Intersecting Worlds: Art Historical Stu...
Jaroslav Folda will be retiring from a distinguished teaching career in
2007. The intersection of East and West in the Holy Land has been central to
his work, so in honor of his pedagogical and intellectual achievements we
are planning sessions on the art historical meeting of worlds. We construe
such intersections broadly: northern Europe meets the Mediterranean South in
the art of the Carolingians; text and image intersect in major manuscripts;
theory and the object meet in current art historical practice. The title of
our sessions is deliberately left broad, in order to encourage submissions
from scholars in the many areas that have been influenced by Folda's work.
We will choose from among all abstracts those that will form coherent
sessions, each with a different sub-focus. We encourage proposals both from
Dr. Folda's former graduate students active in art history and from other
scholars, including those whom we may not yet know but who have been
strongly influenced by his publications.
The official deadline for abstracts is Sept. 15, but we would appreciate
knowing as soon as possible who is interested in participating. Please send
abstracts to BOTH:
