ASCHA seeks papers that examine how Eucharistic doctrine was propagated — or challenged — in Byzantine and Medieval art from the twelfth to fifteenth centuries. We are especially interested in how artists envisioned the Eucharist theologically and transcended literal representation of the Last Supper to convey other dimensions of the Eucharistic mystery. The symposium's keynote speaker is Aden Kumler, Assistant Professor of art history at the University of Chicago, who will be presenting research from her forthcoming book "The Multiplication of the Species: Medieval Economies of Form, Accident and Substance."
Proposals of no more than 300 words should be submitted, with a cover letter and 2 page C.V. by September 1, 2013.
The symposium will be held at the Art Institute of Chicago on February 11, 2014, one day prior to the CAA’s annual conference. Entrance free with museum admission.
