Exploring/Expanding Neuroaesthetics and Art Historical Studies

PAPER PROPOSALS DEADLINE: APRIL 20, 2017. MIDNIGHT, EDT
Since the 1990s, neuroscientists have explored the mind-body responses to visual-cum-artistic imagery. Neuroaesthetics has emerged from this venture. Although interdisciplinary in spirit, few art historians have joined scientists in empirical research projects. Consequently, neuroaesthetics remains dominated by scientists whose research is limited by small samplings from visual culture. Art historian trailblazers John Onians and David Freedberg have also been limited by the models the scientists have fostered, such as mirror neurons. This session seeks to expand both the artistic media of scientific research and the neuroscientific models for art historical research. We propose
an exploration of the efficacy of neuroscience from the side of the viewer’s reception. How do neuroscientific models offer a way of approaching the experiential/embodied effect of art objects that exceed the pictorial frame? Can neuroscience help to better articulate both sensory impressions and the transformative effects of an art-viewing experience? To what extent can neuroscience reify a lived experience within a historical context?  In the absence of raw empirical data, responses to these questions and others may be speculative or hypothetical. Paper topics should use individual case studies to speculate the efficacy of neuroscience in relation to an expanding field of art historical studies.

Job: Assistant Professor in Art History/Medieval Art, University of Richmond, USA

shieldJob: Assistant Professor in Art History/Medieval Art, University of Richmond, USA
Start Date: August 2017.
Deadline: October 30, 2016.  

The Department of Art and Art History at the University of Richmond invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the level of Assistant Professor in the field of medieval art, to begin August 2017. We seek a scholar-teacher whose field of expertise is the art of the medieval period (c. 500-1300 C.E.), with a primary geographical focus on Europe or the Mediterranean basin. We also invite applications from scholars whose work takes a more trans-regional approach. Ideally, candidates would have at least a secondary expertise in Islamic art and architecture and an interest in the rich cultural exchange of the pre-modern Mediterranean.  Teaching responsibilities include five courses annually on a semester system. Outside of regular introductory and core courses, the selected candidate will have considerable freedom in setting his or her own curriculum. We are particularly interested in scholars who, in addition to teaching courses in their field of research, are comfortable teaching introductory-level classes in the history of Western art (ancient to medieval), which may be extended for a global perspective beyond Europe, the theory and methodology of the discipline, supervising undergraduate research, and participating more broadly in the university’s first-year seminars and in the community of scholars working in the Humanities at the University. In addition to maintaining an active research program, candidates are expected to advise students and participate in the governance of the University through service on committees.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. in Medieval Art and/or Architecture, which must be completed by the time of the appointment (July 1, 2017); commitment to undergraduate teaching at a liberal arts institution; evidence of excellence in scholarship; commitment to integrating new technologies in teaching.

How to apply: Candidates should apply to: https://richmond.csod.com/ats/careersite/JobDetails.aspx?id=1007.
Applicants should submit online a curriculum vitae and cover letter which should address the candidate’s research program, teaching philosophy, experience, and interests. Applicants should also send the names of three references who will receive an automated email asking them to submit their reference letters to this web site.

A group of candidates will be chosen in November and asked to submit a writing sample. Interviews will take place at CAA in New York in February of 2017. Pending approval of the Dean of Arts and Sciences, on campus interviews with finalists will follow CAA.
