Call for Sessions: ‘360° – Places, Boundaries, Global Perspectives,’ IV Forum Medieval Art

GERMANY-COURT-US-NAZI-ART-JEWSCall for Sessions: ‘360° – Places, Boundaries, Global Perspectives,’ IV Forum Medieval Art, Berlin and Brandenburg, September 20 – 23, 2017
Deadline: June 1, 2016.
The 4th Forum Medieval Art will focus on research at the geographical
and methodological boundaries of classical medieval studies. The
various venues in Berlin and Brandenburg are the starting point, where,
on the one hand, local medieval topics will be discussed, and on the
other hand, the rich collections of Byzantine and Middle Eastern art
are available. Accordingly, the conference will highlight the
interaction of Central European medieval art and artistic production
with other regions ranging from Eastern Europe, Byzantium, the Middle
East, the Caucasus and the Mediterranean to the British Isles and the
Baltic region. Thus research areas such as Byzantine Studies or Islamic
Art History will be brought into the focus and consciousness of
medieval studies, particularly in the context of the severely
threatened artistic and architectural monuments of the Middle East.
Especially welcome are topics discussing phenomena such as migration,
media transformation and cultural paradigms. By asking for culturally
formative regions at the borders of “Europe” and transcultural contact
zones, definitions of the Middle Ages can be put up for debate. As a
counterpart to this panorama, research about the region of Brandenburg
and Berlin will also be presented. This includes subjects of museum
studies and the history art of and in Berlin, where the development of
areas of cultural exchange has a long tradition.

Organisation: Christian Freigang and Antje Fehrmann (Freie Universität
Berlin), Kai Kappel and Tina Zürn (Humboldt-Universität Berlin) with
further partners in Berlin and Brandenburg
