Strangers in Paradise: Foreign Artists and Designers in Modern Paris, 1870-1914
This call for proposals seeks essays for an edited volume entitled Strangers in Paradise: Foreign Artists and Designers in Modern Paris, 1870-1914. We encourage in particular essays from multiple theoretical frameworks and perspectives that examine case studies of foreigners—groups or individuals—present in Paris from 1870 to 1914. The volume seeks to examine the contribution of non-French artists and designers to the development of modern art in Paris and to analyze art of the period as the product of global exchange and cultural hybridity.
We anticipate essays from art historians and design historians of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Please send a 400-word proposal and a CV as MS-word documents to Karen L. (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Susan Waller (email@example.com). The deadline is July 30, 2011.
