, Stained Glass Research School – PhD Summer Symposium, University of York, King’s Manor, May 26 – 27, 2016
Deadline: May 8, 2016

The University of York’s Stained Glass Research School will be hosting
its annual PhD conference on 26th and 27th May 2016. From the early
medieval period stained glass design and manufacture has evolved and
reacted to changing tastes, styles and
technological advances. The conception and creation of stained glass
windows are influenced by factors as diverse as their architectural
settings, pictorial and
textual sources, and the politics of their patrons and custodians.

Proposals are invited for papers presenting research into any aspects
of stained glass design and creation from the  development of
iconographic and structural design, to production methods and
craftsmanship.

How to submit: Please send proposals for 20 minute papers (no more than 300 words,
including title and name of corresponding author) to Katie Harrison
(keh504@york.ac.uk) and Oliver Fearon (of509@york.ac.uk) by Sunday 8th
May.
