The Global Renaissance, Revisited
Fifteen years after the publication of Claire Farago's groundbreaking volume, Reframing the Renaissance, art history still struggles with the concept of a "Global Renaissance" as well as with how to handle art created outside of Western Europe. At this moment, when we are moving beyond the geographical confines of traditional Renaissance art history, it is necessary to re-evaluate our methods of analysis and discussion, by finding new strategies for conceptualizing processes of transmission and reconfiguration when the Renaissance crossed borders. What are some commonalities among global art of the early modern period? This session seeks papers exploring case studies of art from around the world, outside of Western Europe.
Please send a current CV and abstract of no longer than 150 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 5.
