. Each article will be published open access on a rolling basis after successfully passing peer review. More information is available here.
