Diffractions (Universidade Católica Portuguesa)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2023

The next issue of Diffractions explores immateriality in artistic and cultural practices as a form of both expression and resistance. For centuries, the histories of artistic practices (as well as historiographies and historicities) have been anchored to materiality and the production of objects. As Michel Claura argues, “[t]he history of art is the history of the technique of art” (1969, 83). Indeed, curatorship as we know it today initially developed around objects and their need of care.

Call for Papers: Special Section on "Reflecting on ‘The Teen Whisperer’: Twenty Years of John Green"

Edited by Dr Jennifer Gouck

Hailed by Margaret Talbot of The New Yorker as “the teen whisperer,” John Green has arguably been one of the most influential YA authors of the twenty-first century. Yet Green was not an instant success. His debut novel, Looking for Alaska, sold only a few thousand copies – most of which, Green told Shannon Maughan in an interview for Publishers Weekly, were hand-sold. Despite garnering critical acclaim in the form of the 2006 Printz Award, Alaska did not become a bestseller until seven years after its 2005 publication.

20th Annual University of Oregon Graduate Symposium in the History of Art & Architecture

Submissions Due: February 1, 2024

Symposium Date: April 12, 2024

Reminiscence and Creation: Art as Memory Work

What does it mean to make and break memories? Who do memories belong to? How do memories shape us and the field of art history more broadly? Because each of us has a unique relationship with memories, the way they materialize is bound to differ as well. Whereas some memories are collective, shaped by a shared narrative that manifests in numerous ways, others are more intimate, individual.

Representing Jerusalem in World Literature and Art: Sacred Space and Sacred History - Call for Book Chapters

updated: 
Tuesday, November 28, 2023 - 12:17pm
Harvard University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2023

Jerusalem is the most sacred space in the world uniting mainstream religious traditions and representing various cultures and ethnicities; this city is the holiest for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The Holy Jerusalem Itself is also a hierotopic place, presenting a spatial icon associated with God’s presence and the sacredness of history. Human history is not only the history of constant wars. It is the history of creation and ongoing spiritual work. Central to the Old and New Testaments, the Hebrew Bible emphasizes the Jewish sacred connection with the city. This holy space is also a cradle of Christianity. In this edited volume, Jerusalem and its representations will be explored through the lens of world literature, art, and films.
