Call for papers: Renaissance Research Colloquium

Renaissance Research Colloquium
A collaboration between the Institutes of Art History at the University of Leipzig and the University of Würzburg with the École Pratique des Hautes Études Paris (Sorbonne), PSL (HISTARA)

On the 8th and 9th of June 2018 the International Research Colloquium for Renaissance art and cultural history established in Leipzig in 2002 will have its next edition. The colloquium is currently organized in collaboration with the Institute of Art History in Würzburg and the École Pratique des Hautes Études Paris, and the hosting of the conference rotates every two years between the three institutes.

Apart from the general frame of “Renaissance”, there is no restriction on the geographical location of topics. The conference will engage with a wide spectrum of current art historical scholarship whilst providing an academic platform for young scholars to discuss innovative approaches to Renaissance Art. Papers on aspects of cultural transfer, the relationship of the arts and humanism and the history of collecting are especially welcome.

To allow time for discussion the lectures should not exceed 25-30 minutes. Hotel accommodation will be provided; travel expenses will be reimbursed up to a maximum of 200 Euros.

Please send your proposals (in English, German, Italian or French; 300 words maximum) along with a brief CV including professional affiliation and contact information to one of the following e-mail addresses by January 15, 2018:
