Call for Papers: "Locating the Global in the Art of the American Viceroyalties."
52nd International Congress of Americanists.
Sevilla, July 17-21, 2006.
In early modernity, Spain's American viceroyalties were positioned at a global crossroads. Goods crossing the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans joined local products in the marketplaces of Mexico City, Lima, and other New World cities; at the same time, artists in the viceroyalties employed iconographies, pictorial genres, and formats for visual representation from other parts of the world, and, in doing so, created a truly cosmopolitan visual culture. In light of recent scholarship's characterization of Spanish imperialism in the Americas as a form of early modern globalization, what does the visual and material culture of the viceroyalties tell us about the dynamics of that system? This session seeks papers that consider the art and architecture of the Latin American viceroyalties in a global context.
The chairs invite submissions of abstracts for this symposium. The 30-minute paper may be delivered in English, Spanish, or Portuguese. Please send the title, a one-page abstract, and your contact information by 3/1/05 to both firstname.lastname@example.org and the e-mail address shown below.
Selected speakers will be notified by 3/31/05 and must register for the congress by December 31, 2005. For more information, see the following web address.
