International Conference: War in the Visual Arts
CALL FOR PAPERS
September 13-14, 2013
An interdisciplinary conference will be hosted at University College Cork, Ireland to bring together multiple perspectives on representations of war in visual culture. It is intended that the conference will lead to the formation of a multi-disciplinary, international scholarly community with its own calendar of events and digital presence.
Speakers will include Dr Laura Brandon (Canadian War Museum), Dr Sabine Kriebel (University College Cork), Dr Éimear O’Connor HRHA (Trinity College Dublin) and Dr David Woods (University College Cork).
The first day of the conference will take place on the main campus of University College Cork. The second day will be held at the Crawford Art Gallery’s historic building in the centre of the city.
Topics may include but are not exclusively restricted to the following:
Art history; political and military history; social and cultural history; religious history; discourse analysis; legacy; memory; propaganda; the perspectives of colonial powers and the colonised in the visual arts; the perspectives of war artists, both as participants in warfare and as official war artists; war trauma; historiography; curatorial practice; art therapy; Irish and international perspectives on Northern Ireland.
The visual arts for the purpose of this conference will include the fine arts, cinema, advertising, graphic design and photography (to include photojournalism) and documentary.
We welcome all suggestions for the conference as well as offers to chair sections and round-table discussions.
Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words, including references. It will greatly assist the conference committee if proposals are as concise as possible (e.g. fit on one A4 page).
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 14th February 2013.
