Call for papers - 2010 College Art Association Conference
Session - British Art: Survey and Field in the Context of Glocalization
The recent three-volume History of British Art published by the Yale Center for British Art and Tate Britain invites reflection on how art-historical surveys situate British art in political, economic, social, and cultural processes that affirm, vex, and otherwise relate “glocally,” integrating global, regional, and local contexts. This session inquires what is “glocal” in the historiography, narratives, and methodologies of British art surveys and the ways they lend coherence to a field, blur its boundaries, or position its subject in the mainstream or margins of art history. Also, how do they treat subjects and subjectivities-citizen, immigrant, emigrant, diasporian, tourist-that bridge local and global through lineage, heritage, memory, and travel? To what effects do they distinguish what is non-British or serve readers outside Britain? In what ways do British art surveys or British art in world art surveys advance non-art, glocal political, economic, or social relationships?
The session is part of the 2010 College Art Association Conference scheduled for Chicago, February 10-13.
