The Getty Research Institute and the Getty Villa invite proposals for
the 2017–2018 academic year.

The Getty Research Institute theme, ICONOCLASM AND VANDALISM, explores
iconoclasm not only as a form of destruction or a means of repression,
but also as a vehicle for creative expression and protest. Iconoclasm
is transformative, creating entirely new objects or meanings through
alterations to existing artworks. Charged with symbolism, these remains
testify to a history of reception, offering clues about the life and
afterlife of an object. To a certain extent, all radical changes in
cultural production can be described as iconoclastic.

Applicants are encouraged to adopt a broad approach to the theme by
addressing topics such as religious and political iconoclasm,
protection of cultural heritage, use of spolia, damnatio memoriae,
street art, graffiti, performance art, or activism.

The Getty Villa theme, THE CLASSICAL WORLD IN CONTEXT: PERSIA,
investigates the political, intellectual, religious, and artistic
relations between Persia, Greece, and Rome from the ninth century BC to
AD 651. Reaching from the borders of Greece to India, the Persian
Empire was viewed by the Greeks as a vastly wealthy and powerful rival
and often as an existential threat. The rise of the Roman Empire as a
world power quickly brought it, too, into conflict with Persia, despite
the common trade that flowed through their territories.

The 2017/2018 scholar year is the first of two terms that will be
devoted to this theme. Priority will be given to research projects that
are cross-cultural and interdisciplinary, and that utilize a wide range
of archaeological, textual, and other evidence.

Call for Applications: 12 posts in the research group “Spanish Italy and the Iberian Americas”

deorbonovo_28129Call for Applications: 12 junior scholars to join the research group Spanish Italy and the Iberian Americas, from  June 2016 to October 2017.
Deadline: March 31, 2016

A Getty Foundation Connecting Art Histories Project
co-directed by Michael Cole and Alessandra Russo,
Columbia University

The co-directors of the Connecting Art History project “Spanish Italy
and the Iberian Americas” seek twelve junior scholars to join the
research group during the period June 2016 to October 2017. Project
participants will collaborate to discern the common dynamics and study
the artistic ties that developed between these two regions in the early
modern period, especially during the sixteenth-century. Moving beyond
the concerns of national heritage and microhistory, the project depends
on scholars interested in changing their conceptions about their “home”
fields of “Renaissance” Italian or “Colonial” Latin American art. The
project will unfold in multiple stages, centered on travel and
conversation. Throughout the project, the junior scholars and a group
of senior faculty will collaborate and communicate regularly, sharing
bibliographies and contributing monthly to a research blog. As a group,
participants will travel to Italy in January 2017 to visit and discuss
works in historically Spanish regions of Italy. Each member will be
responsible for introducing a series of works, engaging information
across multiple fields. Six months after the visits in Italy, in a
second phase of the project, participants will convene in New York City
for a workshop. Each scholar will present a paper responding to the
conversation and insights elicited during the trip, and considering how
those ideas might provide prospects for the study of arts in Iberian
Americas. While in New York, the group will also visit archives and
museums in the city. The project will cover travel expenses to Italy
and New York.

Eligibility: Recent PhDs to junior faculty members working on early modern Italian
or Latin American art are eligible to apply though preference will be
given to those who did degrees or are working in Italian and Latin
American universities. Candidates should submit a statement (maximum
three pages) explaining their interest in participating; a description
(maximum two pages) of a current project; a CV; two letters of
recommendation; and a writing sample.

How to apply: Application materials should be sent as a single PDF, clearly labeled,
to : connectingarthistories@columbia.edu  by March 31st, 2016.
