From 1 to 3 June 2022, the next conference dedicated to young researchers will be held in Paris. This conference is part of a longstanding collaborative project, created in 2002, which consists in regularly organizing a symposium aiming to assess the current status of the research on Renaissance art and culture. Since 2002 the conferences have been held in turn in one of the four organizing institutions (Art History department of the University of Jaén, Leipzig, Würzburg and of the École Pratique des Hautes Études – PSL (HISTARA) in Paris.
These conferences offer young scholars the occasion to explore and discuss their different research methods and lines of inquiry, and give a comprehensive view of the many different emerging research approaches to architectural history and to the analysis of the relations between architecture and the other visual arts in the Renaissance.
For this edition the organizers invite submissions that explore the artistic and cultural exchange between France and Germany in the Early modern era (ca.1400-1600) in the European context (Italy, Eastern Europe, Low Countries, etc.). History of Collecting and Antiquities as active sources of inspiration are also themes that are encouraged. We warmly welcome interdisciplinary approaches.
So as to leave space for discussion, proposals should be for 25-30 minute papers (preferably in French or German, but English, Italian and Spanish are accepted).
The third day will include guided visits to various monuments and to an exhibition of architectural models.
The texts of the papers will be published on the webpage HISTARA 7347.
For the contributors: lodging will be provided, together with a reimbursement of 150 euros max to cover travelling costs.
