Next year I will co-chair a panel with Isabella Nardi at the CAA Dallas. You are all invited to submit contributions. Please spread the word!
Here are the details of our panel:
Transculturalism in Seventeeth-Century Indian Art
Mika Natif, Princeton University, email@example.com; Isabella Nardi, independent scholar, Isabella.firstname.lastname@example.org
This panel discusses different artistic productions originating from the Indian subcontinent during the seventeenth century by examining interactions among different courts, cultures, and regions. The panel combines two broad, related fields— Islamic Indian art and South Asian art—in order to demonstrate the limitations of such cultural classifications and divisions. Our panel seeks to document the artistic traditions associated with different types of patronage (Islamic, Hindu, Christian, Jain, etc.), pointing out the ways in which these cultures intermingled and the impact each tradition had on the others.
Papers should critically address the exchange of themes and/or pictorial and architectural techniques that moved among different courts and regions, highlighting the multi- or transcultural nature of their artistic creativity.
The deadline is May 11, 2007.
