The Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University will host a one-day symposium on Saturday, February 27, 2010, to explore topics related to the exhibition "A Room of Their Own: The Bloomsbury Artists in American Collections."
We invite proposals for presentations on such topics as Bloomsbury art production, criticism, display, and collecting; the Omega Workshops; design of books, fashion, gardens, architecture, domestic spaces, ceramics, furniture; ekphrastic writing; and other aspects of visual culture related to the Bloomsbury group or its influences.
Please submit by email a 250-300 word proposal with a title, your name, email and mailing addresses, phone number, and institutional affiliation to Professors Christine Froula at firstname.lastname@example.org and Christopher Reed at email@example.com by September 11, 2009. The museum will offer all speakers a small honorarium and will cover travel expenses and accommodations.
