Summer Research Academy: Encounters in World Art History
Getty Research Institute Los Angeles, California
August 9-September 7, 2012
Call for applications from art history doctoral students studying in Africa, Asia, and Latin America
Art history is rapidly being reconceptualized to meet new social, political, and aesthetic demands. Essential contributions to these developments will come from junior scholars in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, whose research questions, methods, and objects of study may be informed by the intellectual, linguistic, and political contexts of their practice. This first Summer Research Academy seeks eight doctoral students from those regions to research and converse with eight doctoral students and eight senior scholars from the International Consortium on Art History. The theme for the 2012 Summer Research Academy is “Encounters in World Art History.” We seek submissions that address artistic and art historical encounters, such as how encounters are staged, works of art as products of encounters, and how such artworks are received. The topic will be explored using library resources and special collections at the Getty Research Institute as well as collections at the J. Paul Getty Museum. The deadline to receive applications is March 1, 2012.
